A Bad Bout of the Yips
by Ken Harris
March 6 - 31, 2023 Virtual Book Tour
But as the team investigates, a neighborhood’s bigoted knee jerk reaction to a new sapphic-owned business, is in fact a laser focused plan of intimidation. Before anyone can yell FORE!, violence litters the front nine after Rockfish uncovers the real perpetrator, their actual motive, and dangerous accomplices.
Soon, an old nemesis returns to raise the stakes with plans of revenge and domination. Now facing a battle on two fronts, Rockfish finds his allies thinning at the worst possible time, and recklessly goes on the offensive.
The back nine takes Rockfish and McGee on a frenetic ride from a corporate boardroom, across cyberspace, and to the 19th hole where a long overdue showdown will change everything for the partners, for better and worse.
Rockfish is a flawed hero but I like him. He's rough and ruthless and not afraid to bend the law or run right through it to get the job done. In this novel, he is a worthy opponent to the mob. The plot takes us into the murky world of big development corporations and mob influence. It takes someone like Rockfish and his team to break through all the false fronts to the dirty action. But when opposing the mob, there is always plenty of danger so there is lots of action too.
This novel is the third in the series and much of the threats, danger and emotional turmoil find their roots in previous experiences. There is sufficient back story to appreciate this novel as a stand alone, but I would recommend reading them in order to fully enjoy this one.
Rockfish is a tough character and his language reflects it. Be prepared for lots of coarse language. This is a good novel for readers who like a really tough hard boiled PI and crew.
