“The Zero Tolerance Game


The odd couple of private investigators is back!

Frank Boff, the legendary DEA agent turned rogue P.I., teams up again with the volatile Emily Lynch, a six foot, alpha-female detective on suspension from the NYPD because of a drinking problem.

On a perfect summer day where seemingly nothing could go wrong, everything does. Boff walks his client to his car and is heading to retrieve his own vehicle, when he hears a tremendous explosion behind him. He looks back and is shocked to see his client’s car engulfed in flames.

Boff’s shock turns to anger as he realizes if he had been closer to the vehicle, he’d be dead now. He knows in an instant that whoever did this is going to pay. Big time.

When Boff gets home, he receives a phone call from an old high school buddy who was wrongfully convicted of murder and sent to prison for life at the age of seventeen.

Twenty-nine years later, his friend’s conviction has been overturned, and he’s being released with only one thought in mind: hire Boff to help find the real killer and punish him.

Faced with two murder cases, Boff needs a partner. With reluctance he turns to the combustible Lynch, who after her latest bout of binge drinking, finds herself homeless and sleeping in subways and shelters.

Inevitably, sparks fly between them as they struggle to solve two cases involving warring snipers on New York City rooftops, the world’s most ruthless drug cartel, corrupt federal agents, and caffeinated mobsters who’ll stop at nothing to get what they want.

In this second installment of the Boff-Lynch team, nothing is as it appears to be, and the truth is buried beneath layers of lies and deceit.
