Washington, DC, is a town full of powerful people hiding ugly secrets. The blackmailer, a renaissance man, keeps his promise: Pay me, and I'll return the juicy evidence I have against you, and you'll never hear from me again.
Jack McCall, a former operative for the US intelligence community and now a private investigator, hunts this wily and diabolical madman. His victims, having paid and not been further extorted, are reticent to admit ever having been blackmailed. McCall's efforts to solve the case are assisted by Nora Burke, his sexy assistant who also helps Jack recover from the loss of his wife, and Max Logan, a retired detective of Irish-Scottish parentage.
Chock-full of colorful characters from the worlds of politics, art, and the media, The Blackmail Club is a cerebral, physical, and sexy five-course gourmet meal of mystery. Sit back and fasten your seat belt, relax, and be entertained while you try to fit together the final pieces before you reach the end.

Five Star Noir...
I like David Bishop. I especially enjoyed his Maddie Richards series of two books so far. Those books have received very little attention and I’m not sure why. If you like a good mystery with a great narrator (Tanya Eby) then you really should give them a try.
Anyway, this book is very different from the Maddie Richards books. I have not listened to book one but this book worked out well as a stand alone. This is a noir type mystery along the Sam Spade (who is mentioned more than once) kind of story line.
This book has it all. It’s a procedural, murder mystery with (obviously blackmail), betrayal of family and friends and an ending that was completely unexpected.
Edoardo Ballerini does a fantastic job narrating.
