Private Detective Mark Hatchett is back. This time he searches for the truth about a very random and very out-of-the-ordinary homicide.
Inspired by a true case—in Death Happens, Hatchett is hired by wealthy Helen Lancaster to get to the bottom of the death of her adult son, Tony, a leftover child of the sixties who wanted to go his own way. Was he killed in jail, by druggies, the mob, or maybe even a voice from the past? Hatchett is paired with Sheriff’s Investigator Priscilla Duncan, an obstinate and impetuous young woman searching for respect, and the two run out each lead one by one—while trying to keep from getting killed.
Death Happens is about the contrast between conflict and peace, stress and relief, and wisdom and folly.
