In the world of small-time bookie Eddie Ryan, only the cop cars are black and white. Everything else swirls in a kind of gray soup. Overcome by greed, lust, and the survival instinct, Eddie takes part in a high-stakes heist, stepping into a morally treacherous world where no one can be trusted, and where life expectancy is short.
Set in the dim half-light of the Houston and New Orleans demimondes, THE TAKE is a fast-paced, nerve-jangling ride.
This book also comes with a preview of SETUP ON FRONT STREETt, the first entry in my Key West Nocturnes Series. The series is designed to lift the lid off Key West, revealing it as a true noir city, taking the reader behind the margaritas and the sunshine into the dark shadows and alleys where the tourists never go.
