In the wake of former secret agent Steadfast Hayne's death, four mourners - a Frenchwoman, a former homicide cop, a foreign legionnaire, and a spook - visit the graveside and become victims in a strange series of murders.
In "Twilight at Mac's Place," the quiet death of an aged spy triggers a desperate race to control his memoirs, which threaten to reveal Cold War secrets many would prefer stayed secrets. When the spy's estranged son receives the then dizzying sum of $100,000 for all rights to the work, he is properly dizzied. He is also smart enough to seek the help of veteran Cold Warriors McCorkle and Padillo, owners of a D.C. bar called Mac's Place that is both a capital landmark and a nest of intrigue.

About Ross Thomas
Ross Thomas is ranked as one of the very top thriller writers by his fellow authors, and his readers loudly agree. Two Edgar Awards, and other prizes, only complement the abundant praise that Thomas has received. Thomas died in 1995, and since then all but one of his twenty-five novels had gone out of print. This should never have happened to the man of whom "The New Yorker" has said "Very few...are as consistently entertaining...even fewer can match him for style and power." Minotaur is proud to remedy this situation by reissuing Thomas's novels. So start reading, and prepare to join Ross Thomas's legions of admiring fans.
