For Four Million Bucks, This Ex-Con Is Willing To Take The Biggest Risk Of His Life
Asheville, NC, March 22, 2018 ― Career criminal Clint Kennedy, a bisexual man with a background in finance and shady deals, moved to Mexico for a fresh start. While it's not in his plan to land in a Mexican jail, this adrenaline junkie would do just about anything for the right price – and since the right price for this job is four million, he's willing to risk it!
From his nighttime prowls through Mexico's seedy backstreets, to the thunderous roar of the bull ring, to the gleaming towers of Miami's most prestigious banks — Clint lived for each new adrenaline rush, even if jail was almost inevitable.
In Stained Fortune, the new suspense thriller from Joe Calderwood, we meet Clint Kennedy, a career criminal who grew up poor alongside friends with money. And now it was his turn to enjoy the good life. He will do anything to make money, and sometimes he'll pay. But that's a risk he's more than willing to take.
Following his first prison sentence for running an escort business in Miami, Clint moves to Mexico for a fresh start. A chance meeting with a Mexican bullfighter who also happens to be a drug kingpin sends Clint down a path toward his biggest payday ever.
And all he has to do is move millions of dollars, undetected, from Mexico to a United States bank account. All without raising suspicion. All free and clear. And he would keep four million of it. But the tiniest mistake could cost him everything.

Well, I've always wondered how people laundered money, and after reading Stained Fortune, I know. A little something to tickle your fancy...I once laundered money (by mistake) when I put my trousers in the washing machine and there was a £10 note still in the pocket.
About the book: I felt I really got to know the characters very well and so wanted Clint Kennedy, the main character, to succeed in his pursuits even though it was wrong of him to do what he was doing. Clint is a kind of Marmite character, you either love him or hate him, I loved him. For a first book it was engaging, not too much description (but at the same time such attention to detail) and it flowed easily. My kind of book. It's what I call a page turner. All of the characters were easy to follow and I could picture them as though I was watching them on a film. This book has more twists than a Pasta Twirl.
