"Once in, no one ever gets out alive."

Detroit Detectives Albert McCoy and Otis Springfield are up against a sociopath with a genius I.Q. who is offing people at an alarming rate. A resolute intimidator, Billy Bones isn't about to relinquish his power over his network of drug dealers, especially young Monica Wilson.

When Monica finds an opportunity to sidestep into showbiz, she makes the break from her shadowy past. As her fresh new style as a singer sends 'Monica and the Nephewz' sizzling up the pop charts, Billy slithers into the scene demanding what he considers his share. His inhumane warnings leaves Monica frightened not only for herself but for anyone connected to her.

Follow Detectives McCoy and Springfield through a minefield of death, murder attempts, and destruction as they pursue Billy Bones to a northern Michigan ski lodge as he seeks to exact painful justice and revenge upon his quarry.


About the Author

DENNIS COLLINS has to sample everything, loving thrills and adventure. The author played sports like football and baseball and the tender age of eighteen even tried his hand at prizefighting. Then came the need for speed. Summertime saw Mr. Collins racing automotive powered hydroplanes, and the winter was spent racing motorcycles on the ice. The in between seasons, he jumped out of airplanes.

Educated at University of Detroit, his mainstream career was in the auto industry where he spent thirty-three years in engineering. He recalls being in his twenties when a Hemingway short story started him thinking about writing. Retirement offered the opportunity to finally realize the dream of becoming a novelist.

His first novel, The Unreal McCoy, has received outstanding reviews and was a finalist in the ‘reader’s choice’ awards at the, ‘Love is Murder’, writer’s conference in Chicago in February, 2002. Calvin, a short story, was a finalist in the Futures Magazine, TWIST contest in February 2002.
