What starts out as a relatively low-level crime… insurance fraud… evolves quickly into a triple murder case in the up-scale community of Summit, New Jersey. A wealthy lawyer-turned politician is charged with brutally killing his socialite wife, while the real perpetrator goes on a killing spree to cover his crimes. The tension builds, as the defense team cannot seem to get over its internal wrangling. An ambitious, young, assistant-prosecutor steps over the line in her eagerness to convict the defendant. An unethical U.S. Congressman pulls strings in the background, and all the while the cunning killer, a psychopathic genius, does his share of devious meddling with the justice system.
“Mack,” a private investigator, and his side-kick Bob Higgins, struggle with the slim set of facts they have to go on. Will the good guys win in the end? Will our client be exonerated? Maybe, but not after a crazy gallop through the halls of justice and a lot of head-scratching sessions with no shortage of bad-tempered outbursts. The story builds to a last-minute court room blockbuster ending.
“Loose Ends,” with its twists and turns and realistic dialogue is a cliff-hangar that seizes the reader’s curiosity. What can possibly happen next!

Watts has drawn upon his many years as a private investigator to entertain his readers with a tale of depraved murder and perversion of the justice system. A fun read!
