From the acclaimed modern master of noir - a huge, electrifying, explosive new novel.
Dallas, November 22nd, 1963. Wayne Tedrow Jr has arrived to kill a man. The fee is $6,000. He finds himself instead in the middle of the cover-up following JFK's assassination. There follows a hellish five-year ride through the sordid underbelly of public policy via Las Vegas, Howard Hughes, Vietnam, CIA dope dealing, Cuba, sleazy showbiz, racism, and the Klan.
This is the 1960s under Elroy's blistering lens, the icons of the era mingled with cops, killers, hoods, and provocateurs. 'The Cold Six Thousand' is historical confluence as American nightmare. Fierce, epic fiction. A masterpiece.
