About The Book

From the bestselling author of The Devil’s Necktie and Blond Cargo comes the latest title in the Jack Bertolino series.

Retired inspector Jack Bertolino straddles two perilous worlds. Known for his impeccable police work, Jack has also done a priceless favor for an infamous Mafia Don: he saved the gangster’s kidnapped daughter from being sold into the sex trade, and brought her safely home.

In Jack’s line of work, he can’t help but have friends—and enemies—on both sides of the law.

So when FBI agent Luke Hunter goes missing after a deep undercover assignment with that same mob boss, the FBI calls Jack in looking for a favor. With his connections and skills, Jack’s the only man for the job: find Luke Hunter, dead or alive.

The mobster operates an illegal gambling yacht in international waters off of Southern California, and when Luke went missing, so did half a million dollars of the mob’s money. As Jack dives into the case, he’ll learn the true mystery isn’t the agent’s disappearance, but something far more ominous...

The Fourth Gunman is a sizzling action-packed thriller that will keep you turning pages until the explosive finale.

Raves and Reviews

The Fourth Gunman, by John Lansing, takes the reader on a nonstop luge-ride through the mobbed-up underbelly of West L.A. and the darkest fears of the modern world. This taut, unnerving dirty bomb of a novel is guaranteed to keep you up all night.

– Craig Faustus Buck, Award-winning author of Go Down Hard

In The Fourth Gunman, John Lansing gifts us with a complex “Who Dunit?”, which becomes a mystifying “What The Hell Did They Do?”, which turns into a tension packed “What Can Jack Bertolino Possibly Do To Stop It?” John Lansing is a master story teller, at the top of his game, and as always, a delight to read.

– Gordon Dawson, author of Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia, and Purgatory.

Hands-down, John Lansing is one of the top thriller writers in the business today, and Jack Bertolino is amongst the strongest fictional characters you’ll ever meet. If you’re comfortable sitting on the edge of your seat, flipping through one page after the next deep into the night, then The Fourth Gunman is right up your dark alley.

– Steven Manchester, #1 bestselling author of The Rockin’ Chair and Ashes

The exuberant characters and swift pace will thrill new and returning readers.
