"No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford". (Elmore Leonard). In a hot Florida summer, Sergeant Hoke Moseley is losing his mind: his ex-wife just remarried, his teenage daughters want to quit school, his beat partner is eight months pregnant - and living in his house - and his desk is disappearing under a ton of cold cases. So a little holiday to Singer Island seems like the perfect break. But things don't always work out. A handsome, cowboy-hatted psychopath is planning another armed robbery - one that will draw in a grumpy dog-poisoning retiree and leave half-a-dozen bystanders dead. And in this hilarious, wicked tale of crime and mid-life crisis, it seems that only Hoke can stop him. "Better than Hall and Hiaasen and as good as Elmore Leonard at his best". ("Time Out"). This is the third in the "Hoke Mosely" series; the other titles in Penguin Modern Classics include "Miami Blues", "New Hope for the Dead" and "The Way We Die Now", while fans of the books include Quentin Tarantino, Elmore Leonard and James Lee Burke.
