Author's fifth novel. A woman is in love with a man running scams and dodging cops in Key West, despite the fact that he betrayed her Mafia kingpin father ten years earlier. This copy signed and dated by Shames (perhaps it would be more accurate to say that this copy is squiggled and dated by Shames, since actually deciphering these marks would take a Rosetta Stone and two wizened scholars--even so, it's better than that insult-to-fans signature of James Ellroy's, which more closely resembles a dull two-year-old's spastic markings than anything written by a competent adult). Dust jacket bears two stickers, one promoting the publisher's book giveaway (first-time Shames readers could get a copy of 'Sunburn,' an earlier title), the other a "Signed by the Author" sticker (a good thing they told us, too, since any three-year-old wielding a Bic could have done this one, which is why I haven't removed the thing). Dust jacket by Mike Wepplo. Unread.
