Description and Biographies

Subtitle: A Cape Weathers Investigation

Tequila soaked adventure… fast and funny!    

     Miles away from home and nowhere near finding the answers, Private Eye Cape Weathers, manages to steal from the mob, piss off the DEA, alienate the local police, confound a computer genius, and somehow lose the client he’s been protecting all along.
     Tim Maleeny nails it with this installment of Cape Weathers’ adventures. It’s an intriguing murder mystery crossed with a fast-paced political thriller.The whole thing is tied together with a witty protagonist and a finely tuned sense of humor.
     In Greasing The Piñata, just as in Mexico: “Anything can happen, and most of it does".    A former U.S. Senator disappears shortly after his son goes missing. When the son is found dead at the bottom of a water hazard on a golf course in Mexico, it falls to the Senator’s estranged daughter to find out what happened.
     Private investigator Cape Weathers doesn’t want the case. He doesn’t know the terrain and he doesn’t like politicians. But he suspects the daughter won’t survive very long if he turns her away.
     He doesn’t know the half of it!
     Cape unravels a conspiracy that leads from boardrooms in New York to places in Mexico never seen on any postcard.  When his investigation gets the attention of a Mexican drug cartel,
     Cape asks his deadly companion Sally to watch his back. Sally confronts a killer even more dangerous than she is, someone determined to bury the past along with anyone trying to dig it up.
   
  Greasing The Piñata
is a novel about family, politics, and the devastating effects of tequila on a private detective’s investigative abilities.

     AudioFile:
Armando Durán’s powerful characterizations of sardonic PI Cape Weathers and his associate, Sally Mei, are believable and compelling....Durán depicts Dobbins’s estranged daughter, who hires Weathers, with bittersweet sensitivity. With sardonic humor he portrays the discovery of two mutilated bodies in the alligator pond of a Puerto Vallarta golf course....Exceptionally well done.”
    
Library Journal: "A cracking good mystery definitely not for the faint of heart but just right for readers who like a gritty crime novel with a labyrinth of plot twists."
     Don Winslow, Bestselling Author of The Dawn Patrol: "Maleeny is the kind of writer that makes you want to jump in the passenger seat and go for the ride—okay, maybe with eyes jammed shut and your hands gripping the arm rest—but then you want to go again."
