Read full description of the books Doing Max Vinyl:Doing Max Vinyl is an urban mystery-thriller which weaves the theme of defending the environment into a story with a colorful cast of Chicago characters.
Max Vinyl is a computer recycling entrepreneur whose company cuts corners in the most outrageous ways, almost as if a GPS could substitute for a moral compass. When his environmentalist girlfriend, Tris Berrymore, catches him dumping old computer junk ten miles out in Lake Michigan, Max gets a taste of her violent side. Max is used to turning up the heat on troublemakers himself, but this time he is the one under attack. For Tris, "Doing Max Vinyl" is a mission whose logical end can only be her ex-lover's death.
Annie Ogden is an Iraq war vet who has issues to deal with after four years fighting overseas. When her sister Alison is gratuitously threatened by two of Max Vinyl's brawny enforcers, some instinct from Annie's army training is triggered. Going after the two thugs draws Annie into the world of Max Vinyl's recycling company as well. When we meet Annie she is ill and hardly able to function, still having difficulty re-integrating into civilian life. As she kicks into action, motivated by devotion to her sister, her malaise and depression begin to fade away.
We also meet Alden Sterling, a tragic character who is fighting for custody of his only son. When Alden's laptop ends up in Max Vinyl's recycling pile, his life threatens to implode. The laptop contains a secret that could destroy not only Alden's case in court, but also his way of life and all he has worked for. Alden sends his young business partner, Bob Olson, on a mission to recover the lost laptop from Max Vinyl. While Bob Olson and Annie Ogden join forces and become friends, Alden prepares one last desperate stratagem to preserve his secret.
As the week goes on, the attacks on Max Vinyl from Tris Berrymore, Annie Ogden, Alden Sterling and others become more intense and more relentless. Questions of loyalty and betrayal in families, in marriage and in the workplace are weaved into a story that is by turns hilarious and tragic.
