She had no idea she was setting in motion events that would change her life and her company in ways she could not yet imagine., , , , As Jake begins to talk with people at Lindell Industries who had worked with Jane thirty years before, someone within the 120 billion dollar electronics and weapons company sends people to warn Jake off the case.

|Editorial Review||By William E Payne on April 29, 2016 Really enjoyed reading this book. It moved along with humor and an interesting plot. Sort of puts me in mind of Robert Parker's kind of novel. Excited to find anew author who can hold my interest to read every word! By Patricia J. La Vigne on July 1, 2015 Jake Badger, former military, former fighter, settles on a career of private investigator. June Morrison, daughter of the founder of Lindell Industries and CEO, wants to solve the mystery of her twin sister's disappearance 30 years ago. Jake agrees to take on the challenge, not even suspecting that attempted assassinations (yes, multiple), cross-country travel, the death of a witness whom he had just interviewed, and a young man, strictly a background character, who finds himself facing a whole new life. The reader experiences the intrigue of mystery as the inner workings of corporate strands in a multi-billion dollar industry begin to unravel throughout the chapters. Not until the end will the reader finally learn who is responsible for secrets held within the family business. The story is fast-paced with short chapters to stimulate the reader's desire to read without stopping. Dialogue is cleverly handled to avoid an overabundance of narration, keeping the reader involved in the story. The story is, as the author describes, a mystery thriller well worth taking the time to read. By Doug B. on October 27, 2015 What a ride! Rogers tells a story that reminds you of the detective stories of old. Lovable heroes, mysterious villains, and plot twists you don't see coming. There are also characters you would swear live on your block, confidence and bluster and friendly banter, and of course, just the right mix of murder and mayhem. Rogers has written another page turner that you won't be able to put down!|
