When some drug dealers in Camden, New Jersey get blown away by a smooth operator whos impersonating a cop, the case falls to two bleary-eyed, wisecracking police vets. But before they can even begin, an FBI team swoops in, headed by bossy and humorless Roger Sorenson. He identifies the perp as James Sullivan, an attorney who dropped out of sight a few years ago and has been taking out criminals ever since. Police sergeant Stacey Smith inadvertently crosses paths with Sullivan when her undercover stint as a prostitute interferes with Sullivans attack on some militiamen at a casino. In bits and pieces, its revealed that Sullivans vigilantism stems from criminal activity of his former colleague Dennis O’Brien, whom Sullivan blames for the death of his wife. OBrien uses his law firm to launder dirty money and keeps a tank of deadly sharks that lends the title its literal dimension.

Born at Camborne, Cornwall, from childhood he "drank in the traditions of Methodism", as his daughter put it. fter a false start in medicine, he studied theology, and in 1863 entered the Wesleyan ministry.

It's a novel about a shoemaker, who was also a Methodist "class leader" and his experiences in caring for his "class" of neighbors. Here's a quote from the opening page:"My old friend Daniel Quorm—Brother Dan'el as he was always called—was the village shoemaker, the Methodist "Classleader," and the "Society-steward." As hard-headed as the rounded lapstone on which he hammered all day long, as sharp and quick as his shining awl, as obstinate in holding his own as his seasoned shoe-leather; yet, withal, Brother Dan'el had a heart so kind, so wise, so true, that like the hammer it only beat to do good, and like his awl and thread it was always trying to strengthen some pour soul that had got worn in the rough ways" We provide delivery tracking on US orders.

Random House 2004 0375505024 / 9780375505027 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Signed by Author
Signed by Author on Title Page. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Robert Reulands hard-edged yet elegant writing has drawn comparisonsto that of writers as far-flung as Chandler, Hemingway, and T. S. Eliot, but his voice is all his own. With Reuland delivers another fist-in-the-gut novel set inside the courtroom and on the darkened street corners of Brooklyn. Drawing on his experience as a homicide prosecutor, Reuland captures lives on the edge, men and women working and dying in a very real world that most of us never see, although it exists right under our noses.Semiautomatic follows Reulands acclaimed debut, Hollowpoint which introduced antihero Andrew Giobberti, a prosecutor reckoning with his daughters accidental death while investigating a murder case that hits far too close to home. Now, eighteen months later, we find Gio gun-shy, living a rote existence, working in the sleepily academic Appeals Bureau. Then an opportunity comes for personal and professional rebirth: a murder trial.

Gio vows to play this one by the book, yet the difficulty of doing that quickly becomes apparent. He is paired with prosecutor Laurel Ashfield, and the two establish an instant mutual dislike. A key witness disappears. The case detective is conspicuously unavailable. The district attorney himself seems to have far more interest in the trial than the mundane facts would seem to merit. And Gio learns that it was not by chance that he was picked for this case.Gio is swept into the seamy, seedy world of Brooklyn politics and prosecution, caught between decent lives and indecent corruption, between streets that are already too dangerous and a killer who will most certainly kill again. ; (Author Signed); 1 x 9.3 x 6.1 Inches; 256 pages; p; Signed by Author

New York St. Martin's Press 1997 0312155131 / 9780312155131 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book.Sallis' Lew Griffin mysteries, although not widely known, are revered by many for their combination of New Orleans atmosphere and existential toughness. Both those qualities are present in this intriguing but overly introspective spy novel. David is a former CIA hit man, trained as part of an elite corps during the height of the cold war. Long retired from the agency and slowly constructing a human identity for himself, he is abruptly called back into action to track a former cohort turned rogue. What transpires is an elaborate cat-and-mouse car chase, moving to and fro across the American landscape and concluding in New Orleans. The real action, though, is internal, as David drives and broods, contemplating the spy's cypherlike lot. Much of this material is interesting enough, but the delicate balance between story, character, and idea is never quite right, leaving the reader impressed by the ingredients but slightly disappointed in the dish itself. Still, any Sallis novel belongs in all but the smallest mystery collections. Bill Ott, Book review Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover.; 8.30 X 5.70 X 0.80 inches; 256 pages
