A brutal murder.
A heinous secret
A deadly conspiracy.

The brutal murder of the little old lady next door puts FitzHugh Donovan on the case. A retired New York City Police Chief, he knows a cover-up when he sees one and his Irish Cop conscience can’t let that happen. 

Now, Fitz, his family and his quirky band of Bleecker Street Irregulars are ensnared in the bizarre secret the woman died to protect.

Is this a 75-year-old cold case turned hot again, or an unspeakable crime-in-progress that could alter the course of the world?

Fitz doesn’t yet know how high the stakes are, that failure isn’t an option, and that the little old lady was so much more than she appeared. But he’s trying to keep everyone alive long enough to find out.

Characters you’ll care about, dark shocking secrets, and disturbing similarities to today’s political scene, will keep you turning pages to an ending you won’t see coming.


Chapter 3

Maeve Donovan snatched up the phone on the first ring. Her nerves had been ratcheting up unreasonably since her father left the house twenty minutes before. No need to be so on edge, she chided herself, but that was the problem with being semi-psychic—you often got hints of trouble in advance, but they were never explicit enough to know what the hell to do.
Her father’s voice was deep, serious. His “cop” voice, but husky with controlled emotion.
“She’s dead, sweetheart,” he said without preamble. “I’ve called the precinct, but didn’t want you alarmed when the black-and-whites roar up outside. The place has been ransacked. It’s a ruin of trashed books, papers, and all that fine old bric-a-brac she lived amidst. She was stabbed, tortured. It’s ugly.”
“I’ll be right there!”
“No, luv. It’s a crime scene now.  The Crime Scene Unit will be here any minute. I’ll get home as soon as I can, but that might not be for a while, considering I was probably the last one to see her alive, other than the bastard who did this. They’ll need my statement.” He took a breath. “And, Maeve, luv, do me a favor. Call Finn and tell her to take a cab home—tell her I’ll pay for it, since she worries about money. And lock the doors and windows until we find out what this is all about, will you, darlin’?”
“Okay,” she said, unconvinced. Now she knew why her hackles had been doing a jig. This was going to suck them all in, sure as God made little green apples. She didn’t know how exactly, but it would suck them all in.
