Bloody Palms by Ronald Tierney

Book Description

This is a "Deets Shanahan" mystery. When seventy-something Indianapolis PI Dietrich 'Deets' Shanahan receives a call from Jack Wenders, his former commanding officer in Korea, inviting him to Mexico to discuss a case, Shanahan accepts, hopeful that feisty girlfriend Maureen might join him and help him forget a particularly nasty case that almost got him killed. But Wenders' shadowy tactics put Shanahan on his guard - and rightly so: Wenders has become involved with a private security force that operates lawlessly across borders, without boundaries or limitations. And worse: their backing comes from within the top levels of the American government. Worse still: Wenders has blown the whistle and now wants out - using Shanahan's own identity to escape.Despite trying to walk away, Deets finds himself inextricably caught up in a world he doesn't understand and can't control, at the same time as trying to find the little girl who may or may not be the daughter of sometime colleague Howie Cross by an exotic dancer, who has witnessed a lot more than any four-year-old should have.

US Kirkus Review » At 71, Deets Shanahan (Asphalt Moon, 2007, etc.) might be ready to pack it in. But that's easier said than done.The disruptive phone call comes from the Indianapolis private eye's former commanding officer. I need you down in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, says ex-Major Jack Wenders, and he keeps on saying it until finally Deets caves. The beaches, after all, are famously pleasant, and Deets can envision his girlfriend Maureen joining him for a bit of a holiday once he firmly declines whatever errand Wenders has in mind. As he labors to silence the inner voice warning that he'll rue the day, his friend and colleague Howie Cross has things to rue as well. He wishes it could have been some impervious stone image of himself that first crossed paths with sexy, here-again-gone-again seductress Margot Hudson. The last time she'd flitted out of his life, she'd left behind five-year-old Maya, swearing the girl belonged to daddy. Was that the truth or a typical Margot lie? By now, it doesn't much matter, since Howie's inextricably attached. And then, suddenly, shockingly, Maya is kidnapped. Meanwhile, in Puerto Vallarta, Deets hears scary stories about private armies and the highly placed American government officials who make nefarious use of them. Eventually these two wildly diverging scenarios are linked - well, almost.Another solid performance from a savvy writer who knows that the best way to plug plot holes is with engaging characters.
