A wily lady thief is groomed for mafia infamy in this "masterpiece of diabolical design" from the author of Deadman (The New York Times Book Review). Helen Sedlacek thought that when she stole millions from the mob, she'd be running for the rest of her life. So she's more than a little surprised when mob boss Humphrey DiEbola offers her a job. DiEbola claims that he's looking to retire. With an eye for ruthless talent, he wants to groom Helen for an executive position by putting her in charge of his illegal cigar factory and seeing what she can do. But when a poker game at DiEbola's home turns into a shooting gallery, all bets are suddenly off in the Detroit underworld. And police detective "Fang" Mulheisen has to figure out all the angles. Is Helen gaining ground for herself and her gun-happy boyfriend Joe Service? Or is someone else trying to take the entire city for themselves—leaving the competition dead in the streets? This gutsy entry in "one of the wildest and wittiest crime series going" reaffirms Jackson's place among the greats of thrilling police fiction (Publishers Weekly).
