Tommy Ruzzo was a NYPD officer who was fired because of his girlfriend's cocaine habit. No, the police force could not prove that Ruzzo took the cocaine from the police evidence room but that didn't matter. Ruzzo loved Shayna. Shayna loved the coke. When Ruzzo no longer had the coke, well he no longer had Shayna.
He became a security guard at a retirement community in Florida. His life of spending days watching over the residents, going home, and drinking himself into oblivion seemed boring. That was before the first gruesome murder of one of the residents appears. Now, Ruzzo has to work with Sgt. Badeaux, of the Florida Police Dept., and figure out who is knocking off the residents of Precious Acres Retirement Community.
One of the residents tells Tommy Ruzzo that he needs to search the local paper's crossword puzzle to search for clues. "First clue, crosswise"
Like I said, the book is very original and smart. I loved it. Lauden has become one of those writers that I cannot wait until he comes out with the next book. Highly recommend. I cannot express how much I enjoyed this ride.
Lauden starts this recipe with a disgraced cop who stole cocaine from an evidence locker to support the habit of his girlfriend and now he is forced to work as the head of security at a Floridian old folks home. He then he mixes in mafia connected old timers, murder, angry policemen, and someone who is serving up clues in a radical manner. Lauden bakes it at a high heat and serves it with a deft touch that propels the reader on one hell of a ride from the get-go until the final page.
While this is a great read, the true beauty of this gem is seeing Lauden flex his muscles in a very different story than his first offering. Lauden has stated that readers will see him delve into many different styles and genres, both conventional and unorthodox. If his first two books are any indication, it is a wise choice for you to jump on this bandwagon right now. If this book doesn’t get him the rub right now, I can say he will be labeled a must-read author in the very near future. His writing is a thing of beauty.
