TAMPA, Fla. - Nov. 1, 2017 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that THE DEVIL AT YOUR DOOR, the third and final book in the Lars and Shaine crime trilogy by Eric Beetner, will be published on February 12, 2018 in trade paperback and ebook formats. Simultaneously, the first two books in the series, THE DEVIL DOESN'T WANT ME and WHEN THE DEVIL COMES TO CALL, will be reissued in new trade paperback and ebook formats.


Lars and Shaine have returned to a quiet life on the islands, but for Lars there is unfinished business. When he gets information that will lead him to exact revenge on behalf of his young protégé, the young woman he's grown to think of as a daughter, he decides to take action in secret.

When he lands in a hospital Shaine is called in from a thousand miles away and she must take the lead in the last job of Lars' storied career of death for hire.

Facing his own aging body, Lars struggles to take a back seat to the youngster he has trained in his image. They'll face a local drug boss along with an old enemy as they work to fire the last bullet they'll ever need to—before one finds them first.
