Dale is a crooked cop. It started slow but grew like a cancer and now he can't get out from under the thumb of Tat, a would-be kingpin in every vice he can turn a profit with. And now Dale's number is up—the top brass knows. But instead of getting busted, Dale gets an offer. The mayor's daughter is being held by Tat in his fortress built from an abandoned office tower. They want her back but if they storm the gates, Lauren is as good as dead. So they're sending Dale on what could very likely be a suicide mission: infiltrate Tat's fortress and bring her out alive. If the Mayor even really wants her alive… Floor by floor Dale and Lauren have to fight off an increasingly difficult and dangerous set of obstacles. Meanwhile, Dale's wife has her own troubles and some of the drug kingpin's goons are only adding to an already rough day. The clock is ticking down along with the floors of the building and escape is looking less and less likely. But to save her, and to save himself, he must make it all the way down.
Praise for Eric Beetner & All the Way Down “Last chances, double crosses, and a cop who has to shoot his way out of a fortified skyscraper—what’s not to love? All the Way Down rips. It’s fast and fierce, like a guitar solo that hits all the sharpest notes.” —Meg Gardiner, author of Into the Black Nowhere
“Balls out insanity!” —Owen Laukkanen, author of The Professionals and Kill Fee
“Eric Beetner is quickly becoming one of my favorite new crime writers, and The Devil Doesn’t Want Me is a perfect example of why. If you’re a fan of fast paced, well-written hardboiled crime fiction, you’re going to love this book. Beetner is the real deal, and I can only hope this is just the start of what we can expect from him in the future.” —John Rector, author of The Cold Kiss and Already Gone
“This book is like if you took Lawrence Block’s famous hitman, Keller, and made him the lovechild of Elmore Leonard and Quentin Tarantino.” —Criminal Element
“I stayed up half one night reading Rumrunners. Man, I love that book. Terrific. Dark magic.” —Ken Bruen, author of the Jack Taylor series
“Few contemporary writers do justice to the noir tradition the way Eric Beetner does. Others try to emulate and mimic; Beetner just takes the form and cuts his own jagged, raw and utterly readable path. Rumrunners is the latest example of his great storytelling skills, and his uncompromising commitment to the dark, often violent truth at the center of the human heart.” —Gar Anthony Haywood, author of the Aaron Gunner series
