Description

Ex-con Dave "Mace" Mason's favor for an old friend could get him killedin this "fast-moving crime novel" from an award-winning author (Publishers Weekly).

When ex-con Dave "Mace" Mason is hired by Paulie Lacotta, an old acquaintance and high-rolling crime boss, to watch his ex-girlfriend, Angela, he knows there's more to the job than he's being told. Angela has fallen in love with one of Paulie's competitors, Tiny, and Paulie wants to know if she's the reason a big deal recently went south. But Mace draws some unwelcome attention as he investigates, and when Tiny is found dead, Mace wonders if he will live long enough to uncover the truth.

"Lochte is just as fast-paced and funny flying solo as when he's wingman for Al Roker or Christopher Darden, both of whom he's collaborated with in the past." —Kirkus Reviews

"Lochte is a somewhat underappreciated writer. This solid, well-crafted thriller with a likable protagonist and an engaging cast of supporting players should remind readers that he is a dependable storyteller in his own right." —Booklist

"Tense, fast-moving crime novel from Nero Wolfe Award–winner Lochte." —Publishers Weekly
