Roy Cady radzil sobie jak dotad doskonale. Uzbrojony w metalowa palke dwumetrowy brodacz, postrach niesolidnych dluzników w Nowym Orleanie, nie jest moze zbyt lubiany, ale na pewno skuteczny. Do czasu. Wiadomosc o toczacej go smiertelnej chorobie i zdradziecka pulapka, w jaka wpada podczas zdawac by sie moglo rutynowej roboty zmuszaja go do zerwania z dotychczasowym zyciem i podrózy, w której przyjdzie mu sie zmierzyc z duchami wlasnej przeszlosci. Rozpoczyna sie mordercza zabawa w kotka i myszke, prowadzaca przez najbardziej obskurne zakatki amerykanskiego poludnia, podejrzane speluny i zapuszczone motele, w których Cady oczekuje na spotkanie z tym, co nieuchronne. Czy uda mu sie ocalec? Czy ochroni dziewczyne, której zycie do czasu spotkania z nim bylo jednym wielkim pasmem rozczarowan? Czy znajdzie w sobie dosc sil, by pomimo choroby odkupic swoje dawne grzechy?

    Great writing and dialogue. A hard-boiled but sometimes sentimental thriller about a doomed criminal enforcer, double-crossed and at large in the southern US. A great bit of noir, and I can see how the author is the same guy who wrote 'True Detective'. Recommended!

  • By Jerold C on 6 January 2017

    Engaging crime novel by True Detective creator.

  • By joe on 22 August 2017

    I didn't particularly enjoy this. I like stories with redemption or the triumph of good over evil. This didn't have either.

    A good read

  • By N Bentley on 28 August 2017

    A modern noir with a nod to Hemingway's 'The Killers', (but that might be just me). Brutal and authentic but beautifully written. Loved it.

    If you loved between here and the yellow seam, this is even better!!

    Martin's Press 'Chaotic, grotesque, and chimerical, Duet For The Devil is a corpse-filled tidal wave of LSD-spiked Kool-Aid crashing down and washing away all fragile sensibilities.Although Chinese economic growth continues strong, and although China coped very well with the recent global crisis, the Chinese economy faces many challenges, including how to sustain growth, how to rebalance the economy towards more domestic consumption, how to accommodate rising wages, growing social and regional inequality, and how to reform financial and monetary policies.After the slate has been replaced bend the galvanized strip up over the bottom end of the slate to hold it in place, thus avoiding the use of nails where they will be exposed.Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public.The question explanations of this book primarily use the logical steps to let users easily memorize the methods of solving questions.We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully: any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.

    But for other, larger powers, Stenvik is about to become the meeting ground in a great war: one that will see a clash of the old gods versus the new White Christ.

    This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work.As Wilder writes, 'Before the message, the vision: before the sermon, the hymn: before the prose, the poem.Liz Lyons, the three hundred pound transvestite comedian can't seem to get good room service.She has engaged the services of an outland Champion, Ki'shto'ba Huge-Head, to fight this terrifying entity, which has descended on them from the skies, murdered one of the fortress's citizens, and abducted another.
