Summary

It is an obsession that has haunted Nick Malick for seven years - to avenge the murder of his young son. In his gut Malick knows who did it. But the psychopath is in prison for another crime, scheduled to be released in a year. All Malick has to do is wait...and survive.
The tragedy cost Malick his marriage and his career. Now he scrapes by as a PI in the blue-collar town of Cain City, West Virginia. His latest case tasks him with finding a young woman gone missing. Seems simple enough. But when his investigation exposes a link between a corrupt police force and a drug gang from Detroit, Cain City explodes. And Malick finds himself dead center.
Turns out when there's no one to trust and a whole lot of people want you dead, survival and revenge aren't so easy.
Cash City is Jonathan Fredrick's debut novel, heralding a tough new voice in crime fiction.

There's Pure Gold in Cash City

Every so often I like to try a new author and / or narrator. Sometimes you strike gold and other times hours of your life drift past in grey torpor. With Jonathan Fredrick's Cash City read by Ari Fliakos we're definitely talking about a golden aura permeating my ears. It's very much in the classic style of the downtrodden PI working against the odds but with an edge due to Malick's vengeful purpose.

The narration is near-perfect for that style and the combination of author and narrator produces some powerful moments. A discussion with the father of the murdered girl as that case concludes will tug at the heart strings and the final decisive encounter for Malick builds fantastic tension and delivers some chillingly cruel intent before an exciting conclusion.

This is a very satisfying production and one that deserves a decent audience.

New Hard-Boiled Crime Fiction with Heart

What made the experience of listening to Cash City the most enjoyable?

A Classic Noir Detective, in the mold of the great Phillip Marlowe and Sam Spade in a Present Day Setting with a modern twist: Despite his hardened, tough guy veneer, "Cash City's" Nick Malick is a tragic, deeply wounded hero, whose cynicism covers a wellspring of raw emotion. Jonathan Fredrick explores the dark underbelly of present-day corruption and the illegal drug trade epidemic that has infected even the most seemingly innocent in mid-America's heartland. Fredrick has a terse, compelling writing style reminiscent of Elmore Leonard...but with more visceral passion and poignancy.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cash City?

Nick's relationship with the kid, the wry humor of Jonathan Fredrick's dialogue, the hero's heartbreaking grief over the loss of his son - His climactic confrontation with the killer who destroyed his family and everything Nick ever loved. Despite the final, cathartic battle, "Cash City" ends on a funny, uplifting, and bittersweet note of Hope for the Future.

What about Ari Fliakos’s performance did you like?

Fliako has the perfect, tough guy voice for the flawed, sarcastic Nick Malick, while seamlessly and naturally slipping into the voices of the other characters and supporting players. Everything plays very Real - Never a forced moment.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

When the American Dream turns into an Obsessive Nightmare...the only cure is Revenge.

Any additional comments?

By transforming the traditional Private Detective into an emotional Present-Day hero in a deeply-layered plot that reflects current 21st Century problems, Jonathan Fredrick has created a fresh new take on classic crime fiction. I look forward to reading the further adventures of Nick Malick in an exciting, heartfelt sequel to "Cash City"
