All Shot Up Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback


'Outrageous, shocking, wonderful' The New York TimesA golden Cadillac big enough to cross the ocean has been seen sailing along the streets of Harlem.

A hit-and-run victim's been hit so hard she got embedded in the wall of a convent.

A shootout with three heistmen dressed as cops has left an important politician in a coma - and a lot of money missing. And Grave Digger Jones and Coffin Ed Johnson are the ones who have to piece it all together. All Shot Up is chaotic, bloody - and completely unforgettable.

Chester Himes wrote detective fiction darker, dirtier and more extreme than anyone else dared.
