Publisher: Whiskey Creek Press Release Date: May 15, 2014
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?
His blood seeped through her fingers. Alex pressed her shaky hands to the wound on Sam’s stomach, but the blood wouldn’t stop. “Please stop. God, please make it stop,” she begged.
She didn’t know what had happened or exactly how long he’d been there. Everything was fine when she’d stepped into the shower minutes earlier, but when she wrapped the oversize towel around her the house was unusually quiet.
As she dressed, she yelled for Sam. He didn’t answer. She checked every room. No sign of him. A rush of damp cool air swept by her as she entered the bedroom for a second pass. She glanced at the patio door. It was ajar. Beyond the door, Sam lay in a curled heap in their backyard. She ran to him. His left hand clutched his abdomen, and his right gripped around the handle of his 9mm police issued Glock.
Blood poured from his wound, coated his hand, and ran down his arm. His hand loosened and drifted to the ground. Instinctively Alex pressed her hand to his wound. It didn’t curb the bleeding. Her hand was now coated as well.
Sam shifted his gaze to Alex. “Call 911, I’ve been stabbed,” his voice not much more than a whisper.
