Aces and Eights
by Philip Garlington
From the hard copy blurb: "Aces and Eights is a novel about a world in which the only morality is force, and the only heroes those strong enough to pummel their way through the chaos." Sounds good. "Two ex-Nam buddies now San Francisco cops and part of an anti-terror unit, are looking for underworld connections to smuggle prime Chinese heroin. Buoyant, mean, funny, tough, anarchistic."
