Undone by twin tragedies, Leo Haggerty becomes obsessed with revenge
The neo-Nazis cruise past the synagogue on Yom Kippur, opening fire right after services end. In the name of hate, a rabbi is gunned down in front of his congregation. The killers are caught, but the driver jumps bail, and it takes hard-nosed bounty hunter Arnie Kendall to track him down. To help him bring in the mammoth thug, Kendall asks a favor of his best friend, private detective Leo Haggerty. Haggerty is supposed to be home with his girlfriend, Samantha, but in this line of work, the job comes first—and tragedy follows.
A hired psychopath breaks into Haggerty’s house, and brutally attacks Samantha. Soon after, Kendall is gunned down in the street. His life shattered, Haggerty responds the only way he knows how: He grits his teeth, cocks his gun, and goes in search of revenge.
A Fistful of Empty is the 5th book in the Leo Haggerty Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
