Dark streets. Darker secrets. Jackson Steeg thought he’d finally put all that behind him. He was wrong. Jackson Steeg isn’t an NYPD homicide cop anymore, not since the bullet he took to the lung. But Steeg’s retirement is looking anything but relaxing. After months of death threats, his ex-wife’s new flame is beaten to death outside a chichi restaurant in the Meatpacking District. When Steeg starts pulling on strings, he discovers that his old pals on the force are strangely reluctant to investigate the murder. Meanwhile, Steeg’s Hell’s Kitchen roots prove impossible to escape when a ne’er-do-well childhood friend finds himself deep in debt to a vicious mobster. Steeg’s brother, Dave, wants to help, but the only language Dave knows is violence, and soon a mob war threatens to erupt. Now Steeg’s got two factions of New York’s nastiest characters aiming for his head. Worse, every thread keeps leading him exactly where he doesn’t want to go: his own family. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This selection of short stories centres primarily on the reactions of mostly ordinary people to their experiences when interacting with other human beings. The relationship between individuals can cover a wide range of feelings and behaviour and sometimes what evolves when people meet and interact is sad; but, on the other hand, human beings can and do nourish and sustain one another. We cannot really completely control our lives and we do what we do simply because the way we are made doesn't permit of anything other. We are always reacting in some fashion. Seldom do we allow the play of our behaviour to go unmolested by our wishes and demands. Life, as has already been recognised, is a stage and we are the players. These stories are about some of Life's players as imagined by the author.

Often typecast as a menacing figure, Peter Lorre achieved Hollywood fame first as a featured player and later as a character actor, trademarking his screen performances with a delicately strung balance between good and evil. His portrayal of the child murderer in Fritz Lang's masterpiece M (1931) catapulted him to international fame. Lang said of Lorre: "He gave one of the best performances in film history and certainly the best in his life." Today, the Hungarian-born actor is also recognized for his riveting performances in The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934), The Maltese Falcon (1941), and Casablanca (1942). Lorre arrived in America in 1934 expecting to shed his screen image as a villain. He even tried to lose his signature accent, but Hollywood repeatedly cast him as an outsider who hinted at things better left unknown. Seeking greater control over his career, Lorre established his own production company. His unofficial "graylisting" by the House Committee on Un-American Activities, however, left him with little work. He returned to Germany, where he co-authored, directed, and starred in the film Der Verlorene (The Lost One) in 1951. German audiences rejected Lorre's dark vision of their recent past, and the actor returned to America, wearily accepting roles that parodied his sinister movie personality.The first biography of this major actor, The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre draws upon more than three hundred interviews, including conversations with directors Fritz Lang, Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, John Huston, Frank Capra, and Rouben Mamoulian, who speak candidly about Lorre, both the man and the actor. Author Stephen D. Youngkin examines for the first time Lorre's pivotal relationship with German dramatist Bertolt Brecht, his experience as an émigré from Hitler's Germany, his battle with drug addiction, and his struggle with the choice between celebrity and intellectual respectability.Separating the enigmatic person from the persona long associated with one of classic Hollywood's most recognizable faces, The Lost One is the definitive account of a life triumphant and yet tragically riddled with many failed possibilities.
