A warehouse robbery pulls Mike Shayne into a daring international conspiracy
It’s been years since Mike Shayne last subjected himself to a stakeout. Miami’s most infamous private detective simply doesn’t have time to waste sitting in a car, drinking cold coffee and waiting for excitement that will never come. But the Acme Bonding Company is one of his oldest clients, and when his stand-in falls through, he’s obliged to keep watch himself.
A string of warehouse robberies, timed to coincide with hurricanes, has put Miami’s business community on the alert. So when a tropical storm closes in, Acme asks Shayne to keep a lookout for burglars. He waits with his pistol in hand.
The burglars enter the warehouse quietly, like professionals, but Shayne still sees them coming—and his trigger finger is itchy. A shootout leaves 1 burglar dead and the others on the lam. But when he searches the city for the rest of the gang, Shayne finds that Miami is about to get hit by something far deadlier than a tropical storm.
A Redhead for Mike Shayne is the 47th book in the Mike Shayne Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
