Fatal Odds: A Novel (Knight and Devlin Thriller)

Danger escalates as Michael Knight and Lex Devlin enter into the defense of a Puerto Rican jockey charged with felony murder as a result of a fixed race at Boston’s Suffolk Downs.

As their investigation exposes the jockey’s role, they become embroiled in a conflict between two Puerto Rican crime gangs. One of these gangs is aligned for the first time with Boston’s Italian Mafia in tapping into almost limitless profits from the illicit trade of exotic and endangered species of wild animals captured in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil and smuggled through the shoreline of the Florida Keys.

Working to free their client and to prevent the brutal abuse of these vulnerable animals, Michael and Lex find themselves squarely in the crossfire of rival organized crime gangs from the barrio of Jamaica Plain, Boston, to the gang-dominated streets of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.

  1. An Exotic Read As always,Dobbyn makes reading his novels a delight for the hidden agendas contained therein.One,the illegal exotic animal trade, was covered in exquisite detail leaving me (and probably most readers) with the most up to date input on this horrific and growing criminal enterprise. 

  2. A Wow of a thriller! His best one yet I absolutely could not put this book down. John F. Dobbyn writes a thriller that begins on page number 1 and carries through until the final chapter. Having read all of author Dobbyn’s novels, I would list this as my all time favorite. It is simply riveting! Can’t wait until he turns out another. . .

  3. He’s done it again! Michael Knight has gotten himself in another “fix” and the adventures that follow are action-packed and a GREAT READ!!Excellent character development, with old “friends” showing up throughout the book.’VERY IMPRESSIVE!
