Summary
"With gimlet eyed cool and razor sharp wit, The Low Desert explores both the depravity and humanity at the heart of Tod Goldberg's critically acclaimed gangster universe, first introduced in Gangsterland, continued in Gangster Nation, and expanded here with all-new and returning characters. The uncle of an FBI agent spends his life as sheriff in different cities, living too close to the violent acts of men; a cocktail waitress moves through several desert towns trying to escape the loss of an adopted daughter who went missing under unexplained circumstances; a drug dealer with a penchant for karaoke and a bullet hole in his foot meets a talkative lawyer and a silent clown in a Palm Springs bar. These surprising and thrilling stories from a master of modern crime fiction elaborate and enrich the dynamic Sal Cupertine/Rabbi David Cohen gangster universe."--Provided by publisher.
