In this entertaining suspense novel, Kansas City detectives Tom Griggs and Charlie Pasch of the
KCPD/FBI Organized Crime Joint Task Force, must table their murder investigation of two
competing crime families to find missing KC billionaire, Warren Blake. Blake’s wife, Evelyn
(dubbed “Queen Evel” by her employees), seizes her opportunity to take control of Blake
Complicating matters are Evelyn’s new religion editor, Judge Gideon Judge, a scam artist with
designs on Evelyn; and a mysterious Blogger spilling insider secrets, bent on stirring-up
suspicion about Evelyn’s mismanagement of Blake Media, and her involvement in Warren
Blake’s disappearance. As Detective Pasch explains, “This entire story is about stolen
identity. Like Mozart’s opera, The Marriage of Figaro, or Eddie Murphy’s movie, Trading
Places, it’s filled with jealousy, betrayal, and lots of people in disguise…, everything’s
connected. A good detective always connects the dots.”
