SHOWDOWN AT CADY SPRINGS is an action-filled, winsome, hard-boiled, nostalgic, suspenseful detective story where avarice, loyalty, treachery, humor, tragedy and heroics wrestle for dominance. Conflict shifts back and forth between a large northern metropolis and a small southern town during its annual festival. Meet some characters you'll never forget: LAKE, veteran detective who risks his job (and his life) to go south after the man who killed his wartime buddy, Tony. NICK, boss of the rackets, who dispatches two hit men to silence Lake. J. SAM, patriarch of the Kentucky Mulvers, and desperate to mend relations with Lake after a twenty-year alienation due to a shadowy family secret. WADE, town ne'er-do-well, is out to make a bundle from the Cady Springs Festival - so stay out of his way! LT. AVERY, head of detectives, who uses his power to block Lake's search for Tony's killer. DEBBIE, Lake's no-nonsense nurse-girlfriend. Fearing Lake's mission to Cady Springs could get him killed, she opts to go along to see that doesn't happen.
