And Other Stories
A collection of stories by

Hot Night in the City is a masterwork from Trevanian, whose unique ability to create a new "voice" for each genre he visits has produced the international bestsellers The Main, The Eiger Sanction, and Shibumi, which have earned him hundreds of thousands of ardent fans worldwide.

Hot Night in the City offers a feast for every taste: action, romance, laughter, love, wit, compassion...and above all, sheer entertainment. Meet a parade of unforgettable characters in compelling situations: a bewitching young madman charms his trusting victim; two women engage in a battle of wits; a crusty old carnival huckster instructs his adolescent apprentice; an ancient Native American strives to unite his people; a famous writer learns an unpalatable truth about himself; a boy struggles to rid himself of a stifling love: a young couple find one another through a hilarious pattern of coincidences, and more. Carrying the reader from the streets of big-city America to Paris, the Holy Lands, mythic Britain, the Basque country, modern London, and the primitive North American heartland, Hot Night in the City is nothing less than a tour de force.
