Eddie the Kid: A Tale of Eddie Perlmutter

Steven M. Forman

Forge Books

Boston,1974: before Eddie Perlmutter was the Boca Knight, he was a Boston cop, short in stature but long on courage and conviction. In Eddie the Kid he comes up against a mysterious assassin and some not-so-mysterious thuggery. Mobsters are dropping like flies, and Boston seethes with racial tension as the busing of school children begins. It will require all his police training, toughness and detection skills to keep the city from boiling over in violence, and to find the gunman before he kills again.

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