Overview

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.
