Leverage cvr“You either find my kid, or lose your own.”

It’s an offer private dick Frank Via – reformed mobster and failed father – can’t refuse, when his former capo summons him to find his estranged stepdaughter, who has disappeared with the Mob’s books.


Leverage is a character-driven, action-packed thriller peppered with the kind of adult language, realistic violence, and black humor that makes Mob stories so exciting—and so much fun . . .
