Praise
"Noir-master Nisbet . . . slaps readers right in the face with this stream-of-consciousness rant by an alcoholic narrator who makes Clint Eastwood sound downright squeaky by comparison. . . . A grim, fiercely written entry."
From the Publisher
Editors Note The new noir tour de force by the riveting Jim Nisbet. What's a guy to do, when he lives under a bridge and has an unshakeable thirst for martinis? kill for cash. so goes the logic at the heart of Old and Cold, leading to a spree of hits that are sometimes perfectly executed, sometimes messy, set against the backdrop of San Francisco's beaches, bars, and murky darkened streets. told at breakneck speed in a bravura voice, this novel is Jim Nisbet's finest work yet, reminiscent of Jim Thompson at his best and Tarantino at his most irreverent. a tough and tender love letter to a city's underbelly, this is a shockingly funny tale of suspense that won't let you go.|
Editors Note 1 Possessing an unshakeable thirst for the good life in spite of the limitations of his Social Security checks, a homeless man pursues a dangerous life as a killer for hire. By the Pushcart Prize-nominated author of Windward Passage.
