Hit and Run

(The ninth book in the Lt. Joe Dante series)
A novel by

Detective Joe Dante lives in a downtown loft and hangs with an uptown crowd. A cop who doesn't act, talk, or play like other cops, Dante's got Brooklyn-bred street smarts and a half-finished Ph.D. dissertation on his bookshelf. But when a man is struck down by a car outside a posh Manhattan hotel, Dante is plunged into a world like no other he's ever seen.

The victim was a corporate executive. The killer was a hit-and-run driver. And when Dante and his team investigate the accident, they find a billion-dollar stock-market deal and the tracks of a Wall Street financier gone missing from his Sutton Place co-op.

Now Dante is putting together the jagged pieces of a puzzle of sex, money, ambition, and high-tech fraud. It's a hunt that will take him from the pinnacle of high finance to Manhattan's meanest streets. Because Detective Joe Dante is chasing a man who has a thirty-eight-million-dollar motive for murder--multiple murder--and the cunning to get away wit
