Rush Henry didn't know who his client was and he was told he would never find out, but his fee was big and his instructions were explicit: Clean up Forest City!
It sounded like a tough assignment - and it was, even tougher than it sounded.Beua Marr, Max Carney and Card Sully had the city in their pockets. Gambling, prostitution and the most vicious racketeering flourished, operated almost openly. But Rush could find no flaw in the smooth, powerful organization the Big Three had perfected during their many years of unopposed dominance. Yet somewhere there had to be a weakness where Rush could start blasting. It would mean violence, probably bloodshed and death - but it was a job that had to be done, and once started it had to be finished.
Rush Henry mysteries are always primed with action and this one is no exception. It moves like wildfire and leaves you limp at the finish!
