Seth Harwood: Jack Wakes Up

Jack Palms has been clean and sober for three years. Things have been going well enough, but when he takes a job showing some out-of-town big shots around, all hell breaks loose and people start dropping dead. That might have something to do with the fact that the big shots are actually former KGB agents turned drug dealers. Suddenly there's a hoard of people out to get Jack, including a shady nightclub owner who has a small army at his disposal, an enforcer the size of a mountain, a beautiful bartender who’s serving up more than drinks and a homicide cop who isn't playing fair. See what happens next when debut crime writer Seth Harwood reads from Jack Wakes Up today at 4:30 p.m. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet.
