The Long Legged Fly James Sallis
Part One of the Lew Griffin Series
There are those who vanish into the steaming New Orleans night - and it is part time Private Investigator, Repo-man and blues afficionado Lew Griffin's job to find them. A prisoner of the bottle, his past and his skin, Griffin knows every hidden corner of Hell...and is on intimate terms with the demons who dwell there. But the disapperence of a militant woman activist is about to set Griffin on a roller-coaster careening towards rock bottom - carrying the brilliant, tormented black P.I. ever closer to a nightmare that threatens to hit him where he lives..and more brutally than he ever imagined possible.
