On the verge of bankruptcy, private investigator, Mitch O'Reilly, takes any gig that comes his way, while running his Eye Spy Supply shop in a forgotten Los Angeles strip mall. After two tours in Afghanistan, Mitch's life amounts to operating his store, coping with his fun loving sister, Josie, and scoring with anonymous men he meets online. That changes when he gets a big break. A beloved comedy scriptwriter is murdered in a bathhouse and Mitch is hired to prove the innocence of the club custodian. Adapting from a two-bit gumshoe to a high profile sleuth proves more challenging than he expected.
As if Mitch didn't have enough to deal with, playful bathhouse operator Trent Nakos enters his life. After a heartbreaking past, the manager is the definition of a man the brooding P.I. actively avoids.
Following leads from sprawling mansions to sketchy hoods is demanding, but becomes more troublesome when deadly threats jeapordize the biggest opportunity of his career.
"A Body in a Bathhouse introduces readers to L.A. gumshoe Mitch O'Reilly, a classic yet wholly contemporary P.I., charmingly humorous, a little bit broken, a tad rusty around the edges, and struggling to make ends meet in a city that covers its tarnish with twice as much twinkle. Come for the murder, stay for the fun."
