Item description for Squeeze Play by Jason Starr James McKimmey...

Grief-stricken by the loss of their young son, Jack Wade and his wife Binny look for solace where they can. Other partners, work, liquor and the casinos of beautiful Lake Tahoe.... "And he was certain, because he could feel it in the pit of his stomach, that they were going to make it. Not a million bucks. Leave that to the fiction writers. But a cool one hundred G's, maybe. That was the kind of money it took the average guy ten to twenty years of hard labor to earn. They could get it in hours." It was the perfect con. An inside job, carefully planned. Pick a target and roll the dice. What could go wrong? Jack and Binny are about to find out. SQUEEZE PLAY is a classic noir thriller by one of the hidden masters of the genre.

Reviews - What do customers think about Squeeze Play?

Hopefully Not the Last McKimmey Reprint  Jan 11, 2006
Originally written in 1962 and recently reissued by Point Blank Press, James McKimmey's Squeeze Play still has what it takes to be considered a top-notch, hardboiled book by today's standards. Main character, Jack Wade, has problems: he has recently suffered a great personal loss, his wife has both a drinking and a gambling addiction, his bank account is all but wiped out, and he has been passed over for a better job at work and now has to contend with a "higher-up" who is out to get him.

The book begins as Wade awakens in an unfamiliar motel room in a state of confusion. He vaguely remembers being with his boss's secretary, Elaine, the night before, but she has disappeared, and Wade has "lost" 12 hours of his life. His car is parked outside, and as he makes his way home, he hears a radio report that he is being sought in connection with a murder. At that point, the book reverts to the beginning of the story, explaining events leading up to the present.

McKimmey's plot is rife with twists and turns. His characters are both fleshed out and believeable. I only hope Point Blank Press chooses to publish more of these wonderful James McKimmey classics.
