About this Book

The Phoenix Police department is reeling from the shocking murder and mutilation of one of their own.

Lt. Nick Greer and Sgt. Sonny Madison are on the case, and discover this is not an isolated incident, but part of a series of murders reaching thousands of miles away.

Though hampered by a vindictive superior, job changes, and estranged relationships, Nick and Sonny race to stay ahead of the FBI, as this mystery takes them from the deserts of Phoenix to the rolling hills of Pennsylvania, and to the scenic shores of the Chesapeake Bay in search of meager clues that lead to nowhere.

Love is lost and friendships are threatened, as infidelity, deception, and murder weave their way through this mystery and impact the detectives own lives.

Finally, things begin to come together, a plan is conceived, a trap is set, and the murders are solved, but not before one of our heroes goes down.

A Review

Feel free to use all or part of the following, and edit to suit. This content was prepared for your use. We ask no acknowledgement of any kind.

In C. P. Holsinger's second mystery novel, The Vein to the Heart, the city of Phoenix finds itself terrorized by a serial killer.

Lt. Nick Greer's vacation is cut short when he is jolted from his sleep in the middle of the night by the ringing of his cell phone. A body has been found in a canal. He is shocked to find it is the body of his friend and mentor, Captain Mendoza of the Phoenix Police Department.

Infidelity and murder weave their way throughout this mystery, and infect Nick Greer, himself. While he tries to cope with a new job, and a love lost, he searches for a clue, any clue to help solve the murder of his friend. In the meantime, more bodies are found, with one commonality, leading him to believe a serial killer is on the loose.

With the clues coming together, the trap is set, but not before another close friend goes down. The crescendo builds to a shocking climax.

Be prepared to turn the pages as this mystery, though set in Phoenix, Arizona, takes Lt. Greer and the unpredictable Sgt. Sonny Madison to western and eastern Pennsylvania, and to the inner shores of the Chesapeake Bay.

The Vein to the Heart was published by Foremost Press. It can be ordered through local bookstores and at, Amazon and Barnes &
