"Part Robert Parker, part Carl Hiaasen, Eddie Perlmutter is a high testosterone, no-nonsense detective with a tender core, and makes turning sixty a carnal, tropical ride." --Andrew Gross, bestselling author of The Blue Zone, on Boca Knights 

Since he arrived in sunny Florida, Eddie has survived a run-in with the Russian mafia and tangled with Boca’s own family of neo-Nazis. But crime and punishment in the land of the Early Bird Special is complicated. The Russians have fled . . . but their evil lingers on; and though the neo-Nazis’ junior thug is guilty, punishing him is a lot more complicated than Eddie thought it would be when he caught the little creep harassing decent folks in the name of white supremacy. And that’s just Eddie’s unfinished business. Helped by a reformed computer conman, he’s busier with new cases than he was in Boston, ranging from a mysteriously haunted elevator to a double kidnapping. He’s got cases with trails as far as Russia and Israel. Retirement, my foot.

Good thing he didn’t retire from matters of the heart . . . because the women won’t let him. Between his amorous adventures and his burgeoning sleuth business, the twists and turns of Eddie’s life make this an edge-of-your-seat, uproariously funny thriller . . .

Chapter 1

BOCA RATON—NOVEMBER 2005 TIME AND AGAIN

BING!! A bullet slammed into my right shoulder. BANG! A second bullet slugged my left leg. BOOM! A baseball bat bludgeoned both my knees and I went down. I was an easy target kneeling motionless in the snow and another bullet punched my right shoulder knocking me over. I fell on my side.

I struggled for consciousness.

My stomach was on fire.

Get up before it’s too late.

I struggled to my feet and opened my eyes. There was no blood, no wounds, and no snow.

Praise for Boca Mournings

In Boca Mournings, the incomparable Eddie Perlmutter returns for another wild and wicked thrill ride across Boca Raton and beyond. Steven Forman had a lot of fun writing this book and his fans will have even more fun reading it. I love this guy—and this series."
--Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of Impact

"Boca Mournings is a riotous, ribald look into the wacky world of South Florida.
Not since Carl Hiaasen at his peak has anyone captured the pothole-marred, driving impaired, and geriatric-dominated zaniness as well as the new master of the comic crime novel Steve Forman.  Forman's wit is as sharp as his prose and Eddie Perlmutter is the best hero of his kind since Donald Westlake's famed Dortmunder.  Side-splitting fun with a crackerjack plot added for good measure."
— Jon Land, bestsellling author of Strong Enough to Die

"Mystery fans who like their operatives macho with an offbeat sense of humor will certainly enjoy this book and look forward to the next in the series."
--Library Journal (on Boca Knights)

"Fast, funny, and incredibly wise, Boca Knights is a compulsive read that will make you want to live next door to its hero, Eddie Perlmutter, who is without a doubt one of the best new characters to appear on the literary horizon in years."
--Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Spymaster
