ASK THE DICE’s description appears there. Thank you for your continued interest in my work.
ASK THE DICE synopsis:
Over the past two decades, Tommy Mack Zane has faithfully worked as a contract killer for Watson Ogg, the Washington, D.C. crime boss. Now middle age creeping up finds Tommy Mack edgy, jaded, and weary of his grisly trade. As he contemplates retirement, he is framed for the murder of Mr. Ogg’s niece. Desperate, Tommy Mack enlists the aid of his friends, the mercurial D. Noble and burly Esquire to do battle with Mr. Ogg and his mercenary “dark suits.” A new, better life filled with his passions for poetry and jazz drives Tommy Mack to the slambang climax where a few dark secrets about his past are unearthed.
Thanks for your note, Susan, and the add. Good to meet you here. Yes, I like Bill Pronzini's Nameless P.I. books. He blurbed my second P.I. book, THE BLUE CHEER, out last year (it's on the cover). It got a prety good library distribution, so maybe you'll run across it. I just finished BP's FEVER which I liked. That suprised me because I've been liking the early Nameless titles better. I read his stand alone THE CRIMES OF JORDAN WISE and liked it. I hope you'll like my P.I. books. The new one is PELHAM FELL HERE with a James Crumley blurb on the cover. Anyway, sorry to bend your ear like this. Best, Ed
