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.
In their sixth adventure, Hardman and Hump step into the middle of a bar fight and stumbles into a deadly but lucrative job -- protecting a guy who is next-in-line for a massive inheritance from being murdered by professional assassins.
Ralph Dennis has mastered the genre and supplied top entertainment.
The Hardman series is one of the finest in the P.I. genre.
The Hardman books are by far the best of the men’s action-adventure series.
