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?

"Andrew Klavan's "Shotgun Alley" is smart, tough and fun. The writing is robust and spot-on, and the story is a collision of powerful characters you just can't take your eyes off. Splendid entertainment."--T. Jefferson Parker, Edgar Award winner and bestselling author of "Silent Joe"
"Klavan's understanding of the human heart and how it can be torn or salved by eros is uncanny. There's sharp action throughout and the interplay between Bishop's wildness and Weiss's moral gravity is a wonder. . . . A joy ride that's as exciting and real as any this year in thrillerdom."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) on "Shotgun Alley"
"[A] breakneck hard-boiled mystery. . . . The mixture of intense action, fierce sexual obsession, and
