The second Tommy Donahoo adventure. “The action explodes. Donahoo continues to be an appealingly clumsy hero, a welcome change from the usual tough, icily sarcastic police protagonist.” Publishers Weekly
A tough, San Diego cop witnesses a murder… but instead of arresting the killer, he blackmails him for a million dollars. But before the payoff can be made, the cop is killed in a shoot-out in another case and the killer goes to the dead mans partner, Detective Sergeant Tommy Donahoo, to honor the deal. The problem is, Donahoo knows nothing about it. And that’s only the beginning of Donahoo’s problems in this outrageous, deadly, darkly funny thriller.
In his third adventure, San Diego Police detective Tommy Donahoo is sent to Mexico to assist the Tijuana police in the investigation of the brutal rape and murder of a rich socialite.
Tommy Donahoo, a hard-drinking, hard-loving, hard-boiled cop, chases not one, but two different madmen intent on shooting down a commercial airliner over a residential neighborhood.
San Diego police detective Tommy Donahoo is up against a crazy Mafia hitman, a rogue FBI agent, a scheming millionaire, and a horny heiress named Travata "Jumpy" Havershot as he investigates the death of a Navy SEAL, a kidnapping, a helicopter crash, millions of missing dollars, and a sunken ship, among other things in this rollicking, action-packed adventure.
Profane and slam-bang. Impossible to put down.
Modern riffs on a familiar strain with a slam-bang finale.
Fans of the genre will enjoy this taut thriller.
Sharp, realistic, and very well written.
