Candidates are off and running in the New Hampshire Presidential Primary race. Hugh Quint goes to a coffee to meet front-runner Freddy Foster and lands in the middle of a bizarre murder scene. When backwoods political watchdog Garth Mackey stumbles on a second body, the ex-Boston officer agrees to investigate the fast-talking pack of suspects. Dark-horse Willie Dowd trots his rally up Mount Monadnock, runs into spin-doctor Carla Unger, and springs into the national limelight. Then salacious photographs drag Rebecca Casey and Freddy Foster in the dirt. Boy-on-the-bus Andy Hoyt jockeys for a scoop and bets are on that he'd kill for a Pulitzer. Hugh's running a dead heat nearly to the finish. But with a few tricks of his own, and help from his mole Proctor Hammond, he out-stumps the cleverest of them.

About the Author:

Steve Sherman has traveled with "the boys on the bus" as a newspaper reporter interviewing Presidential primary candidates. His fact and fiction have appeared in many newspapers and magazines, inluding The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Esquire, Yankee and Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine. Private investigator Hugh Quint frequents some of the same territory Sherman writes about in his four nature trails and country roads guidebooks.
