T.W. Barton How the Lee Child Jack Reacher series isn't on this list I will never know. These are must reads.

I am searching for a specific crime book. There was a library in the hotel and i read it there but forgot the name of the book, characters etc. !

The book starts with the story of an immigrant in the usa and he escaping from the police and he has a stilletto and kills one train driver but he suffers and injury and is limping since then. Then the book skips back to "present", the immigrant has built a successful business through extortion. He owns many "supermarket" chains. Key traits: Stiletto and limping.

The book goes on with bombs planted by the servants of the immigrant and killing police (i think). I think his organisation is called black hand.

I also remember that a very rich guy and the immigrant team up. I think they extort a construction company because they want to build it to launder money.

Then i remember that the young "detective" and the immigrant with teh limp and the evil politician / rich Guy fight on a yacht and they are yacht icing.

I think the main protagonist is a college student who was at the time completing his studies in some related field to police work at a reputational university.

The book series is somewhat famous and i dont know how but i found the book title a year ago after searching for it on google but this time i can not find it anymore.

Does anybody know which book this is?
