Drink the Tea by Thomas Kaufman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Growing up without parents or a home Willis Gidney was an expert at the scam. At age 12 he was taken in by the captain of the DC Police who managed to instil a small amount of ethics in him. He became a private investigator. Now, when his best friend asks him to find his missing daughter, Gidney is compelled to help, even though she's been missing for twenty-five years. He finds someone who may be the young woman's mother - and within hours she is killed by persons unknown. The police accuse Gidney of the murder and throw him in jail. Maybe Gidney should quit while he's behind. But when his investigation puts him up against a ruthless multi-national corporation, a two-faced congressman, and a young woman desperate to conceal her past, Gidney has no time for second thoughts. In fact, he may have no time left at all. This is a wonderful debut novel, with an original P.I. and an engaging cast of characters. Thomas Kaufman will satisfy private eye novel fans, also adding a fresh perspective to the genre.
