Crime always pays

Burke, Declan, author

Karen and Ray are on their way to the Greek islands to rendezvous with Madge and split the fat bag of cash they conned from her ex-husband Rossi when they kidnapped, well, Madge. But they've reckoned without Stephanie Doyle, the cop who can't decide if she wants to arrest Madge, shoot Rossi, or ride off into the sunset with Ray. And then there's Melody, the wannabe movie director, who's pinning all her hopes on Sleeps, the narcoleptic getaway driver who just wants to go back inside and do some soft time

"Burke keeps adding more characters, making for a profusion of drugs, cops, grifters, guns, and shifting alliances that’s both baffling and entertaining"
Publishers Weekly||“Don’t blink, or you’ll miss the latest realignments among criminal conspirators so uniformly energetic and amoral that long before this installment is over, it’s hard to tell them apart"
Kirkus Reviews||“The dialogue flows fast, which moves the story along at a frantic pace. Give this one to fans of comic crime capers—Tim Dorsey, in particular.”
