A senseless murder.

A calculating sniper.

A ruthless judge.

And a detective who won't quit.

When a senseless murder takes place in the streets of D.C., Detective Jacob Hayden is assigned to the case. However, during the course of the investigation, a calculating sniper on the roof of a nine story building takes aim and pulls the trigger into Dupont Circle's park. Detective Hayden leads an intense manhunt for the kind of killer that he'd never come across before.

Meanwhile, prominent D.C. Superior Court Judge, Frank Peters, comes under investigation when an associate is murdered. Judge Peters is known to be a hot head, and the last thing you want is to be on his bad side.

Follow Jacob's investigations and see how the sniper and judge are linked to an operation that changes Jacob's life forever.

The suspense is nail biting.

About the Author

I love to write stories that capture the imagination of the reader to the point that by the time they’re done with the book, they didn’t realize that hours had passed by. My passion is writing suspense stories, or better yet, stories that keep the reader on their feet trying to guess the outcome of the book. There’s no better feeling than receiving an email from a reader saying, “You had me on my toes the entire time. I just couldn’t put it down.” That’s what I aim to do. As of now I write a detective series where the main character is Jacob Hayden, a D.C. homicide detective who seems to find himself involved with the most peculiar cases. I hope you enjoy getting to know Jacob as much as I have.

Good story. Some of the word choices were odd and there were grammar errors throughout. The characters and idea behind the book made an exciting tale.

I would have given it five stars, I am getting tired of the same old plot of good cops bad cops and corrupt officials.

Another new author for me .... more characters to meet and greet. This is a terrific crime story. There's the detective, an honorable man, also a recovering alcoholic. There are cops on the take, a priest who is being blackmailed, a dishonest judge, a call girl with her own agenda, and a sniper. There's also illegal guns in crates, money laundering, and people winding up dead all over the place. Detective Jacob Hayden and his partner Detective Stephen Carter think they're going to break open a drug operation. They think wrong .... they find guns, a whole lot of guns. One of his confidential informants puts him in the path of a sniper who may or may not be working for a dishonest judge. When he gets too close to the truth, his wife is killed. The detective throws everything out the window and goes to avenge his wife's death. There are a couple of major twists ... ones I absolutely did not see coming. The vernacular rings true. The characters are fleshed out and even though there are many players in this 'game', they are all easy to follow. The storyline is fast paced. This is the first of many starring Detective Hayden. I can hardly wait to see what the author has in store for him after this. 4.5 stars
