No One Rides for Free

Larry Beinhart

With the soul of a street kid, reluctant ties to the mob, and the mind of an ivy-league sharpie, Tony Cassella is more than a private investigator. He’s a man with a mission—to stay true to himself, the people he loves, and a personal code he can’t always live up to.

When an old-line lawyer threatens to spill his guts to the SEC about his firm’s dirty deals, Tony is hired by the top-drawer Wall Street firm to bug the secret testimony. But when the high-priced canary is found dead in a parking lot, Tony goes hunting for bigger game. But can he find the fat cat who killed the canary before he becomes the next birdie on the menu himself?
