"Snitch World takes place in a San Francisco of menacing technology, where the old cons come up short and the crimes of the gritty night have morphed into slick capers pulled off by the glow of a smartphone. Klinger hangs out at the Hawse Hole, a sordid dive even by Tenderloin standards. All he really wants is enough cash to buy a cup of coffee, some cigarettes, a bug-free hotel room. The simple act of picking a carefully targeted mark's pocket initiates a series of events that get stranger and more dangerous by the moment. Jim Nisbet, with his characteristic humor and brilliant prose, creates a world where trust, and even cash, are the avatars of a loser's game. This is Snitch World, where a nine-dollar app can be as deadly as a dirty needle"--Page 4 of cover.

Is there some reason to read this book? Unless one is captivated with barfly conversation and dialog, this would probably not be for you - - certainly not recommended by this reader!
