A hired killer on his final job; a burned-out detective whose wife is dying slowly and in agony; a young boy abandoned by his parents and living alone by his wits. Three people, solitary and disconnected from society. The detective is looking for the killer, Christian, though he doesnt know that. Christian is trying to find the man who stepped in and took down his target before he had the chance. And the boy, Jimmie, is having the killers dreams. While they never meet, they are inextricably linked, and as their stories unfold, all find the solace of community. In what is at one and the same time a coming-of age novel, a realistic crime novel and a novel of the contemporary Southwest, The Killer Is Dying is above all the story of three men of vastly different age and background, and of the shape their lives take against the unforgiving sunlight and sprawl of Americas fifth largest city, Phoenix.

'Sallis is a wonderful writer, dark, lyrical and compelling' - Andrew Taylor, THE SPECTATOR
