With the business faltering and Galveston’s love life in shambles, Murphy is determined to get things back on track. Even when it means he has to knock some sense into a lovelorn Galveston. Just as things look bleak, the PI’s catch a big break. An insurance investigator named Maddie Jenkins needs their trademark, unique services to find her prized lost cargo that was aboard a merchant container ship traveling from Hong Kong to Los Angeles. It mysteriously disappeared in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and no one knows why.
Murphy and Galveston realize that this could be the payday they had always dreamed about. But did the ship simply have an accident at sea, or did something more sinister happen to it? The detectives cross from one side of the earth to the other as they follow a breadcrumb trail of clues. Their adventure becomes increasingly more complex and dangerous when they discover what this ship was really carrying. Little did they know, they had been drawn into the mysterious case of the Peeking Duck.
