New in Trade Paperback-Cat Chaser, Mr Majestyk, Gold Coast and The Hunted

Cat Chaser

The last time Florida motel owner George Moran was in the Dominican Republic he was in a uniform and people were shooting at him. Years later he’s back looking for a girl he lost—and finding one he’d be better off without. But that doesn’t matter to George while he’s sleeping with beautiful Mary DeBoya—only when he discovers his lover is the wife of a former death squad general in exile with solid mob connections. Now George is bringing big trouble back with him to the Sunshine State—as his nostalgic trip down memory lane has tangled him up in a cat’s cradle of drug deals, swindles, vengeance, and murder . . . and a love that’s not only blind but lethal.

The Hunted

Al Rosen was doing just fine, hiding out in Israel—until he decided to play Good Samaritan and rescue some elderly tourists from a hotel fire. Now his picture’s been carried in the stateside press, and the guys he’s been hiding from know exactly where he is. And they’re coming to get him—crooked lawyers, men with guns and money, and assorted members of the Detroit mob who are harboring a serious grudge. Playtime is officially over. Rosen’s a million miles from home with a bull’s-eye on his back, and his only ally is a U.S. embassy marine who’s been looking for a war . . . and who’s damn well found one.

Mr Majestyk

Vincent Majestyk saw too much death in the jungles of Southeast Asia. All he wants to do now is farm his melons and forget. But peace can be an elusive commodity, even in the Arizona hinterlands—and especially when the local mob is calling all the shots. And one quiet, proud man’s refusal to be strong-armed by a powerful hood is about to start a violent chain reaction that will leave Mr. Majestyk ruined, in shackles, and without a friend in the world—except for one tough and beautiful woman. But his tormentors never realized something about their mark: this is not his first war. Vince Majestyk knows more than they’ll ever know about survival . . . and everything about revenge.

Gold Coast

When he died, Florida mob boss Frank DiCilia left his gorgeous widow, Karen, everything, but with strings attached. If she ever gets involved with another man, she loses the millions, the cars, and the palatial Gold Coast mansion. A crazy cowboy-wannabe thug named Roland, who’s acting as Frank’s eyes beyond the grave, is making sure Karen doesn’t dally, with serious muscle if necessary. But now Cal Maguire’s come into the picture. A sexy, street-smart Detroit ex-con, Cal’s got a line and a scam for every occasion. And he’s got the perfect plan for getting Karen DiCilia her money and her freedom . . . if it doesn’t get them both killed first.
