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 Missouri 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. Mink Eyes weaves murder, addiction, obsession, sex, and redemption into a fast-paced, compelling detective novel that also brings in themes of duty, fatherhood, friendship and love. Peter O'Keefe is a reluctant hero who struggles every day to choose in favor of life over death.
