AN EXCITING MURDER-MYSTERY THRILLER.

298 pages

MURDER WAS JUST THE BEGINNING.

When the governor's son is murdered in front of his children on Christmas Day, Detective Pete Mueller is named a lead investigator of the brutal crime.

For Mueller, it's a plum assignment except for one thing – he's broken. Years after his service in Iraq, wartime horrors still haunt his nights. An idealist, he struggles to fit into the state police, but his commander wants him gone. And nothing is going right with his case.

The governor wants the murder solved now, but a baffling conspiracy blocks the investigation at every turn. Mueller's commander pushes him in a direction that seems wrong. Leaks to the media are sabotaging his work. More people are dying. And the murderer is now targeting the governor himself.

But when Mueller uncovers the destructive secret surrounding the murder, it's not the end. The killer doesn't want his secret exposed. He has tried to assassinate the governor. He won't stop at killing a detective.
