The Heat's on Paperback
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
Detectives 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 dwarf drug dealer, though, isn't coming back - he died after Grave Digger punched him in the stomach. And the dwarf's 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. With a new Introduction by Noel 'Razor' Smith.
