Book two of The Jimmy O’Reilly Mystery Series opens with twenty-seven bodies discovered on a back road near O’Reilly’s small Kansas town of Chisholm. He assumes the authorities will discover who they are and why they were killed. Like many of his assumptions, it is a false one.

Instead, O’Reilly himself, wrestling with his own demons from the past, is reluctantly pulled into the investigation, only to be immersed in the treacherous dealings of political corruption, human traffickers and the Japanese Mafia.

With his wry sense of humor and own flawed perceptions, O’Reilly relies once again on his side-kicking Aikido master friend, Laura Bascome, for aid and comfort. Tireseas, his prophetic blind Ornate Box Turtle, is back to offer more insights, clues and mystical visions from O’Reilly’s ancestors and the ancient Irish myths, as is Janie, his teenaged housekeeper.

Fast paced and action-packed, yet filled with a sense of place, humor and insightful musings, it pushes the reader into the grimy underworld of human flesh, bought, sold, traded and mutilated.
