by Ennis Willie


His name is Sand . . .


Bounding out of a violent past comes SAND . . . So begins SAND’S WAR about the toughest guy around, Sand. Just Sand. Written in 1963 by the enigmatic Ennis Willie, he thrust Sand on an innocent and cruel world and God help the world. 

Max Allan Collins, who knows his way around a violent novel or two, introduces SAND'S WAR and gives you ample warning about what you are in for, but it's doubtful you'll heed him. Sand is just too compelling, and by the time you have a toe dipped into the raging torrent of Sand's life you'll be sucked in for a ride you just might never recover from — until the next Sand Shocker from Ennis Willie and Ramble House. 

“Some of the toughest, smoothest hardboiled novels . . . Miniature masterpieces with an ambience all their own. Part Spillane, part spaghetti western — all Ennis Willie.”  — Ed Gorman
