A Murder Mystery Novel

Murder of the Prodigal Father

A philandering son returns home to bury his father, only to find he cannot bury his father’s womanizing legacy.

When Air Force crew chief Connor Pierce returns home for his estranged father’s funeral, he hopes it will put an end to the legacy of cheating that haunts his own life–domestic unrest finds him at a family event without his wife and children. It’s a trait he inherited despite the damage it caused during his own childhood.

Shocked to discover his father was murdered–but not surprised that nobody in his hometown cares, Connor takes on the role of amateur sleuth to solve the small town mystery. Only, discovering the truth means he’ll need to team up with the high school cohorts he abandoned… an alluring ex-lover he left at the altar, and his once closest friend who became a local Deputy Sheriff.

As he uncovers the scandalous family secrets that led to his father’s death, Connor stumbles closer to lustful abandon with his old flame, locks horns with the local law and ultimately finds himself targeted by the ruthless killer.

Can Connor come to grips with his father’s legacy of lust, before the murderer catches up with him?

From the newest of Montana mystery authors, a story of domestic malice, sexual betrayal, and redemption.

I can’t persuade myself that one of the problems facing the planet today might be a shortage of books by me.
