Review

"Has the style, verve, and all-around insouciance of Elmore Leonard."--"The Arizona Daily Star"""Devil's Food" is good, grainy crime writing, a little bit like New Jersey's answer to Elmore Leonard."--"The Advocate" (Greenwich, Conn.)"Like the emponymous dessert, the book is delicious."--"Deadly Pleasures" (four-star review)

Product Description

Anthony Award Finalist: A skip tracer chases an embezzler to Florida—and finds herself entangled with bikers and the IRS—in this thriller “packed with humor” (Booklist).
 
With her low-level law-enforcement career on the rocks, it’s make-it-or-break-it time for zaftig Loretta Kovacs. She’s been assigned to the ragtag Parole Violators Search Unit, a.k.a. the Jump Squad. All her buttons are pushed when she goes undercover as a desperate dieter at a Florida fat farm in order to nab an embezzler who’s a perfect size 2. But untangling the mysteries surrounding this case is going to be harder than passing up a pastry . . .
 
“Bruno’s characters are more than just quirky dressing for the plot . . . It moves fast and furious, but along the way his characters’ struggles with their own doubts and failings anchor the reader to them.” —The Nashville Banner
 
“A divertingly comic entertainment with a bittersweet bite.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
Devil’s Food is good, grainy crime writing, a little bit like New Jersey’s answer to Elmore Leonard.” —The Advocate (Greenwich, CT)
