Shay O'Hanlon is the co-owner of the hip, quirky Rabbit Hole, a popular coffee shop in Uptown Minneapolis. Police detective JT Bordeaux and her partner show up at the Hole in search of Shay's best friend, Coop--a chain-smoking, vegetarian tree hugger--who's wanted for questioning in connection with the bludgeoning death of his less-than-respectable boss, Stanley "Kinky" Anderson. Coop's prints are all over the murder weapon--an over-sized, bronzed bingo marker--and the cops have themselves a prime suspect.
Suddenly, Shay's quiet but highly caffeinated world spins out of control faster than a ride on a fairground Tilt-A-Whirl as she tries to save her friend. Complicating matters are a couple of bumbling mobsters, a missing truckload of stolen nuts, an abused mutt named Dawg, a kidnapping or two, and a very persistent Detective Bordeaux. Will Shay and her friends succeed in their quest to clear Coop and nail the murderer or will their nutty caper wind up deadly?
