In a debut novel sure to both excite passions and elicit laughter, a different kind of hero emerges in that most unlikely criminal hotbed: Boca Raton.Eddie Perlmutter is capable of fighting with fearless frenzy, but only does so to defend the defenseless. EddieÂs career as a much-honored Boston cop has come to an end. At sixty, heÂs still energetic and virile, but decades of harsh New England winters and collaring the pug-uglies of BostonÂs underworld have taken their tollÂespecially on his knees. So what does a lonely, retired cop with arthritic knees do? Head to sunny Florida, of course.Country-club politics and early-bird specials are a far cry from the street toughs, scuffles, and arrests of his former life. But some things never change. Instead of enjoying a relaxed, laid-back retirement, Eddie quickly discovers the darker side of Boca RatonÂs endless sun and palm trees, where hate crimes, counterfeiting, and worse lurk beneath the deceptively calm surface of cushy retirement communities.With his no-nonsense crime-fighting skills and roll-with-the punches attitude, Eddie hits Boca Raton like of a NorÂeaster from Hell, fast, fresh, and unstoppable. A compulsively readable comic thriller with an egalitarian message that will inspire readers of all ages, Boca Knights will have readers in stitches and keep them on the edge of their seats.
