Fans of true crime, police procedurals, and mysteries that would perplex even Sherlock Holmes will rejoice at meeting Detective Cod Overture, the hero of Doc Holloway’s enticing, absorbing, and no holds barred first novel. When his partner in Homicide Division pulls the plug and retires, Detective Overture decides to ease up himself, and transfers to White Collar Crime. Or so he thinks.
When two police officers are murdered during an Election Year and the Mayor wants his best detective on the job, Overture’s transfer is rescinded. Back on Homicide, the killings are not just front page news. They are his responsibility to solve—and fast.
Paired with a new partner, Leo Lapaka, Detective Overture dives head-first into the case, only to discover nothing is what it seems. The further they go, the more Overture realizes the murders are not an isolated incident, and the trail gets deadlier with every step they take.
Pursuing their invisible killer leads the two detectives on a riveting, non-stop race against time, from the urban jungle to rural forests, local taverns to mega truck stops, a military base to local junk yards—and from a foster home to the Mayor’s own office. What began with two murders grows into a case of theft, greed, and corruption at the highest levels—and that’s when things get really interesting.
“Ripped from the headlines, this is a page-turner without equal,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “Doc Holloway’s career in law enforcement is going to make him a recognized name in crime fiction, and his debut is amazing. Why can’t the killer be found? This is one of the best endings in crime fiction I’ve seen in recent years. Readers will be amazed.”
