Cover artist: Tina Lynn Stout

False face must hide what the false heart doth know.”

Williams Shakespeare, Macbeth.

A murder in a park, and a new detective finds an old conspiracy.

Henry Ike Pierce is a junior detective in Alexandria, Virginia, newly hired to reassess cold-case killings. On the third day of his new job, a dismembered body appears in a local park. The corpse’s desecration is like slayings from over two decades ago, and his boss assigns Henry to his first investigation. He must uncover the present-day killer while his boss pushes him to resolve crimes from the past. Rumors point to a killer called ‘the hooded one.’ 

Henry seeks a killer within a community of rival ethnic groups, refugees from the 1990s Balkan wars. The recent murder in the park triggers the old passions, leading again to central Europe and a tangle of new intrigue. Money can smooth old hurts, manipulate feelings, and alter allegiances, but finding the guilty is a hopeless task if discoveries are unwelcome.

Distrust, betrayals, conspiracies–the young man from western Virginia’s coal country discovers that ‘trust’ has a flexible definition.

From the incredible voice(s) of Tom Haire, the audiobook version of Peculiar Activities.
