HARD AS NAILS continued
...And while someone is murdering all the heroin addicts
in Buffalo and hauling away the bodies, a serial killer
called the Artful Dodger hatches his twisted plan.
In Kurtz's corner is police detective Rigby King, a beautiful
woman who had been his young lover when they were both
rebellious teenagers in Father Baker's Orphanage. Rigby
also has designs on Joe Kurtz, but whether they're aimed
at bedding or abetting him, helping him stay alive or
simply putting him away for life, Kurtz will have to discover
the hard way.
Lightening fast pace and unrelenting action are the hallmarks
of this series, but the epic struggle portrayed in this
book sets a new standard for crime fiction. Saturated
with the ragged-edged aggression of the Buffalo streets,
Dan Simmons's HARD AS NAILS comes down like a hammer smashing
a thumb on a cold day.
