October 1986—the tarnished heart of the “Greed is Good” decade. Private detective Peter O’Keefe is a physically scarred and emotionally battered Vietnam Vet. Hired by his childhood best friend, ace attorney Mike Harrigan, O’Keefe investigates what appears to be merely a rinky-dink mink farm Ponzi scheme in the Ozarks. Instead, O’Keefe finds himself snared in a vicious web of money laundering, cocaine smuggling, and murder—woven by a mysterious mobster known as “Mr. Canada.” Also caught in Mr. Canada’s web is the exquisite Tag Parker, who might be the girl of O’Keefe’s dreams—or his nightmares.
Noir meets Arthurian romance as a modern knight errant (both on an errand and “in err”) rides forth to rescue a beautiful queen beset by dragons—and to save himself in the quest.

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.
