Baker & Taylor
Hired by a political candidate who wants to reclaim his wild daughter from the hot-headed leader of a motorcycle gang, private investigators Jim Bishop and Scott Weiss find themselves unprepared for the gang leader's ruthless intellect and the daughter's brutal seductiveness. 50,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
Honey---a vivacious, wealthy, seventeen-year-old daughter of a politician---has a penchant for drug dealers, mad-dog bikers, booze, sex, crank, and guns. She's run off with Cobra, the leader of a band of motorcycle-gang outcasts who have dubbed themselves the Outriders since they are too hotheaded and reckless for other rival gangs. But her father, who is running for the U.S. Senate, wants her back before she takes his career down in flames along with her hell-bent soul.

Enter Scott Weiss and Jim Bishop, Andrew Klavan's star private eyes from Dynamite Road. Weiss is a former cop who is an accomplished detective with a lot of connections. Bishop is a savvy, strong-willed tough guy and ladies' man who does the legwork for Weiss's agency.
Bishop's assignment: infiltrate the Outriders and seduce and steal Honey away from Cobra. But has Bishop finally met his match? Cobra is brilliant as well as bad---an oddly intellectual biker who is one step ahead of everyone on his trail. And Honey is not only rich and beautiful, she is hotter than the hinges of hell, irresistibly alluring, a black widow who draws the hardest, toughest, sharpest hustlers into her lethal web---where she consumes them whole.

Bishop, falling for a woman like never before, is drawn into Honey's web, and even with the diabolically clever Weiss in his corner---working with the cops, scheming with the politicians, pulling the strings, and calling the shots---Bishop may be going down.

Has Bishop finally met his match? Is Honey too hot to handle?

Not your average formulaic continuing-character detective story. Great main characters, not stereotypes, and our "heroes" are not chiselled perfection. A real page-turner with believable plot twists. I want to read more from this author.

Love his upside down mystery wriitng, love the humour, the tough guy contrasted with the other very strong personalities and their terrible frailties. No wonder his books are made into movies. You want to meet his characters
