Army of One: Introducing Joe Beck

By Alastair Brown

The first book in the Joe Beck series. Ex-cop turned outlaw private eye, Joe Beck, is in McAllen, Texas, for the funeral of an old friend who, he heard, took his own life.

He bumps into a beautiful escort named Sapphire and makes plans to spend the night with her...that is, before they're abducted at gun point and bundled into the back of a black SUV by three men they've never seen before. Three men who know a whole lot more about Joe Beck's dead friend than they ought to.
