Breached is a novel about adults surviving personal betrayal. Norm Dennison dies of an apparent shooting accident before he can prove to the homeowners around Lake Hannah that Vernon Brost, a developer, has launched an elaborate scheme to defraud them. The threat to Brost's plans does not go away with Dennison's death, however, as Dennison's widow turns over the dead man's files to Art Nichols, a Lake Hannah resident and a friend of the retired detective, James Raker. Thugs ransack Nichols' home to recover the documents. Not finding them, they decide to break into Raker's home where they are surprised by Raker's girl friend, Diane Welborn. Welborn is knocked unconscious and the house is set ablaze. Together Nichols, a Viet Nam veteran, and Raker begin tracking down the intruders. Welborn is hospitalized in serious condition. While in a coma, she recalls her painful childhood, her unsuccessful first marriage and her struggles to find fulfillment after her divorce. Raker and Nichols stay in pursuit of the men who attacked Welborn in hopes of spoiling the swindle and bringing the men to justice..

About the Author:

John J. Hohn has been writing all of his life. His first story was published in nationally circulated Pilot magazine when he was just 10-years-old. He has won several awards for his poetry of the years. Though he majored in English at St. John University in Minnesota, he did not pursue a career in writing, but chose instead a 40 year career in the financial services industry. Over that time, he held positions with The Travelers, Blue Cross/Blue Shied of Minnesota and Wilson Learning Corporation in Minneapolis. Hohn moved to North Carolina in 1978 where he joined Wachovia Bank and Trust and retired after 16 years from Merrill Lynch in Winston-Salem. While still working full-time, Hohn published a book of poetry in 2000. Once retired, he published his first novel, Deadly Portfolio: A Killing in Hedge Funds in 2011. His sequel Breached came out October, 2014. John Hohn and his wife divide their time each year between a cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains near West Jefferson, NC, and a cottage in the village of Southport NC, on the banks of The Cape Fear River. Between them, Hohn and his wife has six grown children.
