Is this a great cover or what?
Well, the book that goes with it is very good, too. I wouldn't expect anything less from Dennis Tafoya, whose third novel this is. The Poor Boy's Game is about a federal marshal named Frannie Mullen, from Philadelphia, and how a case she's working on in the Philly area dovetails with the escape of her brutal father from prison. It's a crime novel both exciting and evocative, and I talk about it in detail over at my usual spot, Criminal Element.
