Dirty Harry In The Dead Pool

What happens when you put criminal scum behind bars? You become famous, that’s what. TV people want sound bites for the evening news. Writers want your life story. And sleazoid creeps want you dead.

Being famous isn’t San Francisco Detective Harry Callahan’s style. He doesn’t appreciate being lumped in with a rock star, a film critic and a talk show host. Especially because those three are dead. They’re murdered celebrities whose names are in an underground betting pool called The Dead Pool. Now Harry’s found another well-known name on the list: his.
