July 2012. Jimmy Harmon has uncovered a troubling connection between the work he has been doing for venture capitalist Anton Kreitzer and the ongoing danger that threatens his ex-girlfriend Robin Freeman. And digging through the secret papers of the mysterious real estate group implicated in these threats reveals little else. But in their quest to find more concrete evidence of wrongdoing, Jimmy and Robin may find themselves in far graver danger than either of them could anticipate.

Rated AD-PG, so parental guidance is suggested

Contains semi-adult language (“crap,” several uses of “damn” and associated variations, “dumbass,” several mentions of “hell,” “pissed,” and using JC’s name in vain), horse-race gambling, breaking and entering, threatening with a gun and various sharp-bladed implements, torturing a character for information, and vehicular assault.

July 2012. Having eluded his ill-intentioned pursuers with the help of skilled performance driver Eleanor Wallis, Jimmy Harmon meets up with his ex-girlfriend Robin. Upon learning that her involvement in the sequence of events that led to her coworkers’ disappearance remains undiscovered, Jimmy hatches a plan to recover the hidden documentation that may shed light on the group’s hidden motives… a plan that requires the assistance of a less-than-reputable acquaintance from his Las Vegas days.

Rated AD-PG, so parental guidance is suggested

Contains semi-adult language (two instances of “SOB,” severeal uses of “crap” or variants thereof, “screwed up,” “God” used as an exclamation, uses of “damn” and associated variations, use of JC’s name in vain, and two uses of “hell”), horse-race gambling (horse racing), a dead body, a surprisingly detailed depiction of identity theft, and trespassing.

July 2012. After accepting an unusual assignment from venture capitalist Anton Kreitzer — a commission shared with the enigmatic Eleanor Wallis and the overtly dramatic Ken Ford — Jimmy Harmon finds himself in the crosshairs of a vicious killer. Narrowly escaping his assailant, Harmon must scramble to stay ahead of his pursuer while ensuring his fellow assignees avoid similar — and potentially lethal — consequences.

Rated AD-PG, so parental guidance is suggested

Contains semi-adult language (one “SOB,” one “damn,” and two uses of “hell”), gambling (of the horse-track variety), malicious pistol-wielding, hand-to-hand violence, unlawful entry, the discovery of a dead body, evasion of legal authorities, and failure to properly obey the rules of the road (though seatbelts are thankfully employed).

July 2012. After finally joining in on the most exclusive private poker game in Los Angeles — a goal for which he may have ulterior motives — Jimmy Harmon works to help his former girlfriend Robin unearth the sinister forces that may be killing her coworkers… without rendering her their next victim. In the meantime, he takes on a mysterious assignment from venture capitalist Anton Kreitzer, once again encountering the brash hustler Ken Ford and the enigmatic yet alluring Eleanor Wallis.

Rated AD-PG, so parental guidance is suggested
Contains semi-adult language (several instances of “hell” and “damn” and variations thereof, “asshat,” JC’s name in vain, and “screw” in a non-explicit context), drinking of alcoholic beverages, gambling (poker and horse betting), discussion of breaking and entering, malicious threatening by pistol, and even more inscrutable Cockney dialect.

July 2012. After keeping a low profile for months in Los Angeles, poker player Jimmy Harmon at last has the opportunity to gain a seat at an exclusive high-stakes underground game — but before he can join in, he must contend with the return of his former girlfriend Robin, desperate for his help after being unwittingly drawn into a mystery that may have led to murder… a mystery that may have her next on the killer’s list.

Rated AD-PG, so parental guidance is suggested
Contains semi-adult language (a few instances of “crap,” “damn” and variations thereof, and “hell,” JC’s name in vain, “piss,” and “screw” in a non-explicit context), the depiction of the unpleasant consequences of drinking (enough rum to blind a pirate), actual drinking (beer, in the absence of a Screaming Viking), irresponsible pistol use, references to murder, gambling (maybe not poker, depending on your definition, but horse racing and proposition betting definitely count), and a virtually indecipherable Cockney dialect.
