In this riotous caper from Edgar Award finalist David Gordon, the CIA, FBI, and nearly every level of organized crime collide with a singularly evil domestic terrorist and a reluctant bandit known by all as "Joe the Bouncer".
Joe Brody is just your average Dostoevsky-reading, Harvard-expelled strip-club bouncer who has a highly classified military history and whose best friend from Catholic school happens to be head mafioso Gio Caprisi. FBI agent Donna Zamora, the best shot in her class at Quantico, is a single mother stuck at a desk manning the hotline. Their storylines intersect over a tip from a cokehead that leads to a crackdown on Gio's strip joint in Queens and Joe's arrest - just one piece of a city-wide sweep aimed at flushing out anyone who might have a lead on the various terrorists whose photos are hanging on the wall under "Most Wanted". Outside the jailhouse, the fed and the bouncer lock eyes, as Gordon launches them both headlong into a nonstop plot that goes from back-road gun show intervention to high-stakes perfume heist and manages to touch everyone from the CIA to the Flushing Triads. Beneath it all lurks a sinister criminal mastermind whose manipulations could cause chaos on a massively violent scale.
For listeners who like a heavy dose of fun with their murder, this is crime fiction at its freshest, from a virtuoso of the "darkly comic, stylish literary thriller" (Associated Press).

- No Suspicion
Good read. Hard boiled with a hint of modern lit. American anti-hero — thrown in to a strange world of danger, glamor, and blood. Resolves well. Will make a summertime movie hit. Prolly the 1st of a series

Terrible Book, No Actual story
The author just beats the details to death and the storie never moves toward. I couldn’t finish the book it was so drawn out with pointless details. I will be returning this book. Just awful.
