A Firing Offense, Paperback


The first in the Nick Stefanos trilogy from one of the acclaimed writers of THE WIRE. Advertising director Nick Stefanos is well acquainted with the seedy side of the electronics business - blow-out sales and shady deals were his life on the shop floor.

So when a stockboy disappears, it's not news. Just another metalhead off chasing a dream of big money and easy living. But the boy's grandfather asks Nick for help, and as Nick starts digging, he quickly uncovers a much darker and more violent truth.

One that will lead him to the alcohol-soaked and drug-riddled underbelly of Washington DC.
