    Here in McCallen, the city that never sleeps, maybe crime really does take a holiday, because the only person entering Mike ‘Hard As’ Nails Private Eye’s office is his cleaning lady. When the well-heeled Suzette Swank arrives, he takes the case, even though this dame is about as nice as a sandpaper washcloth over a sunburn. Helping her locate her mink is just half of the solution to this case. Maybe next time, she’ll not leave her kid and mink alone while she goes off to buy lobster.
