“If you like hard-boiled action, memorable villains and twisty plots, the Jake Scarne thrillers never disappoint!” (John Crudele, NEW YORK POST)WHO KIDNAPPED A MOB PRINCESS FROM HER IVY-LEAGUE COLLEGE? Alana Dallas has been snatched. Her mother, Maura, head of San Francisco’s powerful Dallassio crime family, will do anything to get her back safely. As would the fearsome Vincent Anastasia, the elderly family enforcer who adores the girl.But who would be crazy enough to kidnap her? A rival gang? Or, even worse, a pervert?Reluctant to contact the F.B.I., Maura Dallas turns to Jake Scarne, who has both police and underworld contacts. And a reputation for doing the impossible – usually because he will bend, even break, the law to help a client. But there is another reason she wants the private eye’s help. One that stirs his memories and emotions. What Scarne and Anastasia eventually discover is far more terrible than Maura Dallas could have imagined. FACETS, by Pulitzer-nominee Lawrence De Maria, "is a steamroller of action and calculation" that is "notable for snappy dialogue, engaging descriptions of how to work an investigation, boldly drawn characters and vivid settings." (FLORIDA WEEKLY)So, if you want a thriller with non-stop action, sudden surprises and a shocking ending, FACETS is for you. And it’s only a click away!***“While De Maria may have been an award-winning financial reporter, he's an awfully good fiction writer as well.” (NAPLES DAILY NEWS)“What is really almost beyond belief is how easily De Maria has transitioned from the dry world of financial reporting to the wild and lavish world of novel writing.” (COLLIER CITIZEN)“A master of thriller dialogue.” (WASHINGTON INDEPENDENT REVIEW OF BOOKS)
