Overview

The Toppled Pawn unfolds like a master’s chess match. The story matches wits between newly appointed South Station Chief of Police, Kristi Christopher, and the international masterminds orchestrating a grand conspiracy designed to take over a local pharmaceutical company.

When Kristi investigates a failed assassination attempt on Jeff Westerfield, grandson of the town’s leading citizen, she discovers the attack is linked to a mysterious financial organization called the Painter Group. Joseph, the elder Westerfield, believes the group’s hidden objective is reestablishing Bayer, a company banned for war crimes, back into the US market. Kristi’s ability to anticipate the conspirator’s plans creates a fun read, a novel that’s hard to put down.

The “David vs Goliath” plot features murder, industrial sabotage, and offshore banking to create a suspenseful tale sprinkled with humor and history. It explores the extremes of courage and greed as a small group of dedicated people battle the ruthless opportunists that are trying to control our society.

The Toppled Pawn will appeal to audiences of all ages, especially those that suspect powerful forces, working behind the scenes, control events that shape the future.

The book was inspired by Elie Wiesel’s words honoring Holocaust victims, “. . . protect the future of humanity from such evil recurring.”
