Tired of following cheating spouses and uncovering insurance fraud, ex-cop, Earl Town believes he’s found just the case to lift his spirits and business. But once hired to find a missing Wall St. executive, the self-described gumshoe becomes entangled with the ultra-high-net-worth members of a Greenwich, CT yacht club, where a murder may have taken place.
Blue-collar Earl now finds himself being targeted by rich, powerful men and seduced by beautiful, manipulative, women – not that he minds the latter. He’s also still upset about losing his ex-wife to a “hedge fund guy” and dealing with feelings of inadequacy around the glitz and glamour of Greenwich and the Upper East Side. A couple of irritable FBI agents stir the pot some more, and then there’s the mystery of which one of the women the missing man named his yacht after.
At the heart of Indian summer lies the tale of a flawed man searching for redemption among the irredeemable, but it’s also an old-fashioned detective novel with the requisite amounts of sex, violence, mystery and perhaps a little extra humor.
