Meet Flash Madigan 


Flash Madigan - Book 1

They’re in over their heads.


And the only way out is a high-risk scam that could get them all killed…


Flash Madigan has a problem. Desperate to get out from under the Russian mob before the cops roll up the whole operation, he “borrows” nine hundred grand to bet on a fixed sporting event. But when the wrong team wins and the money goes up in smoke, he’s in a race against time before his sadistic boss finds out it's missing.

Partnering with a washed-up burglar and the con man who tipped him to the game gone bad, he plots to blackmail a retired Colombian drug smuggler. But when it turns out they’ve seriously underestimated their mark’s fondness for violence, selling each other out seems like the best way to survive.


With the Russian mob, the cops, and the FBI closing in, can three small-time hoods stop double-crossing each other long enough to stay alive and hit a $10-million score?


Proper Villains is a fast-paced, darkly funny crime thriller. If you like snappy dialogue, schemes gone bad, and plenty of twists and turns, then you’ll love Dale Nelson’s page-turning caper.
