When Dan's deadbeat father Ben Reles, a Mafia legbreaker who's spent the last 20 years on the run, shows up on Dan's doorstep with an escaped prostitute in tow, trouble is sure to follow.
That trouble is Sam Zelig, a sociopathic godfather with limitless resources and boundless rage. In several diabolical strokes, he now holds Austin hostage, forcing Dan to choose between the town he's sworn to protect, his new family, and his father. In the process he faces trial by fire, bullet, bridge embankment, and one very angry woodchipper.
Sure to satisfy Simon's core devotees as well as fans of Dennis Lehane and James Ellroy, Last Jew Standing is fast-paced and suspenseful from start to finish.
