Baker & Taylor
When his thirty-five-year-old daughter is kidnapped, former NYPD detective Eddie Dunne, suspecting the disappearance is related to his previous employment with a crime boss, finds the case complicated by his former partner's grisly murder.

Blackwell North Amer
Eddie Dunne's hands are swollen from fighting, his cell phone rings to the tune of "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling," and his spending money is in a metal box above his bathroom ceiling. Banished from the NYPD and retired from his job with the Russian mob, Eddie plays the ponies and baby-sits his six-year-old grandchild. Then, in the blink of an eye, his life is invaded when someone kidnaps his thirty-five-year-old daughter. Now he must risk everything to get her back.
Eddie knows Kate has been taken for something he's done. He knows the Russians are involved, and he knows where they live, how they work, and where their bodies are buried. But the cops and Feds will give Eddie more trouble than help, his tangled loyalties will cancel out, and the danger he faces is one he must attack head-on with his own two hands. Because for almost twenty years Eddie and his former NYPD partner cut a swath of law and disorder through New York, hopping back and forth from both sides of the law amid thievery, extortion, and violence on a scale ordinary citizens could never comprehend. Now he has to find out which of his misdeeds will lead him to his daughter - or to his death.
