Book Details

BUT HE WAS SUCH A GREAT GUY…….

Federal Judge T. Franklin “Teddy” Braxton was beloved by his family and admired by his peers. His immense wealth had put him at the pinnacle of New York City’s elite political and social worlds. So who murdered him in cold blood? Perhaps it was the nearly naked young woman found standing over his body with a .45 caliber pistol in her hand. Or perhaps not…. Detective Lieutenant Walter Hudson is in over his head, and he knows it, as he immediately begins to receive intense pressure to solve the case from both Mayor Deborah Kaplan and Police Commissioner Sean Donahue, both personal friends of the Judge. And he may be getting in over his head personally as well, as the judge’s beautiful daughter, Virginia, starts giving him more help than he’s looking for. He’ll need all the help he can get from Leviticus Welles, now a rising star in the NYPD’s Intelligence Division, to guide him through the maze of Teddy Braxton’s life as well as the tangle of his own emotions. But one thing Walter knows from the start is that there’s nothing placid at all about Placid Hollow.
