On February 19, the third book in my crime fiction series about the Detroit mafia will be released. Once again, Detective Clark Phillips is working to end the mafia’s control of the city. His job is overwhelming, not to mention dangerous, as he leads his specially appointed task force in GET EVEN: Detroit Thorn Birds Defy Mafia.
The story takes place in 1982. Heroin has hit Detroit—money is king; there’s no loyalty—everyone wants to get even!
Drug kingpins are fighting each other and the mafia for control of the inner city. Clark and his team of FBI agents and the finest members of the police force are called upon to assist DEA agents, while at the same time trying to solve a series of unexplained mob assassinations.
Twists and Turns
There’s a large number of twists and turns as many characters hold grudges and feel they need to GET EVEN. You may be surprised about who’s doing what to whom.
Of course, many of the characters in GET EVEN are the same as in SAX CLUB and BLIND PIG. Remember Clark’s personal friends? Carlos, owner of several used car dealerships, Renzo, a local remodeling contractor, Earl, a high school basket teammate and a member of the Detroit police force, Ted, an apartment building owner, and, Father Dom, a retired Catholic high school principal. These friends, along with their spouses and significant others make up the core of the Detroit Thorn Birds. You don’t want to miss how they cleverly defy the mafia.
