Overview

December Boys: A Jay Porter Novel by Joe Clifford

Prison-for-profit scheme thrusts insurance investigator into his disturbing past—and extreme danger

Jay Porter, the newest employee at NorthEastern Insurance in New Hampshire, is investigating an accident claim when he learns the teenager behind the wheel was arrested for minor drug possession and sentenced to a hardcore behavioral modification center. At the county courthouse, Jay meets Nicki, a young college intern, who tips him off to a possible scandal—first-time juvenile offenders being shipped to private institutions for political kickbacks. He learns that long-time family nemeses, Adam and Michael Lombardi, may have a stake in the scheme. Is Jay's mission to help these kids a legitimate crusade? Or is his thirst for revenge driven by the guilt he feels over his own junkie brother's death? These questions conspire to tear apart tranquility and drive a wedge between Jay and his wife Jenny. With help from new friend Nicki, and a couple of old friends, Jay finds himself thrust back into a past he had hoped to leave behind, putting everything—and everyone he loves—at risk in pursuit of the truth.

"December Boys", written by the talent Joe Clifford, is everything you want in crime fiction. It's fast paced and never drags. The dialogue is so realistic, the description so vivid, you really feel you are a part of Jay Porter's world. You root for your hero from page one until the end -- then can't wait for the next book in the series to come out. I expect more great things from this amazing author.
