After Alex Polecheck’s police officer husband, Sam, is stabbed in cold blood, she vows to see the murderer brought to justice.  Peter, Sam’s best friend, and fellow police officer, seems to be the only member of the Police Department interested in catching the killer.

Peter sets out on a perilous hunt for the killer, while trying to protect Alex, who appears to be next on the murderer’s list.

The mystery begins to unravel when Peter finds a connection between the murder of Sam and two other law enforcement officers, who were all part of an internet crime taskforce. Peter and Alex find themselves alone in the battle for justice and truth when they discover members of the local police department cannot be trusted.  Will Peter piece together the puzzle before Alex is silenced?  While battling to protect Alex, will he be able to continue to conceal his love for her?

NEW – Character Interview – Sam Polecheck

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin. After college, I returned to my hometown and married my high school sweetheart. We thought our hometown would be a great place to raise a family, but we never got that far, I was murdered.

What did you do for a living?

I was a police officer. It’s the only career I ever wanted. My best friend Peter and I went through the academy together.

What’s the most tragic thing that’s ever happened to you?

The most tragic think I’ve ever had to endure was to watch the love of my life watch me die. It broke my heart. I fought, I fought so hard to stay alive but I just couldn’t. I guess fate had other plans.

Do you have a secret?

I do. I know who murdered me and who’s after my wife, Alex, and best friend, Peter. Oh how I hope Peter figures it out before the killer gets to him and/or Alex.
