Hardcase : a Joe Kurtz mystery

Once Joe Kurtz needed revenge, and revenge cost him eleven years in Attica prison. Now Kurtz needs a job, and the price is going to be higher. Out of touch, out of prison, and with only one friend in the world, Kurtz signs on with the Farinos, a Mob family who has a problem in its own backyard. The Farinos don't know it yet, but they have a bigger problem in Kurtz himself. Searching for a mob accountant gone missing, Kurtz starts rubbing the wrong people the wrong way for all the right reasons. Within forty-eight hours he's got two low-rent, high-impact killers on his trail, a beautiful, ruthless woman in his bed, a legendary hit man flying in from Denmark, and the wreckage of his past falling down around him. As Kurtz keeps pushing into the shadows of a chaotic underworld, he turns up killers, freaks, traitors, and madmen. And the final outcome will be the most devastating of all.

  • "Once Joe Kurtz needed revenge--and revenge cost him eleven years in Attica prison. Now Kurtz needs a job, and the price is going to be higher. Out of prison, out of touch, Kurtz signs on with the Byron Farino, Don of a Mob family whose son Kurtz had been protecting on the inside. Farino enlists Kurtz's help to track down the Family's missing accountant--a man with too much knowledge of Family business to have on the loose. But someone doesn't want the accountant found--and with enemies inside the Family vying for his throne, and turf warfare just around the corner, Farino needs an outsider like Kurtz to flush out who's really behind this latest affront. As the story twists and turns and the body count rises, Kurtz no longer knows who he can trust. Everyone seems to be after something, from the mob boss's sultry yet dangerous daughter, to a hit man named The Dane, an albino killer who is good with a knife, and a dwarf who is armed to the teeth and hell-bent on revenge. Kurtz has always been an ace investigator. Now he's about to discover that to get at the truth, sometimes you have to go after it--hard."@en
