When a banker is shot dead on the street and the police can’t find his killer, his widow calls in Sam Dane. The dead man’s friends say he didn’t lie, cheat or steal; Dane isn’t so sure. He follows a trail that leads to interplanetary politics, kidnapping, murder, torture, and money – lots and lots of money. Enough money to tempt even an honest man.
A science fiction detective thriller, this sequel to “In the Blood” delivers the same high tension thrills as the first book.
Mr. Sullivan is a sem-lifetime resident of Connecticut, worked for an insurance company before turning to programming in a language and utility so obscure even other professionals have never heard of them. He’s now pursuing writing and poverty as a profession.
He is interested in a wide range of subjects: fiction, particularly thrillers, science fiction, and mysteries (Alistair Maclean, Neal Stephenson, Rex Stout, Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, John Sandford, John D. Macdonald), history (particularly ancient history), language, science, and oddities (Velikovsky). He follows the Red Sox, shaking his head in dismay. He cooks and likes movies. He enjoys spending time with his friends and adult children.
