Wren Jones is a 15 year old runaway from the foster care system. She picked the wrong car to use the back seat to sleep in.
Fitch Henry Haut is a retired detective, widowed, and dying from cancer. While waiting for the meatloaf special in a Vancouver diner, Haut sees Jones fleeing from two men.
Angel and Cooder the two men, work for Valentina, a high-roller rip off artist. She sets up the sting, they steal the money. They were talking about their plans with the money when a young girl jumps out of the car’s back seat and runs.
The main overarching problem – the stolen money is Bamboo Union triad money and it’s not going to go well from here.
I’ve reviewed a few of Dietrich Kalteis‘ books: Under an Outlaw Moon, Cradle of the Deep, and Zero Avenue. This one just might be my favourite. Well recommended.
