When you say paradise, I think snakes. Maybe that’s because I live in the slice of paradise known as southern California’s Gold Coast. And maybe it’s because I spend my time killing other people’s reptiles.
So I wasn’t too surprised when my ex-wife and sometime lover, Fiora Flynn, came to me because Danny, her beloved dunce of a twin brother, was in trouble.
What did surprise me was the kind of trouble he was in. The killing kind. Complete with the FBI and international spooks.
I didn’t think Danny boy had it in him.
The good news is that unraveling Danny’s snarl brought Fiora back to me. The bad news….
Well, there’s always bad news, isn’t there?
