Criss Cross

Criss Cross by Tom Kakonis

It’s Christmas Eve in Grand Rapids and things are about to go ho-ho-horribly wrong.

It’s a bone-chilling winter in Grand Rapids. Ex-cop Mitch Morse is stuck in a dreary, dead-end job at a discount store so he can’t resist when a smoldering, sexy cashier Starla Hudek asks him to join a gang of down-to-their-last-chance killers and criminals ready to do whatever it takes to pull off the score of a lifetime on Christmas Eve.

It begins as an audacious armored car heist…but then things go ho-ho-horribly wrong, and the lust, greed, and scheming spirals out of control, the criss-crossing loyalties and betrayals tightening like a noose around Mitch’s neck in this unforgettable thriller.
