Book Signing: Richard Helms - Paid in Spades
THE THRILLING FIFTH TITLE IN THE PAT GALLEGHER MYSTERY SERIES!
Only two weeks after a violent gunfight in the alley behind Holliday's in New Orleans' French Quarter, slacker jazz cornetist and knight errant Pat Gallegher finds himself saddled with two missing person cases. A man to whom he owes an unpayable debt has disappeared after exacting a promise that Gallegher would find him. Gallegher's girlfriend, Merlie Comineau, has asked him to find the missing father of a young girl who needs a knee operation.
What begins as a routine investigation throws Gallegher and his new musical partner Chick Kasay in the path of Brazilian smugglers, corporate fraud, trading in endangered species, bumbling private investigators, and a oligarchic billionaire who believes everything has a price--including murder.
Thriller Award-winning knight-errant Pat Gallegher (Juicy Watusi, Wet Debt) returns in this steamy, action-drenched New Orleans tale. A failed seminarian, retired forensic psychologist, and disgraced college professor, Gallegher left security behind to become a jazz cornetist in a dive bar off Toulouse Street in New Orleans.
