Abstract:

A stylish killer makes the mistake of befriending a god Though he doesn & rsquo;t know mink from sable, Sidney Holden is the most important employee at Aladdin Furs. He is a bumper, a well-dressed killer who collects the debts that cannot be paid, and Aladdin would be nothing without him. After all, fur is murder. As Cuban refugees flood the United States, the New York criminal class is rocked by the appearance of a Santer & iacute;a sect that hails a young girl as the newest incarnation of Chang & oacute;, their bloodthirsty thunder god. But after a routine hit, Holden finds the girl cowering under the kitchen table & mdash;a divine witness to a double murder. Unable to kill her, he takes her with him, sparking an all-out turf war so vicious that Holden will be happy to have any god on his side.
