Overview

When smoking-hot Mindy Eider walks into the office with a foreclosure notice directed to her elderly Uncle Gunnar, cynical debt man Phuoc Goldberg at first sees her as little more than the source of this month’s rent payment. But Phu soon learns that Uncle Gunnar’s problems run deeper and darker than the money he owes. The niece can’t find him, suspicious characters lurk everywhere, and a sleazy bank has alarming designs on the old man’s little house.

Beguiled by Mindy’s beauty and innocence—not to mention her breasts—Phu gets sucked further into playing detective with each passing unpaid hour, venturing from a small town near Wilmington, Delaware, to the snow-choked Pocono Mountains to dank mushroom farms closer to home. Before long he’s seeking much more than debt relief for Mindy’s wayward uncle. To everyone’s surprise, the debt man won’t end this fiasco looking for cash relief, but for cadavers.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
An “appealing debut thriller... Those with an interest in animal rights will be particularly enthralled.”
Library Journal
The book has “excellent imagery and pacing”...A “strong bet for thriller fans.”
Kirkus Reviews
“Fishman is a deft, fluent writer who’s great at turning out intricate action scenes, and he gives us appealing characters.... A hokey but entertaining thriller that’s more fun than a barrel of overgrown monkeys.’’
Suspense Magazine
A “magnificent job”...”This debut novel is a marriage of medical thriller, along the lines of Robin Cook, to fear on a scale you have never experienced, as typically brought to readers by Michael Crichton.”

Meet the Author

J.E. Fishman makes plans while God laughs. A former Doubleday editor and New York literary agent, he is author of the critically acclaimed thriller Primacy and a frequent contributor to The Nervous Breakdown literary website. Coming soon are The Dark Pool, a financial thriller, and a series of police procedurals so secret that if he told you about them too soon he’d have to kill you. What he can share: next up in the Phuoc Goldberg series comes Ruby Red Dead. He divides his time between Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and New York City.

    Sharp and interesting. A page-turner. Fishman's ability to bring you into the world of his characters is masterful.
    Mindy and Phuoc are so different and their worlds miles apart, but you start to follow their unlikely story and all the pieces fall into place.
