"Literary crime fiction doesn't get any better than this." - Readers' Favorite
An artist is murdered. We know who did it. But why?
From award-winning author Harlin Hailey comes this ripped-from-the-headlines tale of desperation, depravity, and murder.
Darkly funny, this evocative, psychological hard-boiled whydunit captures the underground mood of those forgotten, and how far they'll go once they've lost it all. East of Lincoln is a poignant and unforgettable story of the dark heart of the American dream, and the enduring power of friendship. For fans of James Ellroy, L.A. noir, dirty-realism, Bret Easton Ellis, Charles Bukowski, John Fante, Raymond Chandler, and Joan Didion.
