Re: RARA-AVIS: Nobody Runs Forever

On a side note, the term "wide boy" is used twice in this book. I'm very familiar with this term for criminals from Brit books, but this is the first I've seen it in a US book. Has this slang now become common usage in the US?

By the way, anyone know the derivation? Wide lapels, maybe?
