Boca Knights

Steven M. Forman

Forge Books

In a debut novel sure to both excite passions and elicit laughter, a different kind of hero emerges in that most unlikely criminal hotbed: Boca Raton.

Eddie Perlmutter, whose early exploits are chronicled in the new mini e-book "Eddie the Kid" and is soon to return in the upcoming Forge hardcover BOCA DAZE, is capable of fighting with fearless frenzy, but only does so to defend the defenseless. Eddie’s career as a much-honored Boston cop has come to an end. At sixty, he’s still energetic and virile, but decades of harsh New England winters and collaring the pug-uglies of Boston’s underworld have taken their toll—especially on his knees. So what does a lonely, retired cop with arthritic knees do? Head to sunny Florida, of course.
Country-club politics and early-bird specials are a far cry from the street toughs, scuffles, and arrests of his former life. But some things never change. Instead of enjoying a relaxed, laid-back retirement, Eddie quickly discovers the darker side of Boca Raton’s endless sun and palm trees, where hate crimes, counterfeiting, and worse lurk beneath the deceptively calm surface of cushy retirement communities.

With his no-nonsense crime-fighting skills and roll-with-the punches attitude, Eddie hits Boca Raton like of a Nor’easter from Hell, fast, fresh, and unstoppable. A compulsively readable comic thriller with an egalitarian message that will inspire readers of all ages, Boca Knights will have readers in stitches and keep them on the edge of their seats. 

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

REVIEWS

Praise for Boca Knights

"With a wink and nod, the top cop urges Eddie to take on the city’s toughest criminals in near-vigilante fashion. What results is an entertaining mix of comedy and drama as Eddie squares off with an anti-Semitic hate group. Fortunately, Forman steers his geriatric hero clear of the buffoonery and sentimentality that often comes with the territory in this subgenre."
Booklist
 
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
 
"Those with a cockeyed sense of humor will find much to like in this parody of a cop caper."
--Publishers Weekly

"Boca Knights goes down faster than a frosty double mojito on a hot tropical night."
 --Lincoln Child, New York Times bestselling author of Deep Storm

"Steve Forman strafes the south Florida scene with Boca Knights, an outrageously funny mystery novel with a raft of offbeat characters and prose that moves trippingly off the pen. His main man, Eddie Perlmutter, is a character for the ages. Carl Hiaasen, watch your back."
--Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of Blasphemy

“Steve Forman’s fun, funky twist of the private eye novel is entertaining and takes dead aim on Boca Raton with devastating results.” 
--James O. Born, author of Burn Zone
