When he's not driving his taxi, Cooper MacLeish, a Vietnam vet, kills time at the local pool hall. A man with a violent past and a nowhere future, Coop's life is irrevocably shattered when he agrees to shelter a teenage runaway whose mother, Vivian, has died in mysterious circumstances. In his search to find out how Vivian died, Coop asks questions powerful people would prefer unanswered. His curiosity brings him up against a sadistic killer identified only by the teardrop tattooed on his cheek. To take on Teardrop on the mean streets of Chicago, Coop must summon the skills learnt in Vietnam.

Review:

?Sam Reaves is too good, he makes me nervous. A Long Cold Fall is as hard and muscular as the early Hammett, and as full of promise? Robert B. Parker ?An exemplary beginning. The setting is Chicago, whose infinite and frequently acrid variety Reaves appears to know as well as does Sara Paretsky? Los Angeles Times ?This impressive debut grabs attention with its opening chapter and never lets up? Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Cooper MacLeish, a veteran of the Vietnamese War, leads an aimless existence as a taxi driver in Chicago until circumstances beyond his control bring him up against a sadistic murderer. All of his training in Vietnam must be used to stalk the killer through the mean streets of the city.
