Greed, Betrayal, and Murder Stain an Ivied Mansion Community Along Newport, Rhode Island's Rugged Shores in Murder on the Rocks, a Crime Mystery by Fred Lichtenberg

—Present Day – Paris, Rhode Island, and New York City—

While flying to New York from Paris, Detective Hank Reed is approached by Patrice Dubois, who fears her American fiancé, Luke Dupont, an investigative reporter, is in danger. Intrigued by the beautiful Parisian and her plight, Reed agrees to help find the reporter who is in the thick of a whistleblower investigation in Newport, Rhode Island.

But Hank's investigation quickly reveals that Luke doesn't want to be found and is traveling with an attractive woman named Elena, who is an informant, a lover, or both. At Luke's betrayal, Patrice returns to Paris, but Hank suspects there's more than romance at play.

As an elaborate multi-million dollar Medicare fraud unfolds, the body of the apparent whistleblower washes up below Newport's Cliff Walk convincing Hank that Luke and Elena are in serious danger.

With millions at stake, the body count rising, and perpetrators willing to stop at nothing, a determined killer sets sights on Hank.

About the Author

"Fred Lichtenberg is a native New Yorker who lives with his wife in Jupiter, Florida. He has one son. After spending a career as a Field Agent with the IRS, Lichtenberg changed gears from crunching numbers to creating fictitious villains and heroes. The Art of Murder, the first book in the Hank Reed Series, begins with the murder of an outside celebrity living in a small community on Long Island. Panic reigns when dirty little secrets are about to be exposed in this psychological suspense thriller. Lichtenberg has just completed his second book in the Hank Reed Series. Murder on the Rocks takes Hank Reed (now a Suffolk County Detective) from Paris to Newport, Rhode Island, Boston, and New York City in search of a missing person presumably involved in a whistleblower investigation. The problem is it’s not Hank’s case, and the ramifications can be deadly.

Lichtenberg also wrote several stand-alone novels: Double Trouble — Mistaken identity grips this thriller when an identical twin separated at birth enters a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the mob. Deadly Heat at The Cottages: Sex, Murder, and Mayhem — Lichtenberg changed gears once more to write a humorous South Florida story with a wacky host of characters all living in a retirement community, where people are literally dying to move in. Murder 1040: The Final Audit is an action-packed suspense thriller that plunges readers into the complex realm of one of America’s most shrouded government agencies. The murder of an IRS agent in the West Palm Beach, Florida office triggers a desperate scramble to protect dark secrets within the agency. When those in power shut down the murder investigation, one man risks everything to find the killer and resolve his own mysterious past. Lichtenberg uses his insider knowledge from over thirty years with the IRS to craft a brilliant page-turner filled with love, sex, greed, and a whole lot more.

After three published murder mysteries, Lichtenberg turned his attention to retirement. During his research, he discovered many people approaching or in retirement don’t have a plan. Though humorous, Retired: Now What, addresses many serious issues.

In addition to writing mystery novels, Fred has written short stories and a one-act play titled The Second Time Around … Again, about finding love in a nursing home, performed at the Lake Worth Playhouse.
