The tenth unforgettable novel in the legendary crime series
It’s a bitter, cold night in Atlanta. Ex-cop Jim Hardman walks in on a convenience robbery committed by a youmg woman and two men that leaves an innocent clerk dead. It’s an ugly experience Hardman can’t shake…and it gets worse when the parents of the female felon want to hire him to find their fugitive daughter before the cops do. Hardman wants nothing to do with the job. But his sometime partner Hump Evans is bored and short on cash… and takes the case. Soon Hump is pursued by a chain-wielding gang of racist bikers and mired in a seedy underworld of drugs, prostitution, and senseless violence that even the tough, ex-NFL player can’t handle alone…
This new edition includes an afterword by Mel Odom, the award-winning author of The Rover
A killer-for-hire retribution for a man murdered for uncovering small-town corruption...and justice for another man on death row, falsely convicted of raping and murdering a child.
Hardman and his buddy Hump, the ex-NFL star, get sucked into a scheme involving a hundred grand in stolen jewelry and two corpses...and counting. The 12th and final book in the series.
The Man, the "Black Godfather" of Atlanta, wants Hardman to find out who is killing his crew before a gang war erupts. The 11th book in the legendary series.
In the 10th novel in the series, Hardman refuses to help a couple find their daughter, a fugitive wanted for robbery and murder, but Hump takes the case, putting their partnership in jeopardy.
Tough, gritty and funny. The Hardman novels stack up against the best PI fiction. Ever.
Exceptional characterization, strong and vigorous prose, and a glimpse into a place and time that has long since disappeared.
Dennis may not have made literature of Hardman, but he damn sure touched on it more than a time or two.
