Eddie Senta has a problem, in this hard-boiled, fast-paced novel of crime. His attractive second wife, a highly successful marketing research executive who hears her biological clock loudly ticking, wants a baby. She also wants Eddie to clean up his act. Their marriage is going bad.

Nothing's going great for Eddie, in fact. His stints as a firecracker word processor in the legitimate business world dull him, and the kick he once got running for the mob has turned into mere efficiency. Maybe it's a midlife crisis, like his wife's unsympathetic therapist says.

Uneasy with the feeling that his world is daily shrinking, Eddie seizes the opportunity, when it presents itself, to make an easy score and at the same time to help out a friend. While Eddie by no means needs the five grand he'll make on the deal, he longs for the thrill--and the reinvigoration of his stale fortyish self--that a quick, uncomplicated robbery might bring.

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.
