When the author he is representing is murdered, Boniface realizes the job demands more than he expected. And when the man he is talking with is shot, Boniface runs.

When the author of a book about England's most famous Tudor monarch is murdered, Boniface realizes that handling the press and publicity for the book launch demands more than he expected. And when the man he is talking with is shot, then he witnesses as a third person is forcibly drowned, and he finds he is being pursued by a former Russian Special Forces soldier, Boniface runs.

He delays his death by trading the only thing of value he can offer his would-be assassin: details of a 500-year-old cover-up. The only difficulty in making the trade is that Boniface can't prove what he knows is true--yet.

If he finds and hands over the proof, the murderer has no incentive to keep him alive. If he lives, Boniface has to explain the transaction for his life to his capricious paymaster.

Boniface needs to unwrap what the dead author found, figure out why he was killed, protect his client's interests, and stay alive.

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.
