This new affair must be a golden vessel, filled with the purest distillation of the actual; and oh how it worries me, the shaping of the vase, the hammering of the metal! I have to hammer it so fine, so smooth . . . And all the while I have to be so careful not to let a drop of the liquor escape!
King of the Streets
The third novel in the Sam Turner series.
This is an adroit and thoughtful thriller, well worth a read. Pete Whittaker, Tribune.
