Working for the Man – Coming in March

Working for the Man – Coming in March by Ralph Dennis

The seventh novel in the legendary Hardman series.

It’s Atlanta, 1974. Ex-cop Jim Hardman and ex-NFL player Hump Evans do odd jobs. Anything that pays. As long as its not kidnapping, robbery, or murder.  Not that they are afraid of killing…if that’s what it takes to survive one of their odd jobs. And this time it will. 

An old, professional gambler who once saved Hardman’s neck has been working as an accountant for The Man, the city’s black Godfather. When the gambler is killed, and The Man’s coded ledger disappears, Hardman and Hump are hired to get the book…and settle the score.  

This new edition includes an Afterword from Hank Wagner, co-author of the book Thrillers: 100 Must Reads.
