Editorial Reviews for this title:
When Nicole Bass, a brilliant, Ivy League-educated former model turned call-girl, witnesses a murder and narrowly escapes being the next victim, New York City detective Jack Kirby is saddled with babysitting a witness who is running from the Mob. But with plans--as well as secrets--of her own, Nicole isn't about to sit tight, leaving Jack with a walking target to protect.
Three fascinating, fully fleshed central characters make James Elliott's new thriller take off and fly. Jack Kirby is a New York cop assigned to guard the memorable body of high-priced call girl Nicole Bass after she watches a cold-eyed, dapper mob boss named Vincent Genero take some very nasty revenge on a crooked accountant. Kirby is a believably flawed cop, attracted to the equally credible Nicole, and Genero--who starts out as a John Gotti clone--quickly becomes one of the best-drawn fictional mobsters since The Godfather. Elliott, as he proved in his excellent first thriller ( Cold, Cold Heart, available in paperback), also knows how to create action scenes that grab you by the buttons and don't let go.
