Editorial Reviews

"A well-written mystery about a unique community imbued with a palpable sense of place. . .well-plotted and highly enjoyable."--Kirkus Reviews

After a horrific mutilation renders former Chicago police detective Matt Callahan a recluse, he is given a second chance at life as sheriff of tiny Nicolet County in the Northwoods of Michigan.  Idyllic, peaceful, and sparsely populated, the island community hides a web of secrets Callahan and his young female deputy must uncover before a great city an ocean away explodes in violence and is thrown back into a half century of carnage. 

Irish paramilitaries, the British Royal Family, a century-old Irish enclave in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the long reach of modern terrorism, and the incendiary effect of a single spark on the lasting peace of a nation combine to make a volatile brew in this engrossing Midwest mystery.



Editorial Reviews

"The cinematic, twisting plot superbly navigates a series of explosive events that lead this battle-ready political thriller to its gripping conclusion."--Kirkus Reviews

In this action-packed thriller, a military trial uncovers a deep-seated political conspiracy.

When defense counsel, Marine Captain Charles Slidell, uncovers evidence that may bring the conspiracy to light and prove his clients' innocence, he ignites a conflagration of political intrigue and bloodshed that burns across the battlefields of Iraq, through the cities of Baghdad and Washington, and into the secret chambers of politicians, generals, and judges.

No measure is too extreme to guarantee the success of the conspiracy and protect the identities of those involved, and Slidell soon finds himself in a battle deadlier than any he faced in war. Portraying the redemptive forces of love and loyalty, this thriller is nonetheless a no-holds-barred depiction of the depths to which human souls can plunge when ends justify means.
