My latest mystery, Forks: Murder in an American Family tells the story of a dysfunctional Maryland family experiencing the murder of a sibling and the police work to find the perpetrator.
Forks: Murder in an American Family Kindle Edition and in paperback, Amazon Paperback Editon have just be released .
An affluent Washington DC suburbanite wife is found dead at the foot of the staircase in her Maryland home.
Each member of her dysfunctional family has motive, opportunity, and means to have committed the crime. Each sibling is forced to deal with the fact that one of their own may very well be the killer.
Captain Jeffery Jackson, a crusty veteran major crimes detective, along with his junior partner, Lonnie Colville, uncover the clues and chase the leads in attempting to bring the perp to justice.
The novel has clues scatter throughout that would allow an astute reader and mystery buff to come to the correct decision as to the perpetrator's identity.
My first novel, released two years ago, was Storm Killer. It was in the top 100 techno-thrillers on Kindle for over six months.
Forks: Murder in an American Family is a more classic murder mystery that I hope will lead to Jeff Jackson's character being a future lead in further novels of the Forks series.
The reference to Forks in the title means those myriad points in our lives when one decision or another takes us down a new path.
I would appreciate any reviews and comments about the book.
