Blue Ink Review (starred review)

Find Out What Everyone Is Talking About...

Will Pollitt is broke. His marriage is over. His business is failing. And now his father and neighbors are turning up dead. WTF!

“A top-shelf crime thriller.” – BestThrillers.com
“I didn’t want to stop.” – Mystery Suspense Reviews

Gambling tore my marriage and family apart. All I have left is my marketing agency and my friend and business partner Robbie. He drinks too much.

If we don’t win this deal, a whole lotta bad is going to happen.

But I just found out my dad died. And his friends are dropping like flies! Sleepy Sandusky, Ohio is hiding a deep, dark secret.

I think everyone is in on it. But am I the one that’s crazy? Some people are trying to kill me! Am I going insane…or am I about to die?

From the Author - "If you love thrillers or mysteries, this book is for you. As a thriller reader myself, I've always preferred protagonists that aren't ex-FBI or someone with super powers. Will Pollitt, the main character, grew up as part of a funeral home family, but decided to follow his career passion in marketing. I know both of those worlds. I enjoyed wrapping them into a killing conspiracy that will make for a truly fun ride."
