Greasing the Piñata by Tim Maleeny
 San Francisco Noir, 3

THE SAN FRANCISCO NOIR SERIES. Take one smart, funny detective. Add one beautiful, deadly Chinese assassin. Pour into San Francisco and shake violently.

GREASING THE PIÑATA. A former U.S. Senator disappears shortly after his son goes missing. When his son is found dead at the bottom of a water hazard on a golf course in Mexico, it falls to the Senator's estranged daughter to find out what happened.

Private investigator Cape Weathers doesn't want the case. He doesn't know the terrain and he doesn't like politicians. But he suspects the daughter won't survive very long if he turns her away. He doesn't know the half of it. When his investigation gets the attention of a Mexican drug cartel, Cape asks his deadly companion Sally to watch his back. Sally confronts a killer even more dangerous than she is, someone determined to bury the past along with anyone trying to dig it up.
