Award winning author Owen Parr is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the fourth book in his Joey Mancuso, Father O'Brian Crime Mystery series, The Case of the Antiquities Collector. Book one, A Murder On Wall Street (ISBN: 978-1542693240)
When Gavi Drucker, the daughter of multi-millionaire socialite Aaron Drucker, is abducted from her dorm at the University of Miami, retired NYPD homicide detective Joey Mancuso and his half-brother, Father Dominic O'Brian, are hired to find her. Afraid the young woman has been kidnapped for ransom, or worse, might be sold into the lucrative sex-slave market, the two New York City private detectives soon uncover clues that indicate this is more than just a simple abduction.
Before long, the two brothers' search for Gavi crosses paths with the FBI, Department of Justice, and Department of Homeland Security, who are investigating the black-market sale of rare antiquities and aren't happy with the brothers' interference. Is Gavi's father—whose top-tier accounting firm caters to a worldwide clientele who will do anything to keep their financial dealings private—somehow involved? Is the terrorist group ISIS? The more clues they uncover, the more danger they find themselves in. Because those involved will do anything to keep their secrets safe, including kill.
Joey Mancuso is back in the fourth book of the Mancuso & O'Brian Crime Mystery series and more determined than ever to live up to his moniker as The Last Advocate of the Victim as he investigates crime with his usual Sherlock Holmes style in this fast-paced, taut thriller, where what you see isn't always as it seems.
The Case of the Antiquities Collector will available for purchase in both print and ebook formats upon its release.
