Product description

Product Description

For some people working in the family business means suits, power lunches, and afternoon meetings. For Wes Darling it was guns, lies, and dead bodies.

The Darling Detective Agency was founded in 1876 by Aaron "Dusty" Darling, and Wes's chain smoking, stressed out mother is determined it's time for Wes to take over the agency. So what does Wes do?

He quits his job, heads to Key West, and moves onto a sailboat. Now life's nothing but sun, cocktails, and beautiful women, right? Yup! That is, until the dead bodies start piling up.

This slightly humorous mystery about an ex-private investigator who runs away from responsibility to live the good life is bound to make you wish you could do the same.

About the Author

In September of 2003 Mike and his wife, Mary, moved aboard their 36-foot sailboat, Rough Draft. It was their intention to take the boat south from Minnesota to warmer climates where Mike would write a novel. They sailed the boat through the inland river system from Minnesota to Mobile, Alabama where they lived for two years. They also spent three months living in Key West. Currently, the boat is docked in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. In 2011 Mike and Mary will sail Rough Draft to the Caribbean where they plan to drift until it is no longer fun. In his time living on the boat Mike has completed three novels. The first two books, The Storm Killer, a historical thriller, and Key Lime Blues, a Key West thriller, are now available at Amazon. The third book, Dog River Blues, will be available in early 2011.
