Bootlegging was Milton and Yvonne Hamilton's ticket out of poverty, prison time, and plain bad luck. Now they've moved on - to a bigger, richer pool of clientele - right in their own respectable new middle-class backyard. And their growing friendship with seemingly-perfect couple Joyce and Odell Watson is proving golden in more ways than one. As Milton soon learns, Odell is hiding an outside family and dubious business dealings. It's the perfect recipe for a blackmail scheme that will help Milton hide his own dirty secrets - even from Yvonne....

It was a good book I guess, although I was looking forward to the Odell and Joyce story, book justed abruptly ended, could have kept going, I wanted Odell to get caught. I'm disappointed. Still a good listen I guess.

I had to start over so many times the narrator was horrible, it was so hard to finish. Sounded like she had a lot of spit in her mouth took me forever to finish because of her voice. she did a horrible impression of the men voices. I know this is fiction but nicole in all three books got away with too much. nobody would just not defend themselves against her.
