Working Title: Out of the Blue (new working title, but not sure this is "the one" either)
Out of the Blue is a 90,000 word traditional mystery about a former investigative journalist who finds forgiveness and redemption through investigating the murder of an elderly woman. Set in Buffalo, NY it ties into the regional history of the Pan American Expo of 1901.
The Laurel Highlands seem idyllic, but for Trooper First Class Jim Duncan it's anything but peaceful as he investigates the murder of a visitor from Pittsburgh, a local politician's wife, the director of the local 4H chapter, and others in this series of short fiction.
