Eliot Nailles and Paul Hammer meet, presumably by chance, on Sunday at church in Bullet Park. Nailles is open, no secrets. Hammer is, dangerously for him, not what he seems. The third crucial character, Tony Nailles, is the one who holds the bag. How he got into it and how in the nick of time he appears to get out is the crux of this tale.

Are you a fan of Mad Men? This book, set in suburban 1960s New York, could run parallel to Don and Betty Draper. It’s dry, dark humor which gets more creepy as it goes on. It’s the story of two men, with the last names of Hammer and Nailles, with a climactic interaction at the end. The story of how in that time and place, a man’s duty and a man’s desires were at great odds. It’s a quick read, and I can’t remember anything else quite like it.
