POP. 1280 Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A classic crime novel from 'the best suspense writer going, bar none' New York TimesNick Corey likes being the high sheriff of Potts County.

But Nick has a few problems that he needs to deal with: like his loveless marriage, the pimps who torment him, the honest man who is running against him in the upcoming elections and the women who adore him. And it turns out that Nick isn't anything like as amiable, easy-going or as slow as he seems.

He's as sly, brutal and corrupt as they come.
