Another Wyatt book, another "for pleasure" reread.

From the Blurb:

Wyatt is broke - and angry.  The Mesics took his money a year ago.  It's time to get it back.

The Outfit has other plans.  They want Wyatt dead.  $40,000 is a small price to pay to make it happen.

Opening Lines:

The stranger appeared just after lunch on day one of Wyatt's operation against the Mesics.

Blurb from the book

Nine tautly plotted stories of crime and detection ranging from the darkly dangerous to the frankly comical.  All with young adult central characters - some authors have taken their own characters back to their childhood - others have created completely new characters.
