That was before the dirty bomb hit Times Square, before his wife was killed, and before the city became a blown-out shell of its former self.Now hes a hitman.In a near-future New York City split between those who are wealthy enough to tap in to a sophisticated virtual reality, and those who are left to fend for themselves in the ravaged streets, Spademan chose the streets.

His new job is not that different from his old one: waste disposal is waste disposal. He doesnt ask questions, he works quickly, and hes handy with a box cutter. But when his latest client hires him to kill the daughter of a powerful evangelist, his unadorned life is upended: his mark has a shocking secret and his client has a sordid agenda far beyond a simple kill. Spademan must navigate between these two worlds--the wasteland reality and the slick fantasy--to finish his job, clear his conscience, and make sure hes not the one who winds up in the ground.Adam Sternbergh has written a dynamite debut: gritty, violent, funny, riveting, tender, and brilliant.From the Hardcover edition.
