Ryan and Jake were the two Major League-bound rivals on their high school baseball team. Until Ryan hurt his pitching arm and landed a Pds. 10 dollar an hour life as a house painter. Lucky Jake made it all the way, and he and his Pds. 10 million signing bonus are heading back for a homecoming weekend. But he's got a nasty surprise in store: Ryan is involved in an intense, addictive relationship with Jake's fiance Christina, who now faces a choice between love in a Brooklyn tenement or a heartless marriage on Easy Street. Lights Out is vintage Jason Starr, razor sharp crime writing.
