Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Deets Shanahan, the septuagenarian PI from Indianapolis, is back in another fast-paced crime adventure. It starts with a mysterious call from Deets' old army commander, who wants to hire him. Against his better judgement, Deets agrees to meet the commander in Puerto Vallarta to hear the details. It's no garden variety case. Deets learns that his commander has turned whistle-blower on a highly secret "security group" that aims to overthrow governments and take over the world. Realizing this case is weirder and far more dangerous than he anticipated, Deets decides to pull out, only to find he's involved whether he wants to be or not. There's also a second plot involving Deets' long time friend, Howie Cross, whose wacky girlfriend has left him five-year-old Myra. When the wacky girlfriend is kidnapped, it's up to Howie to find her. The two disparate plots exist happily side by side, and both feature enough action and suspense to keep readers engaged. Tierney's spirited writing, snappy dialogue, and wry wit add the final touches to this entertaining read.

    Another great Deets Shanahan story!

    It is always a pleasure to read these Deets Shanahan and Howie Cross stories - they have mystery, intrigue and the love story between Deets and Maureen. I find myself getting wrapped up in the Deets character and wish him to stay strong and healthy. I enjoy these characters and their stories and always look forward to the next book.
