The Punishing Game (A Frank Boff Mystery)

On the Dark Side, things aren’t always what they appear to be.

That’s the way it looks to private eye Frank Boff when his friend, boxer Danny Cullen, gets caught in the middle of a drive-by shooting between two Brooklyn street gangs, the Bloods and the Jamaican Posse. A bullet grazes Cullen’s head as he hurls himself to the ground with his trainer, Ryan McAlary. A second trainer, Nino Biaggi, isn’t so lucky. He takes three to the head and is dead before he hits concrete.

The cops say Cullen and the two trainers were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. But when Boff hears about it, he isn’t buying it. No way. No how. He thinks the drive-by was staged, that Cullen was the target of a well-planned assassination attempt.

So Boff hops a plane from his home in Vegas and flies to New York, where Cullen is in training for a big fight at the famed Madison Square Garden. The private eye launches an investigation into the shooting, and when he turns up evidence that the drive-by was indeed faked, an angry Cullen once again joins forces with Boff.

Their investigation will take them into a dangerous shadow world where powerful people are playing a game of high-stakes poker in order to pull off a multi-million dollar scam. When Boff is nearly gunned down in another assassination attempt, he and Cullen are now dead set on not only stopping the scam but punishing the people involved in a way that’s more just than justice.
