A book in two acts. Set in a typical Eastern suburb of Bullit Park where violence and suspense lurks just below the idyllic surface, The first half concerns Detective Elliot Nailles, a veteran police officer who is given the task of protecting a young state's witness and former ganster. However, the witness completely refuses to get out of bed, causing Nailles no end of grief and casting doubts on the true nature of the American dream. In the second half, disturbed neighbour Paul Hammer begins stalking the witness, and eventually kidnaps him. The story culminates in a epic and memorable chase through criss-crossing rows of cookie cutter houses exposing both the bland conformity and intense violence present in 1960's suburbia.Permalink
