Ironton, New Jersey has seen hard times before. Deserted factories and empty stores reflect the decades-long decline, that even Mayor Gabriel Richman, scion of one of the city’s leading political families, cannot seem to rectify. Now families are living on the street or in the shells of the old factories.
A week-long tropical storm floods the depressed city bringing more devastation as well as a new misery: The headless, handless body of a young woman in the Old Iron Bog.
Between the gruesome murder and an old factory suspiciously burning down, Detective Frank Nagler begins to believe that incarcerated Charlie Adams, the city’s famous serial killer, may have fostered a copycat killer. Determined to find the truth, he follows the case that leads into unexpected places.
“Great job, looking forward to more of Frank’s adventures”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Otto Driver
Don’t generally read fiction, this was so well written it had the flavor of fact not fiction. Both the characters and the situations were real. Great job, looking forward to more of Frank’s adventures.
About the Author
Navy brat, with roots in both New England and Deep South. First story I ever wrote was about a rock band based on my high school band formed with three friends. Oh, that early touch of fame (Ha!). Long career in newspapers, a great place to learn how to write and observe. Working on stories that reflect the places I’ve lived, populated with characters I invent.
