In the short story, the narrative form which pin-points the strangeness and ambiguity of life, lyricism must entirely conceal itself behind the hard outlines of the event...The short story is the most purely artistic form; it expresses the ultimate meaning of all artistic creation as mood.
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.
