"The members of The Rod and Gun Club are extremely wealthy. More important, they are powerful. They are, simply, the elite - men whose words are law and whose laws are those by which the country runs. One does not say 'no' to the members of The Club, nor does one murder them. Until now. Faced with a situation beyond their ken - the shotgunned corpse of one of their number - they do the thing they do best: attempt to gain control of events. To accomplish that, The Club calls on Inspector Francis Xavier Flynn of the Boston Police Department, and even they cannot uncover all the information about his background. It is enough for them to know that he has friends in high places, and they think this makes him one of them. They could not be more wrong."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
