In this ingenious novel, a passionate journalist takes on his city's rampant corruption Mike Dolan is a widely read columnist, but he's intensely frustrated by his newspaper's attitude toward the truth. All the articles he's most keen to run-about a rich youth escaping punishment in a drunk-driving accident, a supremacist group called the Crusaders, or a pennant-winning baseball team found to be throwing games-are precisely the ones his editor wants to shelve, caring only to keep lucrative advertising relationships intact. Dolan finally has had enough, and borrows money from friends to launch a magazine of his own. Although he's now free to boldly speak truth to power and pursue his most important scoops, the move comes with grave consequences for his love life-and his life, period. As Dolan steps on toes and dodges fists, No Pockets in a Shroud showcases McCoy's fast-paced, suspenseful style. This ebook features an extended biography of Horace McCoy.
