Title: Shotgun Alley
Author: Andrew Klavan
Hired by a political candidate who wants to reclaim his wild daughter from the hot-headed leader of a motorcycle gang, private investigators Jim Bishop and Scott Weiss find themselves unprepared for the gang leader’s ruthless intellect.
Honey is the vivacious, seventeen-year-old daughter of a politician running for state senate and eventually (he hopes) the presidency. But his sweet little girl has a penchant for drug dealers, mad-dog bikers, booze, sex, crank, and guns. She’s run off with Cobra, the leader of a band of motorcycle-gang outcasts who have dubbed themselves the Outriders since they are too hotheaded and reckless for other rival gangs. Honey is on a fast track to taking her father’s career down—along with her hell-bent soul.
Enter Scott Weiss and Jim Bishop. Weiss is a former cop, an accomplished detective with a lot of connections. Bishop is a savvy, strong-willed tough guy and ladies’ man who does the legwork for Weiss’s agency. Bishop’s assignment: infiltrate the Outriders and seduce Honey away. But Cobra is as brilliant as he is bad—an oddly intellectual biker who is one step ahead of everyone on his trail. And Honey is not only young, rich, and beautiful, she is hotter than the hinges of hell, irresistibly alluring, a black widow who draws the hardest, toughest, sharpest hustlers into her lethal web, where she consumes them whole. Have Weiss and Bishop finally met their match? Is Honey too hot to handle?
