Nick Forte Book 6

Now available

Nick Forte has lost his detective agency and makes ends meet doing background checks and other paperwork. He pays for everything else through jobs he takes for cash and without any written contract. What starts out as a simple investigation into a traffic accident exposes Forte to people who have truly lost everything and have no viable hope of reclaiming their lives. That doesn’t sit well with Forte, leading him and his friend Goose Satterwhite to take action that ends more violently than anyone expected.


Praise for Off the Books

“The return of Chicago private detective Nick Forte, the tough protagonist of two Shamus Award nominated novels, is well worth the wait. Nick’s latest escapade… will surely earn additional praise for the acclaimed series.”
—J.L. Abramo, Shamus Award-winning author of Chasing Charlie Chan
“Nick Forte reminds me of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser: a PI with a finely tuned sense of justice who doesn’t take anyone’s s***. Any fan of hardboiled detective fiction is in for a helluva ride.”
—Chris Rhatigan, former publisher of All Due Respect Books
“Six years since his last appearance, the return of Dana King’s no-nonsense Nick Forte is cause to celebrate… As tough and unsentimental as Forte himself, Off the Books delivers all the action, acute observations, and wise-cracks required to satisfy that old-school PI itch. Now we just need King to not make us wait so long for the next one.”
—James D.F. Hannah, Shamus-winning author of Because the Night and Behind the Wall Of Sleep
