Derek Weaver’s a junkie.
He’s also homeless and jobless and into his dealer for way more cash than he can hope to repay. So when he’s given an ultimatum by the regional heroin supplier—commit a home invasion and steal enough jewelry to cover that man’s debt or take a one-way trip into the Atlantic on a lobster boat—he makes the only possible choice.
But things go sideways and Derek soon finds himself a multiple murderer on the run from both law enforcement and the mob. Trapped in a diner, using his own brother as a hostage to prevent police from storming the building, Derek begins to realize the only way out of a hopeless situation may come from facing down ancient demons he’s long ignored.
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Allan Leverone comes a noir/crime novella crackling with suspense. Chasing China White explores the limits of blood relationships, family ties, and whether some people’s crimes place them beyond all hope of redemption.
