Getaway Man, The

Performed by:
Phil Gigante

Eddie starts stealing cars long before he's old enough to get a license, driven by a force so compelling that he never questions, just obeys. After a series of false starts, interrupted by stays in juvenile institutions, he connects with two brothers, professional criminals who make Eddie one of their own. But, when their last job goes to hell—alarms blaring, and police sirens closing fast—Eddie stands his ground at the wheel....'The Getaway Man leaves them all in the dust.... As terse and as dark as a 12-bar blues, this is prime Vachss.' -Playboy'A swift, efficiently plotted story.... The Getaway Man is sure to keep more than a few ... souls up till dawn.' -The Plain Dealer
