'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.

'Delivers an off-kilter view of venal humanity via inimitable prose... brims with energy and brio' The Times

Other titles in the Hoke Mosely series in Penguin Modern Classics include Miami Blues, New Hope for the Dead and Sideswipe, while fans of the books include Quentin Tarantino, Elmore Leonard and James Lee Burke.

Review:

Delivers an off-kilter view of venal humanity via inimitable prose... brims with energy and brio ( The Times )

Willeford stills knocks most writers into a cocked hat (Leonard, Hiaasen, you name them) ( Guardian )
