Publisher's Summary

Detective Matt Cordell was happily married once, and gainfully employed, and sober. But that was before he caught his wife cheating on him with one of his operatives and took it out on the man with the butt end of a .45.

Now Matt makes his home on the streets of New York and his only companions are the city's bartenders. But trouble still knows how to find him, and when Johnny Bridges shows up from the old neighborhood, begging for Matt's help, Cordell finds himself drawn into a case full of beautiful women and bloody murder.

It's just like the old days - only this time, when the beatings come, he may wind up on the receiving end.

    "Classic Noir"

    This is a great story in the hard case crime tradition. It’s a down and out story with lots of unredeeming characters. The narrator has a slightly jaded cool observational style that works perfectly. If you like Chandler, Hammet, or MacDonald you’ll love this story.
