The Crossing, by Brendan Dubois
So a trio of mobsters decide to slip out of the country a few hours ahead of an indictment. A seaplane lands them on an island on a lake by the Canadian border. Now they just have to wait for their friend to arrive with a boat to slip them across.
Sure, there is a resident on the island, but she's just a beautiful young woman, grading papers. Surely she can't cause any trouble for three armed hoodlums.
What could possibly go wrong?
This is Mr. DuBois's fifth appearance in my best-of-the-week column. I guess I like his stuff.
