Richard Rose hails from Kokomo, Indiana. Teen dances, basketball and too many greasy French fries were followed with a BA at Wabash College. After a tour of duty fighting the Cold War on the East/West German border, Richard began a long career as a First V.P. with a major investment firm in Chicago, where he did market reports on TV and radio. Richard’s wife and true love, Kay, supports his passion for writing, which includes short stories, novels and screenplays. She also keeps him healthy. No more greasy French fries.
"In writing this book I was grateful to have had the assistance of Detective John DeBartolo, Chicago Police Department, Special Victims Unit, retired, who generously helped me with police procedural details," says Rose. "I also want to thank actress and model Irene Michaels for serving as our beautiful cover model. The novel is an adaptation of a screenplay that was a top ten finalist in an Illinois/Chicago film screenwriting competition."
