Summary
The second in David J. Walker's “Wild Onion, Ltd.” mystery series, A Beer at Bawdy House once again brings together elements from the author<U+2019>s own career history. Bishop Peter Keegan seeks help from private eye Kirsten and her Wild Onion, Ltd. detective agency when a stalker threatens to make public a secret about the high ranking Chicago cleric. The secret is a long-ago, potentially very embarrassing--but decidedly innocent--visit to a topless bar on a fishing trip in backwoods Canada. Kirsten and her lawyer husband Dugan believe the bishop<U+2019>s half-brother Walter Keegan, a high level Chicago police official, is the nemesis. A meeting is arranged, but Walter soon becomes the target of an assassination attempt. “Just when everything seems cut-and-dried, up comes a stunning twist,” stated a Publishers Weekly reviewer, who praised Walker<U+2019>s ability to craft “well-drawn characters, serpentine plots and atmospheric settings.” Booklist praised Kirsten and Dugan<U+2019>s “witty, civilized banter” and predicted, quite accurately, that the “Wild Onion” books would “be a long-running, intelligent series.” -- Amazon
