Publisher's Summary

Once part of the holy triumvirate ruling the South Boston Irish Mob, Kyle Nevin is set up with the Feds by head mobster Red Mahoney, who leads him to a court case and a stretch in the slammer. Now out of prison, Kyle wants revenge on his old boss and mentor and, just as importantly, to reclaim his former glory. A kidnapping gone wrong leads, bizarrely, to a major book deal and a newfound celebrity status for Kyle. However, it also brings about bigger problems for both himself and anyone unlucky enough to cross his path. With this dark riff and contemporary theme, Zeltserman shows why he is the heir of Jim Thompson and James M. Cain.

Critic Reviews

"Darkly enjoyable…a page-turner." (The Boston Globe)
"A doozy of a crime-laden crime story….If there's any other young writer out there who does crime noir better than Zeltserman, I don't even want to know.” (The Washington Post)
