About this title


The city holds many dark secrets. Lives begin and end on its streeets and in its alleys. It's no place for a man to find peace. No place for a man to find love.

Boyd's just a small town hood trying like hell to survive. But his tantalizing obsession with money keeps him held down, bound within the depths of the city's mysteries. Still, he's able to maintain balance, at least until Russ, the local crimeboss, gives Boyd a simple snatch-and-dash job. The job is no problem for Boyd, but when he catches a glimpse of the mysterious dark-haired Missy, his world begins to unravel.

As visions of Missy haunt his dreams, Boyd, along with his fun-loving pal Vaughn, rides the fast-track up the organizational ladder. He reluctantly follows Russ's enforcer, the sadistic Clark, on errands of violence and brutality. The cash is good, but Boyd has changed; money is no longer his only obsession.

As the nature of his crimes grows more severe, Boyd's inner turmoil grows too, threatening to smother him and destroy all that he's managed to hold onto. He'll find peace--one way or the other. Even if he has to kill for it...

About the Author:

Mike Lester was born in Houston, Texas and raised in Southern California, where he resides. This is his first work of fiction. He is currently working on his second book and putting the finishing touches on a screenplay scheduled to go into production later this year. He likes to paint, enjoys discussing films and books, loves a good steak, and is a decent bowler. Too much scotch and his eyebrows grow together.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
