BosstownBook - 2017
""This book is a caffeine and poker fueled adrenaline rush that I could not put down until the last twisting, violent hand had played out." --Sarah Silverman, stand-up comedian, actress, producer, and writer Zesty Meyers is Boston's fastest bike messenger--caffeine fueled, wise-cracking and reckless--accustomed to hurtling through Boston's kamikaze streets at breakneck speed, always just a bumper or car door away from disaster. Will Meyers is Zesty's father, Beantown's former backroom poker king and political fixer, who is suffering from Alzheimer's and a growing dread that the Big Dig carving its way through some of Boston's toughest neighborhoods will expose the bodies and secrets he'd assumed were buried forever. When the heist of an armored truck goes violently wrong, Zesty is forced to navigate Beantown's gritty underworld of gangsters and blood money, desperately trying to outrace his family's criminal past and stay alive in a changing city where death loiters on every corner and the odds of survival have narrowed to pulling a straight flush on the river"-- Provided by publisher.
