Henry Hartman's Boondoggle Crisis

(The second book in the Off-the-Books Mystery series)
A novel by

From a ratty motel in Berlin, CT to a lagoon villa on Hilton Head, SC, newlyweds Syd and Henry are on one wild honeymoon...desperately seeking answers to why the mob is so determined to whack the new bride....

FBI Agent Henry Hartman is big, fat liar, a master of deception, and no one knows this better than his new wife and sidekick, Sydney Stansfield, the woman he roped into working on highly classified "off-the-books" operations.

On the run from the Boston mob, the couple flees. hiding out as best they can, trying to solve the dirty, little secret that has the Boyle family hiring a series of hit men.

Blackie Walsh, the ruthless gangster on trial, is determined to force Tom Boyle to fork over his $2 million, but the money's evaporated. That financial business that used to help fund IRA activities is now struggling after the bottom fell out of the money market.

Enter Syd's ex-husband, Matt Boyle, the guy she put through dental school. He's pretending she's a gold-digger, even as he plots to whack her. The family's money-laundering just gets dirtier and dirtier -- no amount of detergent can clean up this mess!

Changing cars like people change their socks, the couple drives a succession of vehicles -- everything from the beat-up decorating van to the shiny red Lincoln MKZ to the royal blue Mini Cooper clown car. They take shelter anywhere they can -- motel rooms, hotel rooms, cabin in the woods, condos, and even three villas, all while trying to enjoy their new status as married couple on the run.

Thank heavens for the new pound pooch they rescued from the Humane Society. They're bound to stay together for the sake of the dog, right? But everybody keeps threatening the tiny Maltese terrier, just to get to Syd. What gives?

As the action heats up, Syd is forced to face her biggest fears in a gator-laden lagoon, on a dark, chilly night in South Carolina...and again, when a deadly package keeps showing up on her doorstep, courtesy of a very determined hit man. When the finale finally arrives, it will leave you breathless, thanks to a killer out to use the Boston mob for cover for a very sinister game of intrigue.
