The sequel to Don't Ever Get Old, which garnered four
starred reviews, a movie deal with a major Hollywood producer, and an
Edgar Award nomination for Best First Novel
Twentysomething Daniel Friedman's debut hit novel, Don't
Ever Get Old, was a huge
critical and word-of-mouth success. Now his unforgettable protagonist Buck
Schatz is back, and once again this eighty-eight-year-old retired Memphis cop
refuses to go gently into that good night. Having sustained injuries in Don't
Ever Get Old, Buck is
living at a retirement home with his wife, and he's downright miserable being
treated like the elderly person he is. But soon, Elijah, a man from his past,
pays Buck a visit. Elijah offers Buck a tidy sum to do him a favor, and Buck is
eager to close the book on a series of robberies that he could never solve. But things soon go downhill—way downhill.
Written in Buck's signature voice and featuring a mystery that
will knock your socks off, Don't Ever Look Back is another home run by
an author with a long and star-studded career ahead of him.
