This is an absorbing narrative of fratricidal betrayal by the National Book Award-winning author of Paris Trout.

Critic Reviews

"Gripping." (Publishers Weekly)
"Chilling....Dexter...is adept at portraying those on the fringes of the mob who are sucked into its fury. His characters are unsavory but convincing, his action vicious." (Library Journal)
