Description

A petty thief, Manny suddenly has more money than he's ever dreamed of thanks to his latest job. But a big score brings big danger-from his dubious partner and from the Russian mobsters they ripped off. Worse, if Manny's busted again, he'll go back to prison for life, leaving behind his motherless five-year-old son, Nicky.

Desperate to beat the odds and his enemies, Manny grabs Nicky and heads to the wilds of Maine. There he finds a home and an unlikely surrogate family among the "Mainers." But his enemies have caught his scent. Now Manny must discover if he has what it takes to change his street-tough ways. But can he really settle into a new life if it means endangering everyone he's come to love

About Norman Green

Norman Green reports this about himself: "I have always been careful, as Mark Twain advised, not to let schooling interfere with my education. Too careful, maybe. I have been, at various times, a truck driver, a construction worker, a project engineer, a factory rep, and a plant engineer, but never, until now, a writer." He lives in Emerson, New Jersey, with his wife, and is hard at work on his second novel.
