Boniface

Free sample

The first Boniface knows about the dead body in the next room is when he is arrested for murder.

The lack of evidence against Boniface doesn't seem to concern the police—they are sure they have the right man—they just need to prove his guilt, and while they do, Boniface is bailed allowing him to return to work with his client.

His client, a shipping company, couldn't care less that Boniface is distracted. The client has its own problems: News is about to break that one of its ships dumped toxic waste in East Africa, leading to painful and lingering deaths, as well as widespread disability and illness. While the company privately acknowledges its role in the dumping—and its ongoing responsibility for the welfare of the victims—it is insistent that Boniface keeps the story out of the public domain until it has fully assessed how it can most effectively deliver support to those affected.

Boniface knows he has been set up for the murder—and that somebody is trying to destroy him, his business, and everything he holds dear—but he doesn't know who has set him up, or why. He strips back the layers, discovering who the dead man was, why he was killed, why the body was dumped in his office, and why he was set up in such a clumsy manner until, he finds who has endangered his livelihood, his liberty, and his friends.

This leaves Boniface with only one conclusion: He must neutralize the threat, permanently, while at the same time trying to protect anyone affected by the dumping.

A New York investigator risks his life to look into shady activity at a downtown loft. If only he’d listened to his mother and become a mob enforcer instead . . .
 
Tipping the scales at 240 pounds, Alphonse Joseph Bressio is a big man in New York’s legal investigation biz, though he’d rather be doing almost anything else. If he had heeded his ample gut’s feeling and refused a powerful lawyer’s request to help out the paranoid ex-girlfriend of middle-age, drug-dealing loser L. Marvin Fleish, Bressio could have spared himself a headache bigger than his appetite and gambling problem combined. But his soft heart got the best of him. Now the portly PI is running afoul of local mobsters, overzealous federal narcs, and blue-blooded ex-government functionaries by looking too closely into strange doings at a downtown loft that the cops aren’t talking about, despite the unusual number of corpses that seem to be connected to it. Bressio is starting to think it would have been less hazardous to his health and sanity if he had followed in his father’s footsteps and become a Mafia enforcer. At least it would have made his mother happy.
 
From Richard Ben Sapir, cocreator of The Destroyer series, comes a wild and woolly, tongue-in-cheek take on the hardboiled detective novel. Sapir’s Bressio is a nonstop delight, frenetic and funny with a truly outrageous cast of anti-heroes, detestable villains, hard-luck bystanders, and arguably the most endearingly unforgettable protagonist ever to grace the pages of noir crime fiction.
