Back with you at last and an entertaining book to get us going.
Elijah Lennox displays his diamond studded UFC Championship belt in his gym. He uses it as an incentive for the young men he trains. One day it’s missing.
Lennox turns to “Hammerhead” Jed Ounstead, a retired pro wrestler turned PI who’s known to get results. Ounstead takes the case and quickly figures out the culprit. It’s his good instincts and incredible roster of contacts that makes the difference. The antics of some of those contacts will have you laughing out loud.
As things take a dark turn Hammerhead quickly finds himself against odds he hadn’t realized. He’ll need everything he has to come out of this case intact.
But the burning question overall, will he give up Dairy Queen banana milk shakes in favour of a new pretender?
I enjoyed Devlin’s other two books in the series, and you can read those reviews by clicking on their titles here: Cobra Clutch and Rolling Thunder.

Welcome back. What a great title! Hope Hammerhead doesn’t give up his treat.
Thanks Laurie! I like the title too. And if there’s one thing you can count on with ol’ “Hammerhead” Jed it’s that a banana milkshake is always around!
Thanks Laurie and time will tell for Jed 🙂
Nothing will keep me away from my Dairy Queen banana milk shakes
I hear ya, James!
Clearly you are a true believer!
Very glad to see you again! And I’m happy to be reminded of ‘Hammerhead.’ He’s a good character in my opinion, and the stories do keep the pace going. Thanks for the reminder.
Thanks Margot, it’s always good to be back 😉
A.J. sure writes a good story.
Thank you Sheila, it’s good to be here 😉
