Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's Christmas Eve in Brooklyn and sexy real estate exec Dot Racine is dead. 

 

Once upon a time, she was the first runner-up in the Miss Ohio pageant.  Now, Dot's bullet-riddled body is in the trunk of Dick Miller's car. Miller - an A-list handsome ex-con, and Dot's former lover and employee, has no idea how the body got there.  All he knows is he will do nearly anything to make it to go away.    

Dot's other former lover, freelance cocaine trafficker and murderer Nestor Garcia, is on the run from the cartels. He's interested in Dot's keys to safe deposit boxes in the Bahamas with more than a million dollars tucked away inside.

Cool Breeze is a survivor and a warrior.  Sex and deception are her weapons of choice.  Breeze plans to let all Dot's lovers and business partners kill each other off.  After they're dead, Breeze will walk away with the money.

Nothing will happen as planned.

The Takedown is a roller coaster ride of a novel that twists and turns toward a stunning showdown readers won't soon forget.

Synopsis:

Quinlan's critically acclaimed novel "Smoked" was an explosive debut, but his follow-up is a roller coaster ride of a novel that twists and turns toward a stunning showdown readers won't soon forget.

About the Author

Patrick Quinlan is the critically acclaimed author of Smoked.  Quinlan was the youngest child in a big, noisy, New York Irish-American family. Ten minutes late to dinner and the food was all gone. 

 

Other kids in the neighborhood wanted to become cops, or firemen, or crime kingpins.  He wanted to become Jimi Hendrix. At an early age, he became an accomplished and incorrigible liar, eventually finding work that made good use of this talent - journalist, political operative, copywriter, and now novelist.   

 

He lives on the coast of Maine with his wife, Joy Scott.  Check out his website at www.patrickquinlan.com.
