And Eddie's paranoid old friend Tony needs help eliminating a rival drug dealer . . . and planning a big-money casino heist that's anything but a sure bet. Now Eddie is wanted for murder, under the gun, and running out of time. And with his luck, he'll live just long enough to lose it all . . .

Daniel Serrano was born and raised by his mother in the tough streets of New York and Chicago. The eldest of three boys, Serrano witnessed gangs, crime, drugs, poverty, and even murder, as his family lived the urban Latino struggle. After drifting through menial jobs for years, he enrolled in the Weekend Program at Shimer College and studied the classics.

Serrano went on to earn a law degree from St. John's University. As an attorney, he has spent the bulk of his career advising politicians and alleged criminals. Daniel lives in New York City with his family and is currently at work on his next book.
  • "This book is the truth, the truth about getting out of prison and trying to turn your life around. Your best friends become your biggest problems, and your old enemies do all they can to do you in. Eddie Santiago was between a rock and a hard place, but he managed to make it through. Unpredictable, with non-stop action, this is one of the most satisfying books I've ever read. Daniel wrote about the drugs, the sex and senseless-violence in an honest and new way. Congratulations Daniel Serrano... You earned that buck like a mutha...."
