Anthony Award Finalist: A skip tracer chases an embezzler to Florida—and finds herself entangled with bikers and the IRS—in this thriller “packed with humor” (Booklist).
With her low-level law-enforcement career on the rocks, it’s make-it-or-break-it time for zaftig Loretta Kovacs. She’s been assigned to the ragtag Parole Violators Search Unit, a.k.a. the Jump Squad. All her buttons are pushed when she goes undercover as a desperate dieter at a Florida fat farm in order to nab an embezzler who’s a perfect size 2. But untangling the mysteries surrounding this case is going to be harder than passing up a pastry . . .

“A divertingly comic entertainment with a bittersweet bite.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Devil’s Food is good, grainy crime writing, a little bit like New Jersey’s answer to Elmore Leonard.” —The Advocate (Greenwich, CT)
