Mink Eyes, by author Dan Flanigan a fast-paced, action-packed book that is hard to put down. The book is a fairly quick and exciting read. It follows the story of private detective Peter O’Keefe. While trying to deal with his own trauma from being in the Vietnam War. During an investigation he finds himself swept up in in a complicated case. He started out thinking it was simple favor for a friend, but it turns into a web of money laundering, cocaine smuggling, and murder. The story is really fun, and a thrilling read from beginning to end. Peter O’Keefe is a complex and sympathetic character. His trauma and history provide him with a lot of depth as he tries to work through it. It is also an important trauma to acknowledge, and Flanigan does a good job of showing this. I really liked the relationship between Peter and his daughter Kelly. It added a sweet and charming layer to the story and further gave depth to Peter’s character. The romance plotline in the book was intriguing and fun amidst the dark murder aspects of the story. I also loved the 80’s setting and all the ways in which Flanigan created that world visually for the reader with interesting descriptions and clever references. Flanigan did an excellent job of creating a unique and engaging story. I was captivated within the first chapter, and I found the twists throughout the book to be both interesting and surprising. If you love to read thriller romance stories that have a noir feel, then I would definitely recommend checking this book out.
