Hardboiled Collective: Revenge (Mick Murphy) by Michael Haskins
There's a great novel out right now by another member of The Hardboiled Collective.
When journalist Mick Murphy runs into his love fantasy in a wintry Harvard Yard, he is soon dragged into a web of brutal killings that began in Boston and end in Southern California. Trying to protect his dream girl, a Filipina named Michelle, Murphy runs afoul of a police friend and his nemesis, a Cuban-American cop, as well as Los Angeles County sheriffs, before he is beaten by a gang of Ameriasians and his Jeep is blown up. Holding onto his romantic dream, Murphy faces loss of friends and his life before the finale.
You don't want to miss this one if you love Travis McGee, Doc Ford or Thorn.
