John Dufresne - I Don't Like Where This is Going

Signed First Edition

“If Raymond Chandler were reincarnated as a novelist in south Florida, he couldn’t nail it any better than John Dufresne.”—Carl Hiaasen

I Don’t Like Where This Is Going continues the misadventures of therapist-on-the-run Wylie “Coyote” Melville. Wylie has witnessed a woman fall to her death outside the Luxor Hotel. Troubled by the ensuing cover-up, he becomes a man on a mission, enlisting the help of his old friend, an ace card player and master magician, to help find answers. We follow the duo’s escapades from poker tables to desert highways, in a thoroughly satisfying whodunit. From the natural heir to Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen, I Don’t Like Where This Is Going is a comic crime noir as thrilling and darkly wry as Vegas itself.


We are devoted to all things mysterious, from hard-boiled hardcovers to pulpy paperbacks, suspected signings and whispers around town.
