Be nice. Nice is good. Nice sets a standard. Then, when you get mean, the shock is strongest.

Montgomery “Monty” Haaviko has done the crimes and has lived the criminal lifestyle. His trade secrets——could fill a book. Now all he wants to do is settle down with his wife and baby and work on building a straight life. But for a man who’s never held down a legitimate job and who faces the daily temptation of returning to his past, it isn’t going to be easy. When Monty foils a robbery in his new home, killing the intruders, he quickly finds there are those who don’t want him ever to forget what he once was. Detective Sergeant Enzio Walsh knows all about Monty’s history and is determined to use it to put Monty away for murder.

A couple of drops of Krazy Glue on the tips of your fingers eliminate fingerprints

Not since Jack Reacher has there been such a quick-thinking, hard-edged anti-hero whom readers will root for against all odds. Monty imparts his hard-earned criminal knowledge via sharp asides straight out of the hit show Burn Notice or the bestselling Beat the Reaper, because he knows it's going to take all of the tricks he has to prove his innocence, protect his family and avoid the allure of the life he left behind.

A dying man can do a lot of damage.
