A Case of Infatuation

Another fabulous cover! And a great story inside, too. That Mitch Malone is quite a guy. Here's the back cover text:

Crime Beat Reporter Mitch Malone’s rules are simple: He never lets the blood and guts he covers bother him. He always works alone. And he hates kids.

Mitch breaks all three rules when he unwittingly agrees to smuggle a potential witness out of a suburban Michigan home while police investigate a mob-style-hit that’s left two dead bodies. Mitch sends his intern (a real hottie, but nonetheless an interloper) to interview neighbors, hoping to throw her off, but when he finds the pint-sized survivor the killer overlooked, he decides she might be helpful.

When the FBI accuses him of the murder, Mitch goes into hiding with the bombshell intern who doesn’t talk and the precocious preschooler. Mitch works his contacts to regain his freedom from his roommates only to find they each hold keys to a bizarre story of disappearances, terrorists and the perfect hamburger recipe.

This is a great get your iced tea and head out to the patio with this Dark Oak Mystery!

I loved this one!!! Gager deftly draws Malone’s character, making his investigative drive and social ineptitude endearing. Everyone needs to buy a copy.
