Dead On My Feet
Author: J.A. Konrath
Format: Kindle Edition
His name is Phineas Troutt. He's a problem solver.
If a woman is being stalked by her ex-husband, Phin can convince him to stop. If a union is being squeezed, Phin can squeeze the squeezer. He's not a mercenary. He's not a bodyguard. He's not a private dick. He's a guy who takes cash for solving problems with violence.
When a doctor at a suburban women's health clinic is being harassed, she hires Phin to make it stop. But the situation proves to be larger, and more dangerous, than even he can handle on his own. So he calls in some friends to help out; a P.I. named Harry McGlade and a female cop named Jack Daniels...
Set in 2007, Konrath turns up the noir and gives leading man status to his favorite tough guy. Phin has appeared in the bestselling novels Whiskey Sour, Rusty Nail, Shaken, Rum Runner, Last Call, and many others, but now he's finally the main character. Filled with the same action, humor, and intrigue as the Jack Daniels series, but with a grittier, hardboiled edge, Dead on My Feet is the first in a Phin Troutt trilogy, which also includes Dying Breath and Everybody Dies.
Dead on My Feet is book #1 in the Phineas Troutt series.
