The Politics of Murder

Available in paperback and e-book

Rick Patterson was a young cop with a bright future until his partner died taking a bullet meant for him. Consumed by guilt, he walked away from a promising career in law enforcement and turned his back on his soul mate, Megan Fitzpatrick.

Five years later Megan's been kidnapped and Rick, now a struggling two-bit private investigator, must climb out of his self-imposed hell to get her back.

Rick discovers that Megan's disappearance is somehow connected to a plot to assassinate New York State Governor Helen Clifton on the very day she plans to announce her historic candidacy for President of the United States. Problem is, no one believes him.

Rick Patterson has six days to rescue the only woman he ever loved and prevent New York's governor from being murdered. The odds are stacked against him unraveling the mystery before all hell breaks loose.

And time is running out...
