Read in January, 2012

Outside a lonely town a man lies dying alongside the highway.

Nearby is a motel with an unfriendly proprietor and a friendly wife. In the town we find, small town toughs and people with sad histories, looking for a buck. The women are mostly pretty faces and long legs, wearing red lipstick and tight dresses. In between drinks, they talk sad and long, about their bad choices. Most of them are lonely.

Everybody is looking to change their luck.

Along comes Lew Archer, driving down the highway, he sees a man, dying, alongside the highway, outside a lonely town.
