Daytona Beach Shores, FL (PRWEB) June 13, 2008
Capital Press announces the forthcoming release of Last Call by novelist JD Seamus. Last Call will be available nationwide in September.
A no-holds-barred tale about life, loyalty, love, and libations, Last Call (Capital Press, ISBN: 978-0-9802256-0-0, $14.95) is modern crime fiction with a fresh new twist.
He's hardly a saint, but Jimmie Collins believes in putting family first. Since his "legitimate income" barely makes ends meet, he supplements it by fencing things that fall off the back of trucks. He's amassed a small fortune, and with the help of his Mafia connections, nets a huge score and buys the bar he has always dreamed of owning in midtown Manhattan.
With his ailing wife and disabled daughter tucked safely away in Florida, Jimmie tends to his other family: his longtime and loyal bar patrons. But for the man used to happy hour and high spirits, life is about to take a heartbreaking turn. When Jimmie is diagnosed with cancer, he is forced to prepare for the inevitable. In order to ensure that his family is provided for financially, Jimmie is going to have to act fast to find someone who can go overseas and retrieve his laundered fortune.
That someone turns out to be a bookie who insists that he is "just the right guy for the job." But the money never comes through and it isn't until after Jimmie has died that his friends realize something is amiss. Who took Jimmie's money, and why?
As this band of characters sets out to find answers and right this terrible wrong, they'll rally their forces to do what any good friends would do: save the day. Through a mixture of fierce loyalty and dumb luck, these friends will risk life and limb to provide one final, fitting toast to the man who saw them through thick and thin. If this close-knit cadre succeeds, someone will be coming up empty when it's time for last call.
One part hard-hitting crime, one part mystery, with a splash of action, adventure, and humor, Last Call is resplendent with colorful characters and spiced with tension. Not for the faint of heart, Last Call is a spirited novel that raises the bar on modern crime fiction.
