'No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford' Elmore Leonard
Sergeant Hoke Mosely is struggling: his division chief is making ominous plans for him, a man he sent to jail for murder has moved in across the street, and he's stuck on one of his toughest cold cases yet. So the last thing he needs is to be sent undercover just as he's beginning to make some headway with his work.
South of Miami, he has everything confiscated - wallet, ID, even his false teeth - and is taken as a migrant worker to a farm surrounded with rumours of murder and slavery. With only a Filipino prostitute and his own wits to protect him, Hoke faces vicious rednecks and his own scheming boss in this funny, vibrant masterpiece of hard-boiled fiction, the final Hoke Mosely novel.
