The Vein to the Heart
by C. P. Holsinger
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.
