Description

When recently divorced stage actress Sheila Mackenzie, nee Ryan, meets sometime male stripper and full-time operator Bobby Squared, she discovers inside her reserved self a furiously passionate, sharp-witted, hard-bitten, and very unpredictable Sheila she never knew. Call her Doyle. Hooked on Bobby, Sheila soon finds herself involved with Cuban gangsters, neo-Nazi gun-runners, Rastafarian hitmen, Italian drug dealers, and trigger-happy rednecks. She also picks up some trigger skills of her own. She needs them, too, because unwittingly she and Bobby have become entangled in a deadly net of vice and vengeance that could turn the private army of Cuban political exile Juan Jose Medina against them all. The ruthless Medina may never forget a face, but actress Sheila Mackenzie, nee Ryan, a.k.a. Sheila Doyle, has more than a few of them - and some talents her stage career never tested. Only now she's playing for keeps and playing for real. And it could be curtains.show more
