"You have a car, a gun and some nerve," she said."Right now I need all three." September, 1958.On vacation, LA County Deputy Sheriff Kevin Pulaski wasn't looking for anything more than a cup of coffee and a hot meal when he pulled into the lonely truck stop.But what he found was a beautiful and enigmatic young woman, a link to a decade-old multiple murder and a blood and fire-scarred road leading to a lost fortune in gangland money. Lisette Kingman, daughter of the late Chicago gunman, "Johnny 32" Kingman holds in her possession a cryptically marked guidebook to US Highway 66, possibly holding the secret to the location of the $250,000 war chest stolen by her father from his partners.Pursuing her is Mace Spanno, the last survivor of her father's gang, intent on reclaiming both the money and Lisette. In his undercover persona of an easy-going California hot rodder, Kevin Pulaski find himself swept up in a two thousand mile chase down the length of America's legendary Route 66.From the concrete canyons of the Chicago Loop to the desert wastes of the Mojave, Kevin's only allies are a hot '57 Chevy and a hotter Colt .45. In West on 66, author James Cobb has written a classic noir mystery in the tradition of Elmore Leonard, Raymond Chandler and Mickey Spillane.Climb onboard for an unforgettable ride on the Mother Road.
