|About the Book:
In KINGS OF MIDNIGHT, cool-headed professional thief Crissa Stone is looking for one more big score, enough to bribe her lover's way out of prison and reclaim the young daughter she once gave up. Benny Roth is an old-school wiseguy, still on the run after the bloody fallout from the 1978 Lufthansa heist, in which six armed men walked out of Kennedy Airport with some $8 million in untraceable cash. That money's been missing all these years, but now Benny thinks he knows where it is, and Crissa may be just the person to help him get it ... if a murderous gang boss with a score to settle doesn't get there first.
About Wallace Stroby:

A Long Branch native, Stroby's a lifelong resident of the Jersey Shore. His debut novel, "The Barbed-Wire Kiss," which The Washington Post called "a scorching first novel ...full of attention to character and memory and, even more, to the neighborhoods of New Jersey," was a finalist for the 2004 Barry Award for Best First Novel.
