When his girlfriend dumps him and a dealer nearly rams him off a bridge, Al DeSantis quits the New Haven Police Department. Just as he plans to head for LA, he finds out the father who left when he was a kid has deeded him the Blue PalmettoDetective Agency in Georgia. Al goes down to Savannah intending to sell fast and go west, but before he can, he discovers a strong, attractive detective named Maxine, a dead body on the dock—and his father, alive, suffering from dementia, and determined to help his “new partner Al” solve the crime. Al has a lot of adjusting to do when his traditional ideas are challenged as he has to act as his father’s caretaker, and finds that Maxine is his superior in the agency that he “owns.” When his father goes missing, Al and Max must team up to save his father--and capture the murderer.
My Review
It's a compelling detective mystery, with a bit of romance and lots of action and suspense. It is very well written, the plot is well intertwined and the pace is flowing.
Al has the chance to change his life after breaking up with his ex-girlfriend Kim. His father, who he has not seen for twenty-eight years, is admitted to a clinic because of senile dementia and has left him a home and a detective agency in Savannah. Here he also has a boat, a nice car and a precious and attractive colleague Max. Together they must investigate a body found at the dock behind his father's house.
The characters are well characterized, Al and Max are a great couple, intelligent, with great investigative skills and with  a great harmony between them. The old Al is an unbearable grumbler.
To read for those who love classic detective stories
