Summary
After becoming a legend when he killed the famous bank robber Emmet Long, U.S. Federal Marshal Carl Webster searches for the equally dangerous Jack Belmont, the son of an oil millionaire, who wants to INSERT Long as Public Enemy Number One.
Critique
Very different from his contemporary novels like Be Cool and Get Shorty but still written in his typical style with quirky but likeable characters and snappy dialogue. A fast, entertaining read. The author knows how to bring the 1920s and 1930s to life! Highly recommend.
