The Police Department of Schenectady, New York has handled its fair share of run-of-the-mill crimes. The brutal murder of a cop's sister, however, is no ordinary crime—especially where there is little evidence to go by.

When the sister of a local cop is brutally murdered, the entire community of Schenectady, New York feels as if it has lost one of its own.

This is a murder mystery so I don’ ...more

In crafting this book, I set out to write a murder mystery/legal thriller that was different from the rest. One that didn't follow the typical pattern or have the typical ending. I thought my legal experience - which traverses the intricacies of both criminal and civil law - placed me in a unique position to devise a plot that was unmatched in its legal ingenuity and complexity, but still maintained a seamless and easy-to-read quality. I'm curious to know if you think I've achieved that. I hope ...more
