Read an excerpt from The Jumping-Off Place

A rough-and-tumble private eye in New Orleans takes on drug-dealing drug agents, lawbreaking lawyers, and a blonde with ice blue eyes. From the Mississippi Gulf Coast to the killing fields of Colombia, to a showdown on a sportfishing boat in the Florida Straits, Norville "Bunny" Gross takes on all comers as he and a missing drug smuggler's girlfriend search for a hidden stash of cash.

Reviews of The Jumping-Off Place

"The Jumping-Off Place is both a tribute to the classics and a great hard-boiled novel in its own right." Roger Parris, author of Modern Murder: The New Hard-Boiled Detectives

"The action is fast and furious with plenty of surprises along the way. Definitely a book that is difficult to put down until the end. The hard-boiled novel is alive and well at the millennium!" Bill Edwards, Bill's Bookshelf

"Bunny Gross is one tough cookie! ... You'll root for him all the way." Gerald Maudi, Red Herring Review

"The Jumping-Off Place would make perfect grist for a Tarantino movie." William Edwards, Fan
