No One Rides For Free


Author: Larry Beinhart
While chasing a white-collar snitch, a New York PI finds himself embroiled in a murderous conspiracy reaching deep into the federal government in this Edgar Award–winning mystery
 
In his short time as partner at a prestigious Wall Street law firm, Edgar Wood manages to steal $8 million. To avoid the hell of three years in prison, Wood turns witness for the Securities and Exchange Commission, whose mysterious investigation rankles the top brass at Wood’s old firm. Desperate to learn what Wood’s telling the feds, the remaining partners hire Tony Cassella, a private investigator whose past includes a year or so at Yale University’s law school, a stint as a corrections officer, and a cocaine addiction. Though he’s recently gotten his life back on track, Cassella is drawn to trouble, and can imagine no greater thrill than tangling with the SEC.
 
When Wood—under witness protection—is killed in a mugging, Cassella smells conspiracy. His hunt for the real crooks will leave no one safe, no matter how blue their blood.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Larry Beinhart including rare images from the author’s personal collection.
