Paperback / softback

Description

'The greatest find in American crime fiction since Raymond Chandler' Sunday TimesDetectives Coffin Ed and Grave Digger Jones have lost two criminals.

Pinky ran off - but it shouldn't be hard to track down a giant albino in Harlem.

Jake the drug dealer, though, isn't coming back - he died after Grave Digger punched him in the stomach. And his death might cost them both their badges. Unless they can track down the cause of all this mayhem - like the African with his throat slit and the dog the size of a lion with an open head wound. Chester Himes's hardboiled tales of Harlem have a barely contained chaos and a visceral, macabre edge all their own.
