Day Keene is the author many hardboiled crime novels including "Home Is The Sailor" published by Hard Case Crime.
An exiciting read which should be enjoyed by fans of the Hard Case Crime series. A young district attorney prosecutes a man who is found guilty of murder and executed by the state. This sets into motion a series of violent crimes, several possible suspects and a solution to the crimes that fits the evidence given the reader, but was still a surprise to me. Written in the style of a hardboiled detective novel.
