Author(s): Jim Nisbet
What's a guy to do when he lives under a bridge and has an unquenchable thirst for martinis? Kill for cash. So goes the logic at the heart of Old and Cold, leading to a spree of hits that are sometimes perfectly executed, sometimes messy, always set against the backdrop of San Francisco's beaches, bars and murky darkened streets. Told at breakneck speed in a bravura voice, this novel is Jim Nisbet's finest work yet. A tough and tender love letter to a city's underbelly, this is a shockingly funny tale of suspense that won't let readers go until the very last page.
"A grim, fiercely written entry whose best feature is one baleful voice, one step from the grave."---"Kirkus"
