In a rollercoaster ride of plot and counter-plot in the grimy and violent side of the Midwest, Tooley, a Scottish student on sabbatical becomes entangled in the gangland underbelly of the Twin Cities. Murder, illegal dog-fighting, robbery, gang warfare and a suicide bomber conspire to sink him deeper into the mire of the criminal world. Can he find a way of escaping without incurring the wrath of the rival mob bosses, the FBI and the police, and still manage to stay alive?
If there is a hilarious side to noir, this is it. This “oh-so-damned cynically funny” novel will keep you alternately on the edge of your seat and rolling on the floor laughing.
