WALKING MONEY by JAMES O. BORN
For more than seventeen years with the U.S. Marshals
Service, DEA, and Florida Department of Law Enforcement,
Jim Born has seen just about everything Florida crime and
criminals can throw at him, and he's put it all into as
entertaining and accomplished a first thriller as you'll
find anywhere this year.
State cop Bill Tasker has had problems in the past, but
nothing compared to what's about to happen to him. A
satchel with a million and a half in skimmed money is about
to go walking. A phony community activist has decided to
cash in, but a local FBI agent also has his eyes on the
prize, a key witness gets murdered, and it's Tasker who
ends up framed for the whole thing. Soon, other people
become seduced by the cash as well, and as the bag passes
from hand to hand and the body count mounts, Tasker
realizes it's all up to him. If he doesn't retake his life
right now . . . someone's going to do it for him.
Filled with a rich array of characters, a constantly
twisting plot, and an authenticity so deep you can't help
wondering how much of this is actually true, Walking Money
is indeed proof that "Jim Born is the real thing."
