About this title

Synopsis:

Washington, D.C., where our true history is made in the shadows. The corrupt and violent Presidency of Richard Nixon. A country at war with itself. An era that crystalized around a third-rate burglary called Watergate.

An era that slams into three good men:

Police officer John Quinn, from battle-scarred rookie to savvy undercover street cop, obsessed by the murder of one woman, seeking redemption through the love of another, and locked into a lethal battle with a mobster that rockets Quinn into the nation's most profound political scandal.

Marine officer Nathan Holloway, haunted by the honor and horrors of the war grinding through Vietnam, ordered to spy on the White House for the Pentagon, and trapped in deadly conspiracies that violate his heart.

Senate aide Vaughn Conner, an idealist prosecuting the sins of a president only to have his own sins and success make him a target of evils he never imagined.

These men and women they love collide with a swirl of history so fantastic that its truths read like fiction, and there, in that netherworld between flesh and fantasy, City of Shadows blasts a .45 slug of what-if? through the genres of crime novels, political thrillers and historical dramas with its pulse-pounding, action-driven saga of good and evil, tragedy and triumph.

About the Author:

As a journalist, Dalton has covered organized crime, intelligence agencies, and national politics. Under other names, he is the author of numerous critically acclaimed crime novels.
