About this title

Synopsis:

Set in a decaying US factory town, this book centres around Lenore Thomas, a troubled narcotics cop caught up in a new and complex investigation. This is the author's first novel and winner of the Mysterious Press Best First Novel 1990.

About the Author:

Jack O'Connell (b. 1959) is the author of five critically acclaimed, New York Times-bestselling crime novels. Born in Worcester, Massachusetts, O'Connell's earliest reading was the dime novel paperbacks and pulp fiction sold in his corner drug store, whose hard-boiled attitude he carried over to his own writing. He has cited his hometown's bleak, crumbling infrastructure as an influence on Quinsigamond, the fictional city where his first four novels were set, and whose decaying industrial landscape served as a backdrop for strange thrillers which earned O'Connell a reputation as a "cyberpunk Dashiell Hammett." O'Connell's most recent novel was The Resurrectionist (2008). A former student at Worcester's College of the Holy Cross, he now teaches there, not far from where he and his family live just outside of his hometown.
