Dave Zeltserman crafts a classic noir, providing rock solid proof of what the hard-boiled genre can offer. The narrator is a crooked cop just out of the pen (not for good behavior) who's got a past as relentless as his own sense of retribution. Zeltserman laces his tautly twisted mystery with an dark and inauspicious sense of humor that's irresistible. (from the first line)
|Page-turning noir from Boston-based Dave Zeltserman--The Sopranos meets Cop Land.|
From the Publisher:
Bent copper Joe Denton gets out of prison suspiciously early after disfiguring a fellow cop. Nobody wants Joe to hang around, not his ex-wife, his parents or his former colleagues - if he had any decency he'd get out of town and start over. Unfortunately, Joe has precious little decency - and a whole lot of unfinished business to attend to.Out of prison, corrupt police officer Joe Denton finds himself shunned by both his family and former colleagues, and becomes involved with local mafia boss Manny Vassey.
"If Zeltserman keeps writing novels as terrific as SMALL CRIMES, and if the economy keeps nosediving, he may churn out a corpus that rivals [James M.] Cain's. Oh, and SMALL CRIMES is a paperback original, so fans don't even have to shell out the big bucks they no longer have for this piece of crime-noir genius." - Maureen Corrigan 11/16/2008
