About this title
Hoke Moseley has had enough. Tired of struggling against alimony payments, two teenage daughters, a very pregnant, very single partner, and a low paying job as a Miami homicide detective, Hoke moves to Singer Island and vows never step foot on the mainland again. But on the street, career criminal Troy Louden is hatching plans of his own with a gang including a disfigured hooker, a talentless artist, and a clueless retiree. But when his simple robbery results in ruthless and indiscriminate bloodshed, Hoke quickly remembers why he is a cop and hurls himself back into the world he meant to leave behind forever.
A masterly tale of both mid-life crisis and murder, Sideswipe is a page-turning thriller packed with laughs, loaded with suspense, and featuring one of the truly original detectives of all time.
There comes a time in every detective's life when he's had enough. Having a nervous breakdown, two daughters who want to quit high school, and a very pregnant, unmarried partner tells Hoke Mosley that the time has come. A move away from miami to a quieter life in hotel management seems like the perfect solution, that is until a psychopathic career criminal named Troy Louden comes to stay there, bringing along his makeshift gang. There's a little old man, a no-talent artist, and a terribly disfigured stripper all caught up in crime, and all pulling him back to the job he thought he'd left behind.
