Books 4-6 in the Brandon Hall series...
Hall is lured into a trap, then rescued by an old acquaintance. That same acquaintance also helps Hall get his next job. It’s nothing but a simple blackmail case. Only in this case, there’s nothing simple about it.
Is anybody actually who they appear to be? And have we seen the last of James Rankin? Or is he the mastermind behind the latest case, once again?
The Dead Client
Hall’s latest case involves a woman who’s receiving threatening notes. As soon as he’s hired, though, the woman turns up dead. But that’s not the end of the case for Hall. Even though his client is dead, that won’t stop him. He’s going to get to the bottom of this case and find out the murderer.
Through several twists and turns, Hall and Charlotte will find out who killed their dead client.
Hall is approached by a marketing executive, asking him to check in on the man's son, who has been acting strange as of late. Though it initially looks like a boring case marked by possible infidelities, the case quickly spirals out of control, and they soon realize there is more than meets the eye.
As Hall and Charlotte investigate, several dead bodies pop up, and they are aided by the mysterious James Rankin, who has his own reasons for helping.
