(From the publisher):
Carl Bigelow's mission in Peardale, Long Island, is simple: to kill Jake Winroy, a one-time hoodlum who is about to turn state's evidence against the Boss. But Winroy's death musn't look like a contract killing, otherwise the corrupt politicians who run the territory would have to stage a clean-up, and that would be bad for the Boss's business. Luckily Winroy has a weak spot: Mrs Winroy. Beautiful and bored with her drunken husband, she would do anything to ditch him and take up with a richer, younger man such as Baby Faced Bigelow. But first she has to put Jake out of the picture, permanently.
