About the Book

A US senator and his mistress have been assassinated on the eleventh-floor balcony of their hotel room – no witnesses. Detective Scott Blade, LA Homicide is asked to head a fugitive task force to solve the crime. Blade enlists Detective Coraline Steele, Beverly Hills Homicide, his fiancée, to join the hunt for the assassin. Before they get geared up, a second senator from another State is assassinated in his boat while fishing alone –no immediate body.

FBI agent Tomaso Girardi is sent by presidential assignment to meet with the detectives to gather pertinent information about the murders. Their investigation reveals a sinister plot inside the executive branch to overthrow the current president.

Professor Stuart, a brilliant engineer/Astronomer calls LA Homicide describing a long-distance photo his students took, showing what clearly looks like a drone whizzing past the hotel at the time of the first senator’s death.

Paralleling the murder investigation, another story begins to unfold – that of an ex-Army pilot that seems to have changed names and is the potential killer. Driven by mind-altering drugs and evil government manipulators, Curt Doyle, aka Viper, is on a mission to annihilate corrupt politicians. But will he stay true to his directives? He begins to wonder who is controlling him and why.

As Doyle’s mind clears, he decides to defy his “orders” and use his drone one more time…

The search begins for Viper and his drone. The ‘game is afoot’ for both parties.
