Blurb: Enforcer Dave Pender blows a hit, no thanks to an unknown assailant. As a result, his boss returns the favor and puts out a hit on him. On the run, he ends up in a small city. There he meets the owner of Billy’s bar, who offers him a job as a bouncer and a place to stay in one of his rundown apartment buildings.
Believing he’s found a safe place to go to ground, Dave meets a young musician who needs his help.
Then the stranger who foiled his hit reappears and things take a strange twist that turns Dave’s world upside-down.
Review: (Awesome cover) Dave Pender is an enforcer for a mob. He is sent on a mission to take down an opposing mobs man and Dave is sure it’s more to it than that since the mod man’s wife and partner isn’t in on it. He is pretty sure there is some hanky panky going on there and the hit isn’t just a sing to the other mob but the wife also. As he is about to take out the man, something strange happens and he is stopped, forcing him to go on the run.
I loved this book! Though about halfway through I figured out what was going on with the stranger that kept appearing it was still very fun and twisty and the ending was really a surprise.
I love how this author makes his stories so mysterious and intriguing, yet sweet, and charming too. However, there is lots of action and hints of violence there is not any blood and gore etc.
So if you’re looking for a story that is fun to read, interesting and intriguing with some twists and turns, no real sex, and a very surprising ending this is for you.
