Former private detective Joe Kurtz finds himself in over his head when semi-retired crime boss Don Byron Farino hires him to find the New York mob's missing accountant, a man with far too much knowledge of the Family business, but Kurtz soon discovers that someone will do anything to keep him from finding the missing man. By the author of The Crook Factory. Reprint.

"A cinematic story."--Chicago Tribune

"A hardcore full-tilt rocket ride."--Rocky Mountain News

"The toughest dark 'hero' in crime fiction since Parker."--Denver Post

"HARDCASE is very tough, with a high body count...Simmons writes better than most, and his ex-PI. Joe Kurtz, who tries to hold onto a semblance of ethics while working for a semi-retired Mafia don, is an interesting character. ..there are some nifty Chandleresque twists and some nicely done upstate New York scene layering."--Boston Globe

"An exceptional tale...there's no letdown from the explosive start to hell-for-leather finish in this hard-as-nails detective story. Watch out, bad guys! Kurtz is here!Enthusiastically recommended."--Library Journal

[Simmons'] narrative is all sinewy blood and gristle...hard to beat for a pulp-fiction beach read."--Publishers Weekly
