"Don Winslow's Neal Carey [series is] hands down one of my favorite series and it should be a must-read for every mystery fan. I'm envious of everyone who will have the opportunity to read these books for the first time, and thrilled to revisit them myself."—Jon Jordan,CrimeSpree Magazine

Carey is not your usual private eye. A graduate student at Columbia University, he grew up on the streets of New York, usually on the wrong side of the law. Then he met Joe Graham, a one-armed PI who introduced him to the Bank, an exclusive New England institution with a sideline in keeping its wealthy clients happy and out of trouble. The Bank wants Neal to put his skills to work in finding Allie Chase, the rebellious teenage daughter of a prominent senator, an assignment that takes Neal to London's underground punk scene, a violent netherworld where drugs run rampant and rage is the name of the game.
