Disgusted with politics, disenchanted with formalities, and dismissed by the opposite sex, Con Allsop is not your average detective. The witty, cynical forty-something (who writes childrena€™s books on the side) takes the reader through his daily rants and routines as a self-employed professional a€œfinder, a€ inviting them along on his constant quest for adventure and his failed attempts at luck in love.

The governor of Florida has a mission for hima€”one that is sure to interrupt his now quiet life. Con takes the job, knowing that it could run him deepa€”he hopes not six feet. His assignment is to dig up dirt on a flip-flopping senator who has been running out-of-character ads advocating for environmental preservation of the sugar-industry-occupied Everglades. The senatora€™s political enemies know that the big-business supporter could care less about the environment, and now ita€™s Cona€™s job to find out whoa€™s backing the ads, and why.
