In the electrifying fourth book in the bestselling Thomas Prescott series, Prescott must prove a horrific crime in a small town is tied to Big Biotech.
When retired homicide detective Thomas Prescott learns he's inherited a 250-acre farm in Tarrin, Missouri (pop. 2,100), he can't get there fast enough. As he slowly acclimates to small town living, he hears rumblings about a horrific crime in the town's past. Four years earlier, a recently fired employee of the local grocery store enacted his revenge, shooting and killing the owner of the store, plus four customers, then turning the gun on himself. The crime appears to have been solved, but Prescott has his doubts.
Balancing farm life and a budding romance with the town veterinarian, Prescott begins reinvestigating the crime. On the surface, the case is cut and dry--a revenge killing gone bad. But what if revenge wasn't the motive? What if the store owner wasn't the target?
One by one, Prescott delves into the victims' pasts. As Prescott digs deeper, he discovers the murders were twenty years in the making and soon finds himself in the unfamiliar waters of Big Biotech, GMOs, political payoffs, hired mercenaries, and the shadowy past of one of the most hated companies in the world.

“Show Me” more Nick.
Being resident of Kansas City and enjoying many of Missouri’s rural roads and towns from my motorcycle seat, this mystery held an additional fascination for me. Nick is currently one of my new favorite writers specifically with the protagonist Thomas, with ill timed humor and ineptness he mimics us all but still solves the crime. Having read all Robert Parker and Ace Atkins continuations I will for sure continue enjoying Mr. Pirog. Thanks
P.S. I vividly Remember the awful “Times Beach” tragedy and related immediately to “Simon Beach”.
Another enjoyable mystery
Once again Nick Parog Has offered up and interesting seven course meal. He maintains your interest and even his little side trips here and there and to the flavor and you find yourself learning things you didn’t know you were interested in. Keep up the excellent work sir!
I have loved everything hecwrites
I discovered Nick Pirog on Bookbub several years ago, even read his mini book on publishing on Amazon. He’s written some very unique stories that have never failed to make me laugh. I have truly enjoyed everything he has written and hope to see more soon. I highly recommend him as an author to follow.
