"Ex-husband, ex-army specialist, ex-everything, Matt Langley has come to New Orleans to lose his past. He's not looking for trouble --- just to make ends meet. But when Matt takes a six-bucks-an-hour security guard job on the waterfront, trouble finds him the first night, leaving him with a bullet hole and a lot of nasty questions. Before he knows what's happened, he's up to his ass in alligators. Smugglers, cops, the Feds, and a gang of Bourbon Street punks all want a piece of him. And the most dangerous of all is a smooth-talking little gal who has nothing to lose and everything to hide..."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
