Overview
Bruno Johnson, a tough street cop, member of the elite violent crime task force, feared by the bad guys, admired by the good, finds his life derailed when a personal tragedy forces him to break the law. Now he's an ex-con and his life on parole is not going well. He is hassled by the police at every opportunity and to make matters even more difficult, his former partner, Robby Wicks, now a high-ranking detective, bullies him into helping solve a high profile crime - unofficially, of course. Meantime, Bruno's girlfriend, Marie, brings out the good, the real Bruno, and even though they veer totally outside the law, he and Marie dedicate themselves to saving abused children, creating a type of underground railroad for neglected kids at risk, disposable kids. What they must do is perilous they step far outside the law, battling a warped justice system and Bruno's former partner, with his own evil agenda."

Putnam’s first novel, a fast-paced tale of idealism and corruption, stars paroled ex-con Bruno Johnson, once a legendary member of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s elite Violent Crimes Team, who fears that it’s only a matter of time before his former colleagues turn on him. Desperate for a nest egg large enough to allow him to disappear with lover Marie and the abused kids they’ve rescued, Bruno agrees to do one final big job. Meanwhile, his former partner, Robby Wicks, to whom Bruno owes a favor, asks him for assistance in solving a brutal series of murders, perhaps the work of a single madman or evidence of something much darker. The author relies on iconic figures—endangered children, sympathetic hookers with a weakness for broken cops, amoral lowlifes with and without badges—rather than more complex characters, but he wields his archetypes with skill and a sincerity born of long experience in law enforcement. Agents: Mike and Susan Farris, Farris Literary Agency. (May)
