9780997096507: Two Dead and Counting... (Underdog Detective)

Frederick Hernandez thought he had opened his eyes, but it was still pitch black. He tried to lift his arm, but he couldn t raise a single limb. He tried to speak, but nothing came out. Gradually, he realized he was moving. Here s your dead guy, a man announced as the moving sensation ceased. Stick him in the vault, another man said. I ve got two autopsies to finish before I can start that one. Terror ricocheted through Frederick s body like a high-voltage electrical shock, causing his heart to jolt and then to flatline. Frederick Hernandez was the second patient to die but, unfortunately, not the last. When detective Jack Kendall s best friend dies, he makes a graveside vow to get to the bottom of it. Christine, his best friend s widow, hires attorney Cedric Johnson to file a wrongful death suit, but Jack is far too impatient to leave the investigative work up to him, and apparently he s not the only one. It seems Stacy Young a legal assistant in Cedric Johnson s office has been suspicious of Cedric for some time now. When her boss, Joshua Royce, won t take her suspicions seriously, she tells Jack about a mysterious courier who comes in after hours to exchange messages between Cedric and an anesthesiologist in what she suspects is an insurance scam that is earning them a sizable fortune. Jack isn t convinced, but he agrees to look over the information she offers to deliver the next day only she goes missing, and he has clearly become a target. Jack trades on the knowledge that reality isn t always what it seems, but the clues in this case lead to a scheme that is so complex, it keeps him guessing right till the end. Two Dead and Counting... Prepare yourself for the unexpected. You may think you have it figured it out, but I assure you, you don t! As the true nature of this crime is unveiled, you will wonder could this happen in real life? Search it out for yourself. It is a frightening prospect indeed. Richard Schwartz

About the Author:

Richard Schwartz, a lifetime resident of Jackson, Mississippi, practices law at Richard Schwartz and Associates, one of the largest plaintiffs law firms in the state of Mississippi. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Millsap s College and a Juris Doctor Degree from the University of Mississippi School of Law in 1981. He served as Assistant City Prosecutor for the City of Jackson for ten years, and the City Prosecutor for Ridgeland for two years. Richard stays actively involved in the community and participates with numerous charities, especially those related to children. Over the years, I ve seen many situations where we, as the victim s attorneys, were the only hope an injured person had of receiving true justice. My personal desire to help the underdogs in our society has led to the creation of the main character in my novels, Detective Jack Kendall, who feels very much like I do about helping those less fortunate.

Review:

What a fun read! Great characters, great story lines, and a riveting who-done-it that kept me in suspense. The way all the stories wrapped up near the end was a real surprise. I was sad when I finished the book, but excited to hear that the main character, Jack Kendall, will be back in an upcoming mystery! This is a valiant effort by a first-time novelist. "Two Dead and Counting"Two Dead and Counting... is a good indicator that John Grisham won't be the only best-selling lawyer/author from Mississippi! RIchard Schwartz has a real gift of storytelling that keeps readers turning pages! Susan Marquez - Amazon Review Very well written from the beginning to the end. Just when you thought you had it figured out, you're proved wrong. I love a good suspense book. Wilma Allen - Amazon Review Great book!! I couldn't put it down and finished in a week. I wanted the story to continue and can't wait for the next one. Pat Holden - Amazon Review Proving once again that attorneys make great writers !! Move over John !! Hate to use a cliche, but .... it's a real page turner !! Don't think you've got it all figured out, this author can outsmart you in the courtroom and on the printed page ! Wanda G - Amazon Review
