A powerful and violent crime fiction novel from an iconic author and “one of the major names in science fiction” (The New York Times).
Nick Banning was a man drowning in a land of far-off horizons, a land that had all the vigor sucked out of it ages ago by the Arizona sun.
But it wasn’t the blasting heat of southwestern desert that bothered Nick—it was the heat of his own emotions, his desire for Sherry, the woman who had told him no.
But Nick was winding up, faster and faster. He meant to have Sherry—or else.
“[A] pomegranate writer: popping with seeds—full of ideas.” —Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 421
