Josephine Flannigan should be dead by now from an overdose, or a cop's bullet, or run down in some back alley. But, after a childhood in Hell's Kitchen and a lifetime on drugs, by 1950 she's finally cleaned up her act and gotten out of trouble, or so she thinks.
From the Publisher:
Entering the 1950s in the hopes that she has left her violent and drug-addicted past behind her, Josephine Flannigan takes a job helping a couple to find their missing daughter, a Barnard student who has disappeared into the subculture of heroin addiction, an assignment that forces Josephine to make a life-altering choice. By the author of Come Closer. Reprint. 35,000 first printing.
A grifter hoping for a fresh start gets suckered instead in this 1950s-era New York noir. Josephine "Joe" Flannigan is a former heroin addict living in Hell's Kitchen, barely supporting herself with petty crime. That's why she jumps at the $1,000 given her by a rich couple to find their daughter, a junkie who quit Barnard to live on the streets. The job forces Joe to revisit all the unpleasant haunts of her previous life of addiction, come to terms with her past, and finally, scramble desperately to clear her name when she discovers that her employers weren't quite what they represented themselves to be.


Kirkus Reviews
"Gran's third novel...[is] as original and compelling as her first two....A gripping mystery, but Gran's real success is in recreating 1950s New York--the petty cons, the taxi dancers, the dank hotel rooms--a mosaic of everything sad and ugly about addiction. Burroughs meets Hammett in this gritty, at times tragic, noir." (starred review) 01/01/2006

"'[A] grim but oddly elegiac tour of the good-old, bad-old days." - Marilyn Stasio 02/05/2006
