Product Description

The new noir tour de force by the riveting Jim Nisbet.

What's a guy to do, when he lives under a bridge and has an unshakeable thirst for martinis? kill for cash. so goes the logic at the heart of Old and Cold, leading to a spree of hits that are sometimes perfectly executed, sometimes messy, set against the backdrop of San Francisco's beaches, bars, and murky darkened streets. told at breakneck speed in a bravura voice, this novel is Jim Nisbet's finest work yet, reminiscent of Jim Thompson at his best and Tarantino at his most irreverent. a tough and tender love letter to a city's underbelly, this is a shockingly funny tale of suspense that won't let you go.



Praise for the work of Jim Nisbet:

"Readers should be prepared for a flashy intellectual entry in the new geezer noir subgenre, in which a sinister barkeep almost traps our antihero with an open tab."--Publishers Weekly

"An unheralded masterpiece of the noir genre. Everyone who loves Noir should read this brilliant book." --James Ellroy

"Nobody has Nisbet's distinctive style, humor, and sheer craft … one of the finest masters of noir." --Ken Bruen

"Truly, hellishly gritty." --Los Angeles Times



Jim Nisbet is the author of twelve novels and five books of poetry. He has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize three times, shortlisted for the Hammett Prize, and published in ten languages. He lives in San Francisco, California.
