9780060851699: Dead Cat Bounce: A Novel

Stoney gave up drinking, but it couldn't save his marriage. Leaving the big house in New Jersey to his wife and kids, he's living in the City—still working the profitable, if not 100 percent legal, angles with his partner, "Fat Tommy Bagadonuts." Then, out of the blue, Stoney's teenage daughter shows up with a problem: an unwanted admirer who needs to be cooled down . . . or eliminated.

But the secrets Marisa's been keeping from her father—like her night job as an exotic dancer—can't compare with those being guarded by the mysterious and violent man who's stalking her: a dangerous enigma with no past and a made-up name. He does, however, have lots of money—which makes him a very tempting mark for Stoney, Tommy, and their young streetwise "apprentice," Tuco. But people who look too closely into this guy's history have a habit of turning up dead.

About the Author:

Norman Green reports this about himself: "I have always been careful, as Mark Twain advised, not to let schooling interfere with my education. Too careful, maybe. I have been, at various times, a truck driver, a construction worker, a project engineer, a factory rep, and a plant engineer, but never, until now, a writer." He lives in Emerson, New Jersey, with his wife, and is hard at work on his second novel.

From Booklist:

Manhattan scam-artist Stoney managed to quit drinking but not before his wife, Donna, quit him. It's been a while since he has talked to his two children. His closest confidantes are his AA sponsor, Benny, and a pair of dubious professional associates, Tommy "Bagadonuts" Rosselli and Tuco, a rough-around-the-edges young man whom Tommy rescued from the streets. As the novel opens, Stoney's 17-year-old daughter, Marisa, calls him in a panic over Charles David Prior, an eccentric millionaire whom she claims is romantically involved with her mother. With the help of Tuco and a shrewd private investigator, Stoney discovers a trio of disturbing truths: Marisa has been dancing at a local strip club, working for an escort service, and she, not her mother, is the object of Prior's unwanted advances. Stoney's sponsor, Benny, isn't the least bit surprised by Marisa's predicament: "You and your wife have been doing the addict-co-dependent mambo ever since you got married," he says. Furious at his daughter and fearful harm will come her way, Stoney and his colleagues hatch a deliciously twisted scheme to give Prior his due. Fans of Elmore Leonard are sure to enjoy Green (Shooting Dr. Jack, 2001), who delivers crisp prose and a collection of flawed characters navigating the rocky road to redemption. Allison Block
