Description
Information
Ex-con Jack Delaney was going straight ... until he met elegant ex-nun Lucy Nichols. Jack deals in dead bodies. Employed by his brother-in-law's funeral home, he's sent one Sunday to pick up the corpse of Amelita Sosa. On the way he learns that Amelita isn't dead. Nor is sexy, cigarette-smoking and very sophisticated Lucia quite the nun he took her for.

'Catching up with Mr Leonard is almost a full-time pleasure' - Observer

'What all his heroes have in common - the good, the bad and the ugly - is a gritty intelligence, disabused and self-knocking ... Everyone is authentic and interesting, including the monsters, and the monsters are only monstrous because that is how you make out on the street' - Sunday Telegraph

'Leonard writes dialogue like film ... unremittingly direct and precise, the action only as uncomplicated as it needs to be' - Financial Times
