The Pink PonyBook - 2015
"The Port Huron-Mackinac sailboat race has just finished at Mackinac Island, and the racers head for the nearest bar, the legendary Pink Pony. This night, however, takes on a grisly turn and the next morning, one of the skippers, Jimmy Lyons is found in the bar, strangled to death by a string of Christmas tree lights. Burr Lafayette celebrated at The Pink Pony the night of the murder and takes on the case, largely because he needs the money. Late forties, recently divorced and a part-time father, he is a man at loose ends. The deposed head of the litigation department of a major Detroit law firm, he much prefers boats and fishing, dogs and duck hunting, women and wine. Nonetheless, he is a brilliant, if reluctant, litigator. Burr sets out on a journey filled with unsavory characters and legal setbacks. Burr, though, is at his best in court. A legal twist almost costs him the case, but he finally untangles the characters and their secrets, and, in a thrilling and shocking climax, unmasks the murderer."From Amazon.com.
