Jack Foley and Cundo Rey are road dogs: trusted jailhouse comrades watching each other's back. They're so tight, Cundo's using his own money and his shark lady lawyer to get Foley's sentence reduced from thirty years to three months. And when Jack gets out, the wealthy Cuban criminal wants him to stay in Cundo's multimillion dollar Venice Beach house—right across from the one where Cundo's common-law wife, professional psychic Dawn Navarro, resides. There will certainly be some payback expected, though Jack can't figure out what. Sexy Dawn's intentions are a lot clearer. But Cundo's coming home earlier than anticipated, and Jack smells a double-cross cooking—the kind that could turn a road dog into road kill.

Editorial Reviews

"Leonard is arguably up there with Hammett, Chandler, Ed McBain and James Ellroy as one of the most influential writers of American crime fiction of the 20th century.... Full of great characters.... It is all good fun and the reader is quickly caught up in Leonard's world.... Another gem of mixed morals and great dialogue." (Canberra Times)
