Facing A Twisted Judgment (Lies and Misdirection Book 2)

by K. J. McGillick

Guilty until proven innocent.

What happens when tunnel vision clouds a police investigation? Is it true that once you are labeled a person of interest you really are the prime suspect? Can you trust the legal system?  Probably not.

After a bitterly contested legal battle over inherited property, the hard-won art collection and its owner Samantha Bennington disappear. Both have vanished without a trace.

When blood spatter is discovered under the freshly painted wall of the room in which two of the paintings were hung, the theft becomes the opening act in a twisted tale of jealousy, revenge, and murder leading to a final judgment for all involved.

As the list of suspects narrows, the focus lands squarely on the husband. Some labeled Samantha’s husband a corrupt attorney, others an opportunist. Either way, he’s in the crosshairs of law enforcement and they are calling him a murderer. But is he the only viable suspect? What about the missing woman’s drug-addicted sister and her convicted felon brother? Both were furious over their loss in court and have more than enough reason to hate Samantha.  

Guilty until proven innocent leaves Alexander Clarke facing a twisted judgment.

One day, I’m working as a cash guard, shooting the tires off a stolen vehicle, and the next I’m a guard for the only daughter of high-profile mob boss, Marco Ventilli.

In fact, I’ve had her every way a man can have a woman, and if her father ever finds out, he’ll skin me alive and bury me six feet under the hot sands of Las Vegas.

I knew Sera looked like the worst kind of troubleâ??my gut told me she wasâ??but she swore otherwise, and I lapped up every single lie she fed me, like a Goddamn idiot.

All I had to do was keep the promise I made to my mother on her deathbed. Leave the Army, find a normal job and a good woman, and get on with my life.

Yeah. So much for thatâ??.

Matson’s Case No. 1

by Pablo Omar Zaragoza

Against a 1950s backdrop of New York City with racial underpinnings, Matson, the African American who now serves as chief of the city’s homicide squad, revisits his first unofficial assignment as he heads for another five-year review of the killer’s case. The multiple homicides, committed by a man riddled with guilt and remorse, were his recreations of the thirteen stations of the Cross, in reverse order. The killer hoped that the return of Christ would absolve him of his sins and return the love of his life.

Pablo Omar Zaragoza emigrated from Cuba to the United States in 1959. As exiles, his parents had difficulty making a living, and they moved to California, New York, and Las Vegas. Zaragoza graduated from medical school and did his residency in pathology, which he practiced for many years. Now semi-retired, he pursues his other passion: writing.

Susan Giffin, his co-author and creative partner, is an award-winning author and editor of more than 200 books for clients around the world. Prior to becoming an editor, she spent a number of years as a public relations practitioner, primarily in the field of medicine.

Matson – Case No. 1 is the co-authors’ third book to be published in 2017, following Protect the Guilty and Sour Life. Protect the Guilty won a 5-star review from a prestigious literary competition.

While investigating Tommy’s murder, Denny discovers pictures missing from Tommy’s meticulous collection. These photos not only hold the key to the killer’s identity, but may also prove Penny’s involvement in the murders. Embroiled in New York’s vibrant S&M subculture, Denny revisits old haunts: fetish clubs in Greenwich Village to find the killer who’s a step ahead of him – and maybe right behind him.
