Convincing background, great characters and plotting, including, for me, the most unexpected twist since Hitchcock killed off Janet Leigh so early in 'Psycho'. Thoroughly recommended for all lovers of American hard-boiled thrillers.

'There is nothing as worthless as an old man', Sevilla said.
He took from his pocket his pistol and put it on the bed beside him.
