For most people working in the family business means suits, power lunches and afternoon meetings. For Wes Darling it was guns, lies, and dead bodies. The Darling Detective Agency has been around since 1876. Now Wes’s chain smoking, stressed out mother is grooming Wes to take over. How does he handle his mother’s expectations? He heads to Key West, moves onto a sailboat, and takes a job tending bar at a little joint called Dirty Alvin’s. Life is carefree until his mother’s lover, a man who mentored Wes for years, is murdered a short distance from Dirty Alvin’s. Despite his reluctance, Wes is drawn into a tightening web of murder, sex and deceit. First there are his mother’s pleas for help. Throw in a six-foot-tall red-headed stripper, a retired mobster who acts like it’s the 1940’s, a pair of dim-witted hit men, a phobic psychic named Elvis, and a small fortune in stolen diamonds and what do you have? Mayhem in Key West.
