In the bestselling tradition of Robert B. Parker and Elmore Leonard comes Mark Cohen’s second novel featuring Colorado private eye and former Marine Corps JAG Pepper Keane.
It doesn’t seem like a bad idea when Pepper Keane agrees to steal a champion bluetick coonhound from the leader of a sadistic biker gang. After all, the dog also belongs to the biker’s missing girlfriend, Karlynn Slade. And though Karlynn stole three hundred grand from him, she’s not entering the Witness Protection Program without the prized pooch. Karlynn’s attorney asks Pepper to keep an eye on her until the feds are ready to help her disappear. But when Pepper also accepts payment from the biker to “look” for Karlynn, things get a little tricky. Soon, Pepper loses Karlynn, the biker puts a price on his head, gangs in every direction are after him, and there’s still an unsolved murder that’s begging for his attention….
