A THOUSAND BRIDGES by Michael McKinney


Email this review


The day after Candace Furay's abortion--she was raped by Florida gubernatorial hopeful Bob Birk, who insisted on the abortion--she sees her three best friends gunned down by members of a secret private army. Five years pass before Candy's mother, Katherine, is able to find an unlikely white knight--her old friend Patty Sheevers's lover/ partner, down-and-out p.i. McDonald Clay, who ""craved a Sheevers-sized hole in my heart"" after Patty was killed--to stop taking handouts for running Birk's dirty errands and turn on him and his glazed-eyed followers who plan to turn Florida into a police state, legalize drug sales to lowlifes segregated in patrolled camps, and use the resulting revenues to educate ""Florida's other children, the leaders of tomorrow."" A save-the-world first novel reminiscent of Bulldog Drummond and the Saint at their penny-dreadfullest.
