The Fourth Book in Michael Stone's Streeter Series Pizzeria owner Alphonse Lucci is a pussycat who likes to pretend that he's as tough and deadly as the mobsters he romanticizes. But Streeter really is. So when a greedy, ruthless bad-ass tries to strong-arm Alphonse into selling his restaurant to nail down the last piece in a crooked land deal, Streeter steps in to protect the likeable old man...and gets sucked into a deadly scheme that could leave them both totally, and very gruesomely, dead.
About the Author
Michael Stone started his career as a newspaper reporter, working as a correspondent for The Dallas Morning News and winning awards for his investigative journalism, before becoming a private detective in Denver. He used that experience to powerful effect when he became a crime fiction novelist. Stone's blockbuster series of thrillers began with The Low End of Nowhere, which introduced bounty hunter Streeter, the tough-guy-with-a-tender-heart tracking down terrifying criminals on the streets of Denver. The smashing debut earned Stone praise from Robert B. Parker and other crime fiction legends...and snagged him a coveted Shamus Award nomination for best novel from the Private Eye Writers of America. The book was quickly followed by A Long Reach, Token of Remorse, and Totally Dead, each a uniquely-authentic and explosive mystery packed with the author's real-life experience. Stone's series of crime noir fiction is both darkly-funny and deeply-gritty...and rates as some of the most original and cutting edge work in the mystery genre.
