"Eye on the prize, if she can survive." -- Cover.
Summary
"Too much to prove... A former journalist with a knack for unraveling dirty secrets, Khloé Mercer figures if she's going to risk her life, she might as well make big money as a private investigator. But this reckless newbie needs a major case to make her name -- and really show she can handle Norfolk, Virginia's toughest streets... Too much to hide... When a narcotics detective's widow needs someone to investigate her disgraced husband's so-called suicide, Khloé jumps at the lucrative fee -- and the clues that the Norfolk Police Department is rotten from top to bottom. And with formidable backup from her ex-felon uncle, she turns the city upside-down to uncover the truth... Too late to run... But Khloé's cage-rattling tactics and high-wire strategies threaten both the cops and the city's brutal underworld alike. Now, with her life in the crosshairs and no one she can trust, she'll find that building a reputation comes with a price she may not survive to pay..." -- From publisher's description.

Summary
"With gimlet eyed cool and razor sharp wit, The Low Desert explores both the depravity and humanity at the heart of Tod Goldberg's critically acclaimed gangster universe, first introduced in Gangsterland, continued in Gangster Nation, and expanded here with all-new and returning characters. The uncle of an FBI agent spends his life as sheriff in different cities, living too close to the violent acts of men; a cocktail waitress moves through several desert towns trying to escape the loss of an adopted daughter who went missing under unexplained circumstances; a drug dealer with a penchant for karaoke and a bullet hole in his foot meets a talkative lawyer and a silent clown in a Palm Springs bar. These surprising and thrilling stories from a master of modern crime fiction elaborate and enrich the dynamic Sal Cupertine/Rabbi David Cohen gangster universe."--Provided by publisher.

Summary
"Trust no one,not even those closest to you, the brothers you grew up with on the corners,the woman who lies beside you at night. Make the mistake of trusting them, you die or they die, because the only way for two people to keep a secret is if one of them is in the ground. Same as it ever was. When a new power rises up on the streets the game changes. Othello announces himself in furious violence, taking down the old gods and gangsters of the city. His crew are at his side, he is the man, but unseen around him fractures are forming, loyalties breaking . The only way to become the king is to kill the king... and he has a target on his back."--Back cover.
