When private detective Sam Quinton sets out to solve the murders of a stripper and small-time gambler, he ends up in the middle of an organized crime war, testing Quinton’s loyalty to an old friend and making him the killers’ next target. While working to stay one step ahead of the killers, Quinton also has to safeguard the life of an elderly couple, who unwittingly hold the key to solving the murders and ending the war.

Lowlife Nicky LeBow made a habit of hiding out in strangers’ homes. No one noticed him until the day he entered the wrong house and found himself targeted by both cops and crooks. Sam Quinton, private investigator and former professional wrestler, didn’t care much about Nicky either, until the squatter ended up dead, and an elderly couple quietly living out their golden years became the killers’ next targets.

“This fast paced mystery is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing. Sam is a lovable tough guy and makes a great protagonist. It is believable that he gets himself into the situations that he does. Although he has a tough exterior, he fights for those who can’t fight for themselves. I enjoyed reading, not only the mystery, but also watching how Sam develops as a character. I can’t wait to see where the series goes next!” A Cozy Experience
