Eddie Senta is in the middle of a midlife crisis. His wife’s biological clock is ticking and she wants a baby. She also wants him to start making some money. And his career as a word processor is going nowhere. Even his old gig as a runner for the mob holds no excitement for him anymore. Eddie feels trapped.
So when an old friend shows up with an opportunity to make an easy score with a quick robbery, he takes it. It’s more the thrill than anything that appeals to him. But the robbery’s a bust, and now he’s involved in a triple murder case with the FBI after him, a crazy killer under the federal witness protection on his ass, and two New York detectives and a Russian mobster not far behind. Eddie’s life just got interesting.

Interesting take on a middle aged gangster caught between the need to reform and a mid-life crisis. Good dialogue and enough realistic bad luck to make it believable. J.R. Locke Author of Possible Twenty, a Gangster Tale & Down and Out in Manhattan.
Charlie Stella is one of the best writers going in the crime fiction world, and this, his debut, is a perfect example of that. Outstanding characters (even the bit parts are memorable), great, GREAT, dialogue, and a story that twists and turns to a blast of a climax. Great stuff.
