When he glances downstream,MoreSuffering from insomnia, wise-cracking tough guy Thomas OShea goes for a late-night stroll through the peaceful streets of Rockbluff, Iowa, and finds himself pausing downtown on the bridge that spans the Whitetail River. When he glances downstream, something catches his eye…something that looks like a body. He scrambles down to the riverbank, pulling the body of a young girl from the water. The girl is naked, with two bullet holes in the back of her head. Ever suspicious of law enforcement, O’Shea chooses not to mention the bullet holes when Deputy Stephen Doltch, on routine patrol, discovers him at the rivers edge.When the coroners report lists the cause of death as drowning, Thomas confronts the coroner, but his questions are met with hostility. Then the coroner and his wife disappear, along with the body of the dead girl.Teaming up with his friend Lunatic Mooning and Clancy Dominguez, an old buddy from his Navy SEAL days, Thomas and the other two men join together to bring justice to the dead girl, a quest that takes them to the Chalaka Reservation in Minnesota, seedy businesses adjacent to the Chalaka Casino, and straight into the world of organized crime.A fast-paced story, laugh-out-loud moments and familiar, quirky characters from Carenens debut novel, Signs of Struggle, continue to enliven the complex world of Thomas OShea. Once again, Thomas gears up to find answers that will reveal who put the bullets in the girls head, why she was killed, and her identity, which may hit a little too close to home.
