WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:
"Small town life in southern Idaho might seem quaint and idyllic to some. But when local newspaper reporter Cal Murphy begins to uncover a series of strange deaths that are linked to a sticky spider web of deception, the lid on the peaceful town is blown wide open. Told with all the energy and bravado of an old pro, first-timer Jack Patterson hits one out of the park his first time at bat with Dead Shot. It's that good." - Vincent Zandri, bestselling author of The Remains

"J.P. does a fantastic job at keeping you engaged and interested. I look forward to more from this talented author."
- Aaron Patterson, bestselling author of SWEET DREAMS

"Like a John Grisham novel, from the very start I was pulled right into the story and couldn't put the book down. It was as if I personally knew and cared about what happened to each of the main characters. Every chapter ended with so much excitement and suspense I had to continue to read until I learned how it ended, even though it kept me up until 3:00 AM."
- Ray F., reader

****
In a small rural town in the Pacific Northwest, three star high school football players are all found dead scattered throughout the county in a 24-hour period ... and nobody seems to care why. But when journalist Cal Murphy begins looking for answers, his questions aren't welcomed by law enforcement officials -- or anyone else in town.

As he and fellow photographer Kelly Mendoza attempt to make sense of bizarre circumstances that led to the teens' deaths, Cal makes a chilling discovery, uncovering a vast conspiracy that grows darker with every twist and turn.

With a mastermind determined to silence Cal and Kelly, the young reporters ultimately must decide if their lives are worth the risk to reveal the truth.

Editorial Reviews

Times-News - David Bashore
Patterson's storytelling feels as natural as James Patterson's, and the short-chapter setup is the literary answer to Lay's potato chips: you just want one more and before you know it, you've gone through the whole thing.
CBSSports.com - Josh Katzowitz
You can tell Patterson knows what it's like to live in the newspaper world, but with Under Your Skin, he's proven that he also can write one heck of a murder mystery. With a clever plot and characters you badly want to succeed, Chartrand is on his way to becoming a new era James Patterson.
