"...winner of the Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Crime/Mystery book of 2005...

This book is, without question, exceptionally well written. Walter is a truly gifted writer who knows how to write dialogue and create truly original characters. This is a very clever, funny book involving two-bit criminals, very similar to what Elmore Leonard writes (but better, in my opinion)." amazon review

In the same genre as "Pulp Fiction." Dark, witty, brutal, funny, completely entertaining with a real ending and a moral lesson learned. JS

Really a great, kind of offbeat book. Making donuts, the mafia, witness protection, poker, the Carter/Reagan election. It was actually fun reading this book, even though some of the topics were serious (the main character is, after all, running from the mafia and has a contract out on him!). Plenty of twists and turns. A mystery with a quirky sense of humore. I highly recommend this enjoyable book!

Not a great mystery but the characters are interesting and after awhile one becomes interested in them. The story itself is pretty lame.
