TWO STEAK TACO COMBOS AND A PAIR OF SIG SAUERS by Neil S. Plakcy
Guns + Tacos, Season Three Episode 17
Publication Date: November 01, 2021
Synopsis … Bodyguards Aidan Greene and Liam McCullough don’t do hostage rescues. But Liam’s SEAL buddy Joey is still on active duty in Afghanistan, so when he asks for help locating his missing fiancée, they have to step up.
Their partnership, in life and close protection, has spanned twelve books in the Have Body, Will Guard series. To rescue social worker Cathy Beth, they’ll have to rely on Liam’s physical strength and Aidan’s out of the box thinking. Flying in from their home base on the French Riviera, they’ll need local advice, in the form of Cathy Beth’s BFF, an over-the-top drag queen, and a pair of guns from a Chicago taco truck.
Cathy Beth’s kidnapping shines a light on a grim immigrant tradition of female genital mutilation, and it’s up to Aidan and Liam to rescue Cathy Beth and her teen charge and shut down a doctor’s evil practice. Fortunately, they’re up to the challenge.
Praise for TWO STEAK TACO COMBOS AND A PAIR OF SIG SAUERS:
“Not all novelists are equally good at short formats. Neil Plakcy, on the other hand, is a master of both. In Two Steak Tacos Combos and a Pair of Sig Sauers, he pulls fans of the “Have Body, Will Guard” series out of the exotic, sometimes dangerous, hills of the French Riviera and drops us onto the mean streets of the USA. When the last of Liam’s Navy SEAL buddies calls for help—from the battlefield, no less—Liam and Aidan hop on the next flight out and head to Chicago to locate Liam’s best friend’s missing wife. What we get is a fast-paced inside look at the tenuous lives of American immigrants, torn from their homelands by violence; lives in which old, and sometimes bad, customs are still practiced. Through the familiar, loving, give-and-take of these two, smart, brave men, we get a ringside seat at a little American tragedy, all the more poignant for the fact that it plays out in the shadow of the American Dream.” — Ulysses Grant Dietz, author of Cliffhanger
