THE CRIMINAL NEXT DOOR, a new, humorous, crime thriller from Troy Cook, the award-winning author of 47 RULES OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE BANK ROBBERS and THE ONE MINUTE ASSASSIN. What if your ex-husband is trying to kill you and the only one who can save you is the criminal next door? To protect her daughter and herself from her steroid shooting, pro ballplayer of an ex-husband, Alex enlists the help of her new neighbor, an exciting and dangerous outlaw who is the leader of a band of thieves. And though Alex doesn't want to admit it, she finds that the thieves who are slightly off key and a motley bunch are far more likeable and not nearly as dangerous as her ex-husband. Unfortunately, the thieves have problems of their own trying to stay ahead of the cops and a wealthy congressman with a grudge. But Alex worries that she's traded one giant problem for another because the big secret she's been keeping, the one that her ex would kill her to get, is also something every thief would want to know. But everyone has problems, right?
