Monkey Man: a crime story - Book coverSalesman, scam artist, criminal, killer--Ike Caudine never admits to himself what he has become, but he knows he likes it.

After his Mary leaves him, Ike is desperate for an idea, a plan to impress her and win her back. He turns to his childhood friend, Fritz Moeller, and soon finds himself drawn into a violent world of drug dealers and at the center of the money laundering empire that his friend has created.

Once he dominates this new, thrilling world, can he ever go back to being just hers?

Full of dark humor and unforgettable characters, Monkey Man takes the reader on a wild ride through an underworld that lies beneath the affluent surface of a place called Greenwich, Connecticut.

Author's Note:

I do admit, however, that the first scene in his debut novel, Monkey Man, pretty much happened exactly as he described it in the book.

I was on a sales call, and the guy I was pitching just sat and stared at this box of donuts the whole time. It was like he was hypnotized.
