The Mystery Master – Conspiracy: Rick O’Shea Adventure book #1 by John Rayburn

Meet a different kind of detective.  Rick O’Shea’s intuitive nature and sense of curiosity led him into a career as an investigator. Not a private eye, not that kind of investigator. He’s one who is a “seeker” and “finder” of things that have been lost, stolen, or hidden. His methods may be unusual, but he gets the job done when no one else has been able to, and is rewarded with lucrative finder’s fees or found treasures for his trouble. Due to his fame and the substantial worth of the items he seeks to recover, Rick’s seemingly innocuous livelihood has its share of dangerous situations and harrowing experiences―hazardous encounters with hijackers, kidnappers, thieves, and drug dealers, to name a few.

 Good as he is at what he does, Rick would not have been nearly so successful without the Prof and “Q” providing invaluable research and technical backup. In this adventure, lovely aerospace expert Helga Lange and boyhood chum Luther (call me Lute) Martin also join his team and help him solve challenging mysteries in Europe, The Rockies, and Mexico. Of course, romance develops between Rick and Helga, although neither one seems quite ready to fully embrace a commitment.
