When a friend asks Charles to help find his missing niece, the trail leads to an unsavory world of drug running and white supremacy.John Ridley, author of Everybody Smokes in Hell, is acclaimed for his gritty stories and brisk dialogue.


What the Critics Say

"Another excellent effort." (Library Journal)
"Ridley's terse, electric prose captures the subculture of modern-day rail riders, and the suspense level remains high throughout." (Publishers Weekly)
"Funny, sad, and pulsing with menace, the book entertains while simultaneously exploring race, materialism, and the very real subcultures that exist below the radar of mainstream America." (Booklist)
