Description

Cancel the wedding–the groom is dead.

When a tycoon’s son is murdered the night before his wedding, the enraged and grief- stricken father offers investigator Dan Reno (that’s Reno, as in no problemo) a life-changing bounty to find the killer. Reno, nearly broke, figures he’s finally landed in the right place at the right time. It’s a nice thought, but when a band of crooked cops get involved, Reno finds himself not only earning every penny of his paycheck, but also fighting for his life.

Who committed the murder, and why? And what of the dark sexual deviations that keep surfacing? Haunted by his murdered father and a violent, hard drinking past, Reno wants no more blood on his hands. But a man’s got to make a living, and backing off is not in his DNA. Traversing the snowy alpine winter in the Sierras and the lonely deserts of Nevada, Reno must revert to his old ways to survive. Because the fat bounty won’t do him much good if he’s dead…

    Lots of gore and violence, but it isn’t unwarranted violence. The good guys (Dan Reno and Cody Gibbons) just keep getting in the way of the bad guys fists and guns. Dan has accepted a job of investigating the death of his ex-wife’s niece’s fiancé, who is the son of one of the wealthiest men in The Northwest. Dan finds police corruption and mob connections are somehow involved in the murder. The question is: will Dan live to collect the other half of the $100,000 fee for finding the murderer? Fast paced and riveting story.

    Another private investigator with attitude. A fast moving plot with a weird cast of characters holds your interest until the very end. A good read if this is your bag!

    I enjoyed the book, but it was not unto the last third of the book before it held my interest to the point I was anxious to reach the end.

    A really good well written book. Dan Reno and his Police buddy see a lot of action taking down a criminal operation shielded ly the county sheriff. Sex, violence and profane language, what else would a hard boiled detective have?
