Beach City has a long and checkered history. One of the most beautiful beachfront communities on the east coast, it was once summertime home to gangsters and movie stars. Century-old political infighting led the police commissioner to murder the mayor. In some ways, little has changed. An unintentional death gave birth to fear, which blossomed into corruption, followed by evil that grew and built on itself, until it took over an entire city.
DORA ELLISON would never dream of investigating a murder, but when her beloved police Lt. Francesca “Franny” Hart is coaxed by a disguised voice on repeated phone calls to investigate a “murder that wasn’t a murder” and tragedy strikes, the enraged natural-born fighter won’t let it stand … NOT TODAY – Dora Ellison Mystery Series, Book 1.
Will Dora bring a twisted murderer to justice, despite being the killer’s next target?
Dora’s quest for justice reveals the source of rampant Beach City corruption, defended by a cabal that includes the killer behind the caller’s accusations, and their brutal enforcer, who is every bit as enraged and wounded as Dora herself.
