About this item
Like an unstoppable force of nature, private detective John Shaft is back with a vengeance. Ernest Tidyman's iconic detective returns in the first original Shaft novel in more than forty years, and he's as bad as ever. When the Godfather of crime in Harlem reaches out to Shaft for a favor, the hardboiled detective finds himself caught in a web of violence and murder. No one is safe as the bullets start to fly and the bodies start to drop, leaving Shaft with only two options: kill or be killed. From the writer of the award-winning graphic novel Shaft: A Complicated Man, comes the critically acclaimed return of the black private dick that's a sex machine with all the chicks. It's a two-fisted tale of revenge as Shaft cuts a bloody path through city, settling old scores and faces the demons of his past.
