Lou Malloy learns of his sister's death right before he is released from prison, having served 15 years for the theft of $15 million from an Indian casino. He wants two things: to keep the $15 million, which no one has been able to find, and to track down and punish whoever killed his sister.
Lou Malloy teams up with Hilary Kelly, a private investigator. In no time, Lou has found the hidden $15 million, recovered guns and ammunition hidden with the money, and murdered two low-level mobsters and fed them to the crocodiles. 
As the body count rises, the story grows more complex and his sister's death becomes more mysterious.  
"J. Frank James did a very nice job constructing a fast moving plot for Dead Money Run. It is intriguing and thrilling... Hold on to whatever it is that you're sitting on as you read this story, because James is about to take you on a wild ride." - Reviewed by Red City Review
 
"Dead Money Run is a hard-boiled thriller. It is a book of short chapters and almost unrelenting excitement as Lou and Hillary Kelly avoid cops, kill mobsters, and try to unravel the mystery of who killed Lou's sister and why." - Reviewed by Wally Wood at BookPleasures.com
 
"Fans of James Ellroy and Elmore Leonard are going to love James' ingenious capers, devious characters and wry humor. The entire book goes down like a strong yet smooth shot of bourbon." - Reviewed by BestThrillers.com

"Dead Money Run by J. Frank James is a pure adrenalin rush from the very beginning. Yes, it is very violent with some strong language, but filled with excitement that keeps the reader wanting to know what comes next." - Reviewed by Paul Johnson for Readers' Favorite

While in school, he worked for the Gainesville Sun as a reporter, photographer and plate maker and several of his news stories were picked up by the Associated Press. From there Jim attended law school, obtained a Doctorate of Law. While in Law School he was a member of the law review and published an article as a member there. It wasn’t until later in his life that Jim’s journalism skills came back around and he started writing books. There Jim will introduce you to his cast of characters that make up the Crime Bandit team. You will learn about Lou Malloy as he leads the team of Hilary Kelly, Crusher Barnes and the mysterious “Blue” as the fight their way through one intrigue after another.

Working in acrylics, his work is bold, fun and inspiring. His prints are limited editions on both paper and stretched canvas. To date, Jim has written ten novels under the pen name J. Frank James in honor of his Father who was killed in World War Two. Jim lives in Atlanta with his lovely wife, Lorraine, and their ninety-five pound boxer named Jake.

Review:

"The Bottom Line: A hard-boiled crime caper that grabs from the get-go and burns at a feverish pace until the very last page. Fans of James Ellroy and Elmore Leonard are going to love James' ingenious capers, devious characters and wry humor. The entire book goes down like a strong yet smooth shot of bourbon. Will Lou reclaim his money, or will he be lured into one last big score? And who killed his sister, anyhow? To James' credit, the answers will surprise you. This is one crime novel well-worth finishing." - Reviewed by BestThrillers.com

"Dead Money Run by J. Frank James is a pure adrenalin rush from the very beginning. Yes, it is very violent with some strong language, but filled with excitement that keeps the reader wanting to know what comes next... I've always liked hard core characters and Dead Money Run didn't let me down. I liked the ending and look forward to other adventures with Lou and Kelly." - Reviewed by Paul Johnson for Readers' Favorite

"J. Frank James did a very nice job constructing a fast moving plot for Dead Money Run. It is intriguing and thrilling. However, the reader should be prepared for a bit of gruesome violence. Yet, the violence doesn't override the mystery and suspense within the story. Hold on to whatever it is that you're sitting on as you read this story, because James is about to take you on a wild ride." - Reviewed by Red City Review
