I don’t know if this is a first effort but regardless it was very good. The story centers on a divorced, private eye, O’Keefe, his attorney friend Harrigan and a mink farm ponzi scheme.
O’Keefe is hired by some stockholders of the mink farm to find out why their money has disappeared. He discovers there is more to the mink farm than meets the eye.
Harrigan and O’Keefe are lifelong friends who aspired to be metaphoric Knights of the Grail as alter boys. Their plans for life did not pan out in the manner they were hoping. A sub theme of the book is their dissatisfaction with their choices and wishes they had taken the road less traveled.
Tag, a femme fatale, who is up to her neck in the nefarious activities of the mink farm, discovers there are a few chinks in her cynical shell. Chinks that O’Keefe hopes to pry into full blown armor failure.
The plot was good and intricate enough to keep my interest.
The characters were recognizable, larger than life versions of folks we all know.
I enjoyed the book and recommend it.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
