Just past the Philadelphia city limits there are a cluster of neighborhoods no one on the outside pays much attention to. It’s a nice place to live, with ballfields and takeout joints around every corner. The people who’ve raised their families for generations in the rowhomes and brick houses teach their kids to work hard and keep out of trouble.
But some people aren’t interested in staying out of trouble. There are fortunes to be made in the backstreets and shady barrooms, if you can stay alive long enough to get your hands on it. These are four stories of restless souls from this forgotten place who struck out from the safe path and traveled down a long, dark road.

About the Author
Jason Ryan Dale is a writer of character-driven crime stories living on the East Coast of the United States.
Dale on why crime fiction;
“There is a paradox in every crime, and therefore in every crime story. Stealing, murdering, and running a con job are all acts of betrayal. Yet, to do them well requires a small group of people who are loyal to each other. It is a beguiling contradiction that can play out in an infinite number of ways.”
Dale describes his influences, who are an eclectic mix;
“John le Carre is my favorite author. His plots are always exciting, yet his character development is always strong. Elmore Leonard I admire for his humor and his sense for life's absurdity. His characters are always trying to bring their lives in order and only succeed in increasing the chaos, which I love. Robert E Howard uses the English language in ways nobody else does. Larry McMurtry is the best at capturing people's psychology. I feel like I know his characters so well I could carry on a conversation with any of them. Joseph Conrad is the writer I most revere, though I admit he gives me a headache sometimes.”
