Description


Joe LaBrava is an ex–Secret Service agent who gets mixed up in a South Miami Beach scam involving a redneck former cop, a Cuban hit man who moonlights as a go-go dancer, and a onetime movie queen whose world is part make-believe, part deadly dangerous.

This is vintage Leonard: fast-moving, pitch-perfect, and utterly, authentically irresistible.
