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.
