30th Anniversary Edition with a new introduction by the author
“One of America’s greatest storytellers.”―Stephen King
Neal Carey is not your usual private eye. A graduate student at Columbia University, he grew up on the streets of New York, usually on the wrong side of the law. Then he met a PI who introduced him to the Bank, an exclusive institution with a sideline in keeping its wealthy clients happy and out of trouble. They pay Neal’s college tuition, and Neal gets an education that can’t be found in any textbook, from learning how to trail a suspect to mastering the proper way to search a room.
Now it’s payback time. The Bank wants Neal to put his skills to work in finding Allie Chase, the rebellious teenage daughter of a prominent senator. The problem is that she’s gone underground in the London punk scene. To get her back, Neal has to follow her into a violent netherworld where drugs run rampant and rage is the name of the game.
Pretty good action
It's a good fast read. There are parts where you will be speed-reading just to get through the long detailed, kind of boring explanations. Maybe 30-40 pages like that. Otherwise well done an worth the time. Not sure if I'll follow the series.
