Skilled storytelling, great narrator..."

Lots of movement and suspense, well-drawn characters (including one really impressive 'weasel' character who reminded me a bit of Angel on the old Rockford Files), a good sense of place (the Hamptons, though -- just a detail -- a few locales do get mispronounced, like Jobs-jahbs instead of Jobs-jobes Lane in Southampton.) Considerable international intrigue also blends into what starts as a local mystery. A thoroughly enjoyable 'read', and I can definitely see why Christopher Lane has so many narration credits -- he's truly wonderful. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312355165, Mass Market Paperback)

Two men have been hanged from the Shinnecock Bridge, their hands severed. Now Jake “Payday” Bechet knows that trouble is coming—for him, and for everyone in this otherwise idyllic Hamptons community…

Murder in Bechet’s town can only mean one thing: Someone has betrayed the Castello crime family. Whether it’s someone trying to move in on their operation or the cops making their own statement, he cannot say. All he knows is that he wants no part of it. Years ago, Bechet walked away from the Castellos with enough inside information to hold over their heads. To keep safe—and stay alive—he went underground. But today, the crime boss himself know just where to find him.

Jorge Castello makes Bechet an offer he can not refuse: If he can just do this one “favor” for the family, Bechet’s betrayal will be forgiven. Now, all Bechet must do is keep his friends close and his enemies closer as he tries to solve the Shinnecock Bridge murder case—before the end of twenty-four hours. Or else all bets are off…
