THROWING IN THE TOWEL
The Sean O'Connor & Cindy Matasar Boxer Series Mysteries - Book 3
Sean is asked by a boxing trainer to find out why a promising teenage boxer has suddenly become morose and depressed. Before Sean
gets around to doing so, the young man is found dead; an apparent suicide after having jumped off a building. Motivated by guilt, Sean
convinces Cindy to leave the public defender’s office and join him in a private investigation agency with the death of Damiyun Walker as
their first case. Cindy and Sean become both business partners and lovers.
They discovered that Damiyun had found out that a thirteen year old Vietnamese girl was being used as a sex slave by a local gang and he
was killed when he tried to rescue her. The homicide detective looking into these two deaths also ends up dead under circumstances
which indicate someone in law enforcement is behind running the sex slavery of Vietnamese girls in Portland. Sean, a Vietnam vet, has to
connect with his past contacts in the Marine corps to find out who in Portland has the connections in Vietnam to get these girls past
ICE enforcement, and ends up in a show-down with the ringleader.
