Slow Bullet
by John L. Lansdale

Washington cover-ups. Crooked CIA operatives. International intrigue.
Veteran Clark McKay wants to find a murderer. But what happens when he uncovers so much more?
The former Army Special Forces Colonel is haunted by the loss of his wife and son, and nightmares of his time in Vietnam have been keeping him up at night. And on top of it all, the mirror on the wall keeps reminding him he’s not getting any younger.
After hearing terrible news about the murder of a close friend he served with in the war, McKay is determined to rise above his own problems and find the killer. No matter the cost.
His search for truth takes McKay across the globe, where he crosses paths with a multitude of unforgettable characters. From his kind-hearted godson and friend’s spitfire daughter, to a stubborn D.C. detective and a benevolent Brazilian prostitute – both good and bad sit squarely in the crosshairs.
Along the way, it becomes increasingly clear to McKay that his friend was murdered for uncovering the truth behind one of the nation’s most notorious conspiracies – the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
After wallowing in a murky ocean of corruption, McKay is brought to the conclusion he may have to resort to murder if justice is to be truly served.
Truth and fiction make for an interesting mixture in this fast-paced and entertaining novel.
There are always those who escape justice, and one hand will always wash the other.
Unless you have someone like Clark McKay willing to pay the ultimate price.
