Descripción

".a sly tribute to the P.I. genre. Its protagonist, Sean Sean, filfills all the requirements-he's a wisecracking sole practitioner with fast feet and a quick wit. He keeps his guns clean and his Lady satisfied. By the time he deciphers the who-dunnit, it's clear he's accurate when he insists, 'I'm good.' To which I have to add that author Carl Brookins is very good." {Michael Allen Dymmoch}. This book has 267 pages. The book is a SIGNED copy from the author, Carl Brookins.

Sinopsis:

Sean "NMI" (No Middle Initial) Sean, a short Minneapolis private detective, is approached by a woman of obvious quality who says she needs help. He briefly shrugs off the incident, but later learns her name is Magda Bryce when the police summon him to the morgue to identify her body. After being assaulted in his home and warned to stay away from the Bryce family, Sean goes on the offensive. Upon finding out that an unnamed detective has been asking questions about him, Sean's first move is to confront the senior partner of a law firm, Ephraim Harcourt Saint Martin, to satisfy himself that Saint Martin was unaware of Magda's visit. Two nights later, Sean gets another call for help, but arrives too late to help another woman from the household of Preston Bryce, an important lawyer in the Saint Martin firm, and the former husband of Magda Bryce. Sean discovers evidence that Magda and perhaps others in the household have apparently been engaging in bondage and other practices. Sean visits a dominatrix in the interest of research, and he and his masseuse, Catherine Mckerney, whom he is developing a serious interest in, both survive an assassination attempt. As he digs deeper into a tangled web of perversion, faithlessness, and distrust, Sean Sean is as sure as his Keds are red that he will get to the bottom of the mysterious murders, one way or another.

Carl Brookins resides in Minnesota.

From Booklist:

Brookins can't keep himself from overdoing it. Take the name of his protagonist: "Sean NMI Sean," with NMI standing for "no middle initial." Brookins tries so hard to be clever that readers may be exhausted trying to keep up. Those who bear with him, however, will discover a gem of a tale hiding underneath all the silliness--and will fall head over heels for the diminutive Sean Sean, a Minneapolis PI whose small size belies a huge heart. Sean is puzzled by an attractive female visitor who says a local lawyer--with whom he's had plenty of run-ins--recommended him to her. Before they can meet again, she is found murdered. Meanwhile, Sean Sean tries to get a romance going with masseuse Catherine, and his failures make him all the more endearing. Here's hoping that in future stories, Brookins will take a deep breath, stop trying so darn hard, and leave Sean to tell his own tale. Jenny McLarin
