“Who are you to talk about Kate that way?” I asked.
“The man who fooled him for over a decade,” he said. Then his voice hit in my memories. Then I understood.
After the events in The Boots Are Red, Ron Cavanaugh finds himself struggling to make progress in the case he’s building against the members of the crime syndicate running rampant in his home town. He’s taken over Kate Nass’s private detective business and aims to make a mess of the plans of the syndicate that killed his friend. But he’s fighting against connected men: business leaders, politicians, and crooked cops. They’re fighting back, too, and consider nothing off-limits.
His only ally is his girlfriend, Audrey Carmen, who has a link to the syndicate that Ron doesn’t entirely understand. He works with, but isn’t entirely sure of, a set of police detectives who seem interested in breaking up the syndicate. But as Ron says, everyone is a suspect.
The second book in the Cigars and Legs series, The Boots Come Off sees Ron find the end of the conspiracy, one way or the other. Now that he knows who killed his friend Kate Nass and who ordered the hit, Ron has to use what technology is available to bring them down… before the price becomes too high.
