Crissa Stone is a career criminal who has pulled a number of
impressive heists by knowing how to keep her mouth shut and her temper in
check. Still, as good as she is, she wants to get out of the life. All she
needs is one last big score, enough to bribe her lover’s way out on parole, set
up a safe and stable new life, and get her daughter back. But things keep
going wrong, like when her last two partners lost their cool and fought over
the take instead of walking away $150,000 richer. The mess they made of the job
and each other has put her on the run again.
She’s not the only one. Benny Roth, a former mobster, has
been straight for years, but now he has his own problems. A face from the past
has popped up to tell him that boss Joey Dio is finally dead and to ask about
the $5 million that Joey was rumored to have stashed away years ago.
Benny denies knowing anything about it and claims he’s out of the business.
That may be what he says, but he’s willing to risk almost everything for one
With the law and mobsters on the lookout and $5 million on the line, it isn’t long before Crissa and Benny find themselves on a
collision course that neither of them can avoid. This hard-boiled world, where
the stakes—and the risks—are always high, unfolds at breakneck speed in Kings
of Midnight, another dark
and thrilling masterwork of crime fiction from Wallace Stroby.
