9780307475893: Thirteen Million Dollar Pop (Frank Behr)

Detective Frank Behr finds himself neck deep in white collar crime and facing off with cold-blooded killers more terrifying than anything he's faced before.
 
Bernard "Bernie Cool" Kolodnik is a hard-driving business mogul in the process of making a move into big-time Indiana politics, and it's Frank Behr's job to protect him. When a gunman takes a shot at Kolodnik, Frank does what he does best: saves Kolodnik's life. So why then was he taken off the detail? And why are the usually adept Indianapolis cops making no headway? To discover the truth, Behr navigates a labyrinthine landscape of hardened former Feds, crooked real estate developers, casino magnates, and power seekers feeding on the edge of a dangerous and deadly political scheme.

Review:

A Letter from Author David Levien

Frank Behr is a maverick. In 13 Million Dollar Pop, I wanted him to have the best reason in the world to try and curb that spirit, to walk the line and hold down a steady job--starting a new family. And then I wanted the circumstances of keeping that equilibrium to quickly become impossible for him. Every one of us, even those of us who don’t happen to be private investigators, face aspects of work and life that don’t jibe with how we want it to be. Behr’s struggle reflects that.

Of course most of us don’t come up against greedy businessman and power hungry players who are willing to stoop to all manner of crime and violence and even the use of malevolent professional killers to get what they want. That’s why Frank Behr is different than you and me. He wrestles with a strict inner code that is often at odds with the world around him, while trying to survive and overcome the animals he encounters in the streets, and if not set things right, then at least find the answers behind why it all happens.

I invite you to take the ride that is 13 Million Dollar Pop and decide for yourself how you’d do in Frank Behr’s shoes.
