Luck to Lose

( 2 )

Overview

Mickey Burns took pride in his dead-end job: It wasn't everybody who got to say they worked for the Queens District Attorney's Office. So what if it was a dead-end job. At least he got to work on his stand-up comedy routine. Unfortunately he had another hobby...gambling. And now he had to come up with 25,000 dollars to pay off his bookie.

More About This Book

Overview

Mickey Burns took pride in his dead-end job: It wasn't everybody who got to say they worked for the Queens District Attorney's Office. So what if it was a dead-end job. At least he got to work on his stand-up comedy routine. Unfortunately he had another hobby...gambling. And now he had to come up with 25,000 dollars to pay off his bookie. That was about as low as Mickey Burns could go, until his best friend was arrested for the murder of a cop.

Jack Moran, once a great cop and now hip deep in the bottle, asked Mickey for a favor, a favor he was willing to pay for. So what if it was illegal? Mickey could use the money to pay off his gambling debts. Mickey's investigation leads behind the shiny facade of a police shield to the seamy underbelly of law enforcement—a place where pay-offs and rip-offs are as much a part of the job as handcuffs and Miranda warnings. They soon find out how scarce friends become once they cross the thin blue line. Luck to Lose blurs the line between cops, prosecutors and criminals until the only thing that can be trusted is a man's word.

    Light,easy suspense with a sense of humor

    Luck to Lose was a fun summer read.Light action takes place in authentic N.Y. area settings and the best part is a protagonist with a great sense of humor who does not take himself too seriously
