Book Description


A mesmerizing edge-of-the-seat thriller that combines the gritty realism of a cop's world with some of the most hair-raising scenes in modern fiction, Bait heralds the stunning debut of Kenneth Abel, a brilliant new voice in suspense fiction. Abel's nerve-shattering novel introduces a hero who gives us all reason to cheer ... a man who refuses to run, a cop who crosses the line to protect what matters most - his family and his pride. The life and career of narcotics detective Jack Walsh goes to hell the night his partner gets shot. First he drinks to blank out the memory; then getting drunk leads to the accident where Boston's boss of bosses, Johnny D'Angelo, loses his only son. It's Walsh's car that plows into the boy's birthday Mazda, and Walsh's badge that makes the whole "tragedy" seem suspicious. Maybe the collision is pure chance, but one thing is sure: Johnny D'Angelo needs to salve his family's grief by making Jack Walsh pay. Stripped of his badge, Walsh spends his time reviewing this strange series of events, putting together enough firepower to hold off an army, and watching the men who are watching him. That is until pretty U.S. Attorney Kate Haggerty comes knocking at his door, telling him the deal: They want him to wear a wire and be the bait that catches D'Angelo. But neither Walsh nor the feds count on the inept gangsters and loose cannons who are coming after Walsh. And nobody counts on Walsh's keeping the code of silence and loyalty to his own kind. Walsh is after personal justice. He'll be the bait to catch the fish he wants hooked in the violent underworld of narcs and crime kingpins ... where a cop who knows too much may be the only one smart enough to survive.
