THE JUMPING-OFF PLACE
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.
