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
Two gritty, fast-moving novels set in the world of basketball by legendary crime writer Ralph Dennis.
There's a killer stalking children in a small, North Carolina town...and the only one who can stop him is the local Sheriff, a man crippled physically and emotionally by a war that he's still fighting within himself. The haunting, powerful new thriller by Ralph Dennis, author of the legendary Hardman series of crime novels
The recently discovered, long-lost, 13th and final Hardman adventure sends the unlicensed PI to London to find a missing man...where he becomes embroiled in an ugly case of embezzlement and murder.
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.
