Head of Zeus
The Hard Stuff
The Hard Stuff David Gordon

Ex-black-ops-specialist-turned-strip-club-bouncer Joe Brody has a new qualification to add to his resume: an alliance of New York City's mob bosses has deemed him its 'sheriff.' In the straight world, when you 'see something' you 'say something' to the law. In the bent world, they call Joe.

Still reeling from a particularly difficult operation, and having plummeted back into the drug and alcohol addiction that got him kicked out of the military as a result, Joe has just managed to detox at the clinic of a Chinese herbalist when the mob bosses phone: they need Joe to help them swindle a group of opioid dealers (of all things).

But these are no typical drug-ferrying gangsters. Little Maria, the head of the Dominican mob, has discovered that her new heroin suppliers belong to an al Qaeda splinter group, and that they're planning to use their drug funds to back their terrorist agenda. With Joe in command, the mob coalition must pull off an intricate heist that will begin in Manhattan's diamond district. At stake is not only their business, but the state of the world.

REVIEWS
'The action pops and crackles and the dialogue – particularly amongst the various gangsters – positively zings. The Hard Stuff is a fast and furious crime caper which reminded me of the crime novels of one of my favourite American writers of about twenty years ago, Doug J. Swanson'
