When Jake “Payday” Bechet hears that two men have been murdered a few miles from where he lives in the Hamptons – hanged from the Shinnecock Bridge, their hands severed – he knows that trouble is coming. Trouble for him, for everyone, because it means that someone has betrayed the Castello crime family. Whether it’s someone trying to move in on their drug operation or the cops making their own statement, he doesn’t know, but he wants to stay far away from it all. After all, years ago Bechet himself walked away from the Castellos with enough inside information to hold over their heads and to keep himself safe, then went underground. He doesn’t want to get anywhere near them now, but soon discovers that he can’t remain indifferent – first it seems one of his friends has gotten involved in the fringes of this battle, and then the larger picture becomes clear: Jorge Castello himself wants Bechet to find out who’s behind the killings, claiming there’s a traitor in the family. The last thing Bechet wants to do is work for the Castellos again, but he knows he has to find a way to finish it somehow. Between Bechet and Tommy Miller, a retired P.I. whose ex-girlfriend has also gotten too close to the Castellos and whose father was one of their casualties a few years back, all the loose ends will be tied up – one way or another – before the end of twenty-four hours. Once again Daniel Judson shines an unforgiving light on the darkest parts of the Hamptons and delivers a powerful, unforgettable read paced at breakneck speed.

From the Back Cover:

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...

“Intense ...a gripping thriller perfect for a stormy night’s entertainment.”—Publishers Weekly

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.

“The suspense builds relentlessly.”—Library Journal

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...

About the Author:

Daniel Judson’s three novels, including The Darkest Place, have all garnered Shamus Award nominations, and one Shamus prize. He attended Southampton College, and his time in the Hamptons (particularly the parts you don’t find in the society pages) was the inspiration for the setting and characters in The Water’s Edge. He now lives in Connecticut.
