This is Charles Willeford’s second published novel. As such, it’s gritty and hard, full of down-and-outers, and with Willeford's wonderful noir prose. As the cover states, “He holed up with a helpless lush.”

As one review states:

“This is a psychological tale with a thriller's edge and a suggestion of criminality. The story centers on two seemingly blue-collared alcoholics attempting to find validity in lives that once promised and should mean and hold something more. As any good noir fiction, this is a story about an attempt to find a connection, with another like-minded individual, which comes close but ultimately fails. And of course, as any good noir fiction, it deals with a connection, which could have worked, if not for unfortunate and ill-fated timing.”

I hope you like it.
