Gage & Griswell is a large law-firm with an even larger problem: $5.6 million has suddenly vanished from the coffers of its biggest client. And the finger of suspicion is pointing directly at G & G's maverick partner, Bert Kamin. He too has gone missing. Mack Malloy, fellow partner, ex-cop and struggling ex-drunk, is charged with finding both Bert and the money - quickly, discreetly and before questions are asked. But questions have already been asked: ones that lead Mack to a cold corpse, to Latin American bank accounts, to a tale of love, corruption and sexual ambivalence, and to Mack's own complex past.
'Worthy to be ranked with Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler.'
John Mortimer, The New York Times Book Review
'Extravagant with danger, sex and especially money - and full of surprises to the end.'
