Finding life a little dull after the hustle-bustle of the holidays? Have I got the solution for you! Get yourself a copy of The Devil's Necktie, curl up in a comfortable chair and open the first page. There! Problem solved. Enjoy.

Need convincing? Retired Inspector Jack Bertolino worked in narcotics for 25 years. Now he's finished with that. Except ... an old confidential informant calls and pleads for help. But, wouldn't you know? She is immediately brutally murdered and it looks like Jack is meant to take the fall for her death. This is where it gets really exciting. Jack has to deal with drug lords, gangbangers, street gangs, drug runners, money laundering, a Columbian drug cartel, as well as various bad guys who seem to multiply at random.

I warn you. Be prepared for a wing ding of a finale. You'll hold your breath and be glad you're not in the middle of it. Author John Lansing has spent twenty years writing and producing network television. He wrote Good Cop, Bad Money, a true crime book, and has now turned to fiction with The Devil's Necktie.
