Since his father’s murder, Kevin Davenport has worked every odd job known to man to support himself and his widowed mother. But when he signs on to haul beef at Kosher World Meat Factory, what he thought was just another lousy part-time gig turns out to be the opportunity of a lifetime.
Kevin discovers that the meatpacking business is a front for a treacherous criminal syndicate. While working at the corrupt meat factory he finds out who killed his father and now all bets are off. Kevin has the chance to settle the score and he’ll tackle any job—club fighting, bookmaking, even drug dealing—to earn his revenge. But can he do it all without sacrificing his soul…or, God forbid, flunking out of school?
Praised by bestselling author James Patterson as “a tightly-wound, well-written mystery that I read in one sitting,” Odd Jobs introduces a bold and edgy new voice to the ranks of American crime fiction.
Meet the Author
Ben Lieberman earned a bachelors degree in Journalism from the University of Maryland. While his background is scattered with some bizarre odd jobs in his youth, he did manage a more conventional livelihood as an adult. For over twenty years, Lieberman worked in institutional sales and trading for some of the most prestigious and well-known banks in the world. Ben worked at JPMorgan, Merrill Lynch, Union Bank of Switzerland, and he was at Lehman Brothers at the very end during the financial meltdown of 2008. ODD JOBS is not about finance, but the trading floor did provide a ruthless, competitive and urgent environment that Lieberman was able to transfer into an exciting, darkly-humorous and award winning debut crime thriller. ODD JOBS is like The Sopranos meeting ANIMAL HOUSE. Lieberman currently resides in Westchester, New York.
