A Vietnam vet and an innocent young woman get tangled up in a web of deadly deceit in this crime novel by “one of the finest masters of noir” (Ken Bruen).

Mattie has lived in Dip for nearly her whole life. As a waitress at the Dip Café, nothing escapes her eye. But then, not much of what goes on in Dip is worth noticing. That is, until a traveling salesman named Tucker Harris drifts into town.

When Mattie disappears just long enough for steamy night with Tucker, she assumes it’s a mere passing fling. But when two strangers arrive at the café asking questions about her on-again-off-again boyfriend Jedidiah, Mattie begins to realize that life isn’t going back to normal. Something decidedly strange is going on—something involving Jedediah, the illegal drug trade, and that salesman Tucker . . .
