KIRKUS REVIEW

Ex-cop Marty Bond, now a house dick, who no longer has to worry about living (he has a growth in his gut) tries to shatter the box top illusions of his youngster who wants to wear a tin badge. In so doing, he faces a dangerous killer alone, lives long enough to learn that his cancer will not kill him, but the knowledge of what he has become gives him nothing to return to... Probably the' toughest talent since Raymond Chandler, this world of pimps and punks and hustlers has a rasping authenticity and a grim momentum.
