From the Cover: 'FBI forensic artist Sydney Fitzpatrick questions the guilt of the man about to be executed for her father's murder twenty years earlier. The first stirrings of doubt occur when one of her forensic sketches on an unrelated case brings forth memories about her father's homicide that she'd hoped to forget. A mysterious envelope arrives in the mail on the anniversary of her father's death. She opens the packet and discovers a blackmail letter written by her father, an old photo of his army buddies, and a deposit slip from a bank long closed. Refusing to believe that her father was involved in any blackmail scheme, she searches for evidence to clear his name. Her investigation leads to a trail of corruption by high-ranking US political officials, and a meticulous and deadly cover-up by the military and the CIA. The more Special Agent Fitzpatrick digs into her father's past, the more she finds it riddled with dark secrets and truths, including the fact that her father's seemingly ordinary military career was anything but stellar or even routine.'
It's another Guess What moment! I was on one of my favorite blogs, The Lipstick Chronicles, Harely Jane Kozak blogs here, as well as several other great authors and guest bloggers, http://thelipstickchronicles.typepad.com/. This week's guest blogger is Robin Burcell, another new author for me. She is a criminal investigator in California and retired police officer as well as an author. Harper Collins is offering the first 65 pages on her new book, Face of a Killer online(part of the Sydney Fitzpatrick series), [see sidebar gadget]. Wow, what an exciting read! The main character, Syd, is a 33 year old FBI artist/agent. The story is just starting to unfold for me, but I've ordered the book, as well as Deadly Legacy and Cold Case (part of the Kate Gillespie series), Fatal Truth and Every Move She Makes were unavailable at this time, but I'll probably be able to locate them online.
