Dick Braun is a deputy sheriff in an affluent Ohio township, fed up with his job and wife and trying to hang on to his hot girlfriend, a wannabe screenwriter who talks in movie titles and can’t decide between love and greed.

Overview

Dick Braun is a deputy sheriff in an affluent Ohio township, fed up with his job and wife and trying to hang on to his hot girlfriend, a wannabe screenwriter who talks in movie titles and can’t decide between love and greed. Desperate, Dick comes up with a plan to steal eight million dollars from an armored car and with the money and lady fly out of the country.

He calls on an ex-army buddy, a former gang banger in the LA barrio who comes out with his cousin to help. They get the cash but there’s a double cross, the money’s on the loose and Dick goes scrambling after it.

Mixed up in a tangle of lies and betrayal are two former Navy seals, a Merrill Lynch broker, a bent Mexican cop, a rogue banker, a Brazilian woman to die for, government types and people out to kill.

Hey, it’s eight million dollars.

Tough and tight, the story winds its way down to an unexpected finale.

Marilyn Meredith
Bordering on noir with touches of humor, Easy Money by Norm Maher has it all: colorful, unique characters, snappy dialogue, unusual crime, sex, plenty of action, colorful settings, and a twisted surprise ending. Highly recommended. (Marilyn Meredith, Author of the Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery series)

Not worth the effort to turn the pages. No one in this book is the least bit worthy of my time or interest.

One of the few books in my lifetime I have had to force myself to finish.

I only gave it one star because I couldn't give it -1 star. Not that I'm a prude, but the language was ridiculous and the sex was terrible. Not to mention the horrible representation of the Latin American community.  Any positive reviews of this book must have been paid for or submitted by family members of the author.

Fast, fun, and chock-full of quirky characters who fall all over each other racing to an unexpected finish.
