George Benet. The Hoodlums (Stark House, $9.99). 

Kirk Wagner has been released from prison and is back in the Windy City. They always said he was lucky, so why is he broke, with no prospects, and no girl? He did his time, didn’t rat out Martin, kept him in the clear. But how he’d like to bust Martin if he shows his face again. Kirk just wants some of the good life—a new Cadillac, nice clothes, expensive cigars… and Jeannie. But they’re all just out of his reach.Then Martin shows up, and offers Kirk a job fronting fake bills, and suddenly Kirk decides to give him another chance. Martin always did know how to pull in the cash. Maybe now Kirk can get somewhere, maybe get Jeannie to quit stripping and the two of them head for New York. Kirk doesn’t want much—he just wants it all.
