More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Once there were two brothers. Home was not happy, and they were not close. Dan Bridger (Bridger) grew up to be an auto mechanic—and a professional thief. Seth, the good brother, became a parole officer. Seth is murdered in a cold-blooded shooting, but nobody's talking. Dan, never one to let injustices slide, heads to Seattle to learn more. What he uncovers is a gang of greedy cops operating behind the protection of their badges. VERDICT Spare prose and minimal embellishments make this excellent lone-wolf entry shine. If your readers clamor for Richard Stark's Parker novels, then Bridger is your new antihero to recommend. With vigilante action and a riveting lead, Hunt's book brings in the great elements of a Donald E. Westlake (aka Richard Stark) or Marcus Sakey (At the City's Edge) piece. Buy, read, and recommend highly.

    This awesome antihero noir stars a hard boiled thief obsessed with knowing who killed his good seed sibling and why

    In Seattle, Seth Bridger works as a probation and parole officer while going to law school at night. He visits his client single mom Natoya Carter to insure she remains clean as part of her parole. When he leaves her apartment, someone shoots him four times.

    Seth's lived in lover Elaine Ogilvie calls his estranged brother Dan the auto mechanic thief who resides in Baltimore to tell him his sibling was murdered. Though he had not spoken to Seth since their mom's funeral eight years ago, Bridger arrives in town to learn what happened. As he asks questions, SPD has filed the case as another gang killing while implying he should go back to Maryland. However, what fails to add up is why his brother's gun was left behind when his wallet and notebook weres taken. Bridger investigates as only a professional thief could.

    This awesome antihero noir stars a hard boiled thief (see Bridger) obsessed with knowing who killed his good seed sibling and why. The story line is fast-paced but it is Bridger whose kick-butt and takes no prisoners inquiry has gangbangers, Police and Thieves wanting to run him into Puget Sound.
