Lou Corso, the tough ex-LAPD detective and owner of the busy Peck Security firm, is wrestling with the issue of turnover at work, a host of new employees and the need for new quarters. The whole office is stressed. So imagine how Lou feels late one evening when the plaintive cries of an animal in distress take him outside his home to find a kitten nailed to his front door. Lou is too late to save the poor creature, but as he is absorbing the threatening implications of the act, he receives a phone call. The voice is low and crazy. It is obvious that a seriously deranged person has targeted Lou for violence. Lou's work with battered women has made him a target of angry husbands in the past, but only a few seem psychotic enough to pull such a sick stunt. As Lou's family and friends become victims of violent attacks, Lou must figure out the real motive. Is it an abusive husband taking revenge or are the attacks connected to one of the cases his firm is handling? Lou knows that his life and the lives of his loved ones depend on finding the truth and finding it fast!

About the Author:

Carter Swart began writing in 1979, prompted by nearly three years of idleness resulting from a 1976 bout with Guillain-Barre syndrome, a disease that left him a lifetime paraplegic. Nevertheless, he returned to his career in the banking industry in 1980 and for the next ten years concentrated on fulfilling his career goals. After thirty-three years with the Bank of America, he took early retirement in March 1989. To date he has published over one hundred and fifty magazine articles and fictional stories in such magazines as Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine, Hardboiled, P.I. Magazine, White Knuckles, Blood Review, and Into the Darkness. His credits span the spectrum from thoroughbred racing historicals, to business journals, and to mainstream, mystery, horror, and fantasy short stories. Carter is the author of the mystery series featuring ex-LAPD cop, Lou Corso that includes Deceived by Death, Insufficient Evidence, The End Game, April Evil, Old Sins, Lethal Purpose, Hunting Evil, Murderville and the latest, Double Trouble. In addition to mysteries, Carter has authored three westerns, Bitter Creek, The Dunnigans, and his most recent, Nightingale. When not at the computer, Carter reads the classics, listens to Italian opera, watches English mysteries on the telly, and corresponds with his four daughters. He lives with his artist wife, Bonnie, in Crescent City, California. You can visit Carter at his website: http://home.earthlink.net/~ceswart/index2.html
