Speak for the Dead : A Bragg Thriller
by Jack Lynch




Overview -
Desperate men with nothing to lose make one last demand. Get Peter Bragg.

SPEAK FOR THE DEAD

The Shamus Award-nominated fifth novel in Jack Lynch's Edgar-Award-nominated series of detective novels.

An escape attempt at San Quentin goes to hell, a guard is beaten into a coma, and the hard-core convicts retreat to a corner of the prison with their hostages, including two civilian women. It's a deadly stand-off...a bloody powder-keg ready to explode into a full-scale massacre. The cornered, desperate prisoners have one demand: they want private eye Peter Bragg to clear the ringleader's teenage brother of a murder charge in a small, northern California town. It's a high-stakes case with a brutal ticking clock, and it pits Bragg against cops, neo-Nazis and powerful enemies who would like to see him, the convicts, and the hostages all go down in a hail of flames and gunfire that would keep their secrets from ever being revealed.

"Bragg is authentic, gripping, gritty...what Lynch sells is well-written escape...slam-bang mystery that's fun to read" San Francisco Examiner

"This is a first-rate series," 101 Knights: A Survey of American Detective Fiction

"The books are damn good, featuring a hard but believable hero," The Thrilling Detective

(Originally published under the title "San Quentin")
