" SHOOTING DOCTOR JACK is a stylish and powerful novel that combines the elegant economy of Elmore Leonard with the narrative fireworks of Richard Price. Now in mass market for the first time
This is the story of three men. There's Fat Tommy Roselli, also known as Tommy Bagadonuts, whose flamboyant style and open heart belie his sharp eye for a quick deal.
Then there's Stoney, Fat Tommy's partner in a shady junk-yard business on Troutman Street, whose cynicism and brutality almost save him from his alcoholism.
Finally there's Tuco, their young, street-smart apprentice, whose bravado and cunning hide his innocence, his insecurity and his desperate desire to belong.
Three men on an inevitable collision course with violence, on "a one-way street that runs from nowhere to nowhere. A street of failures. Fall through the cracks of a better or kinder world, and you find yourself on Troutman Street." Three men in search of redemption and for each of them, there seems to be only one way out.
