BLOOD ON THE MINK
A undercover government agent tries to bring down counterfeiters.
Along the way, two other criminals get involved. So now the agent has three groups of criminals, two women, and one old Hungarian man to deal with.
The story NEVER gets confusing... It's a quick and smooth read all the way through.
There's tons of greed, betrayal, misunderstandings, lust filled hearts, bullets, blood, death, destruction, and one extremely exciting car chase.

DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
This story is wall to wall action. Once I started reading it, I couldn't stop.
FYI: We don't find out the agent's real name til the end.
BLOOD ON THE MINK has become one of my favorite HARD CASE CRIME books.
Someone needs to make this into a movie ( theatrical or cable ).
Or how about a TV series?.. I think the undercover agent in this book is far more interesting than the main character from the cable series called MAGIC CITY ( STARZ cable channel ).
TWO short stories by Robert Silverberg are also included. They are as follows...
DANGEROUS DOLL... A mob courier's libido and impatience, gets him into big trouble.
ONE NIGHT OF VIOLENCE... A really great story about a traveling salesman named Mike Keller, and the hellish night he spends at a mob infested motel.
This book is divided into the following sections...
BLOOD ON THE MINK - Pages 1 - 157
AFTERWORD - Pages 159 - 162
DANGEROUS DOLL - Pages 163 - 179
ONE NIGHT OF VIOLENCE - Pages 181 - 217
