Every man has his dark side...Spero Lucas confronts his own in the most explosive thriller yet from one of America's best-loved crime writers.
The job seems simple enough: retrieve the valuable painting--"The Double"--Grace Kinkaid's ex-boyfriend stole from her. It's the sort of thing Spero Lucas specializes in: finding what's missing, and doing it quietly. But Grace wants more. She wants Lucas to find the man who humiliated her--a violent career criminal with a small gang of brutal thugs at his beck and call.
Lucas is a man who knows how to get what he wants, whether it's a thief on the run--or a married woman. In the midst of a steamy, passionate love affair that he knows can't last, in pursuit of a dangerous man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants, Lucas is forced to decide what kind of man he is--and how far he'll go to get what he wants.

Womanizer, pot smoking loser
I couldn't finish it. Poor English, terrible slang, boring story. A pot head womanizer as a "good guy" just does't work for me.
Another gun killing woman screwing dribble. Where are the good authors who do not need to kill people or fantasize sex?
George Pelecanos has done it again. Spero Lucas, at his best-gritty, violent when needed, and lives he life he has chosen. Pelecanos is as good as it gets, and he'll take us on a great, long ride with Spero. Hang on, it will be a helluva ride!
