From the No. 1 Bestselling series comes a new novella about greed, lust, sex, and deception.
When PI Jack "Keeper" Marconi is approached by a meek man by the name McNamee about a beautiful blue eyed, long blonde haired woman who took him not only for $9000 worth of charges on his credit card, but who claims to be pregnant with his child, Keeper can't help but feel suspicious. Is the woman running a small time prostitution ring that also specializes in credit card fraud and larceny? He agrees to take on the job of surveilling the would-be madame if only to get the man's money back. But what he discovers in the process of looking into this femme fatale who just happens to reside in Arbor Hill, one the of most dangerous neighborhoods in Albany, NY, is that not all prostitution rackets are what they appear to be. And what's worse, is how easily he himself can be lured into a spider's web of sex, cash, loneliness, and murder.
For fans of Michael Connelly, Charlie Huston, Robert B. Parker, Donald Westlake, and more, comes the latest quick hard-boiled and Albany noir read from New York Times and USA Today ITW Thriller and PWA Shamus Award winning author, Vincent Zandri.
