Detective Clark Philips is upping the ante; his team of police officers and FBI agents embark on an operation to undercut Mafia run blind pigs and unmask Mafia ties with the Catholic Church.
Building upon their successes in SAX CLUB, the real-to-life characters continue their uphill battle in BLIND PIG, the second historical fiction novel in the “Detroit Thorn Birds” series.
It’s the early ‘80s, Detroit is hemorrhaging; a criminal juggernaut has brought the city to its knees — the Mafia has outwitted and outmaneuvered what is widely known as the nation’s most corrupt police force. The city’s social fabric is torn beyond repair, neighborhood gangs are rampant — unethical political officials offer no help — the situation is hopeless! Like the characters in Colleen McCullough’s bestseller novel, The Thorn Birds, the Detroit Thorn Birds are unrelenting in their resolve; they refuse to succumb to the evil forces permeating their small neighborhoods — they’re clawing to save their dignity and way of life.
