About this Book

Print Excerpt


I looked down and mumbled something that could have gone either way. As we passed by, the patrolman pointed at his uniform and asked Harry, "How do I get out of this as fast as Ryder did?"

"Be damned good or damned crazy," Harry called over his shoulder.

"Which one's Ryder?" the young cop asked. "Good or crazy?"

"Damned if he ain't a little of both," Harry yelled. Then to me, "Hurry."
