Description
"A classic gangster novel, Saint Mudd is the haunting story of a dying columnist for a dying newspaper in a city wallowing in the Great Depression. St. Paul during the 1930s is home to gangsters like John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, and Ma Barker's boys thriving on a booming economy of prostitution, kidnapping, and robbery. Grover Mudd, the city's premier reporter, wants nothing more than to put them away forever. But in a city that has the best politicians and police money can buy, Mudd suspects his efforts will lead to a big fat zero. But even a seasoned pro like Grover Mudd, who is certainly no saint, can't get used to all the dead bodies. With the reluctant help of the F.B.I., and the conflicted loyalty of a beautiful blond, Mudd targets the sociopathic killers with his own brand of terror. It is a high-stakes, high-risk gamble for the soul of a city, and the odds keep piling up -- until Mudd finds out what unimaginable horrors human beings are capable of -- including himself. Grover Mudd could end up a saint -- or a corpse"--P. [4] of cover.
