Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The much-loved comic thriller by the author of the Edgar Award-winning The Butchers Boy is now, by popular demand, back in print, featuring a new Introduction by bestselling author Carl Hiaasen.

When Leroy “Chinese” Gordon breaks into a professors lab at the University of Los Angeles, hes after some pharmaceutical cocaine, worth plenty of money. Instead, he finds the papers the professor has compiled for the CIA, which include a blueprint for throwing a large city into chaos. But how is the CIA to be persuaded to pay a suitable ransom, unless of course someone actually uses the plan to throw a large city into chaos—Los Angeles, for instance? Assigned to cope with the crisis and restore the peace, veteran agent Ben Porterfield steps onto the scene to remind us that the CIAs middle name is, after all, Intelligence. Enlivening the mix are Gordons beautiful girlfriend, Margaret, his temperamental cat, Dr. Henry Metzger, and Metzgers friend, an enormous half-wild dog with huge teeth.
