About the Book

A superstar American athlete is on the cusp of breaking an iconic sport’s record — when he is gunned down! The murder is declared a hate crime, but no suspect is ever captured. Fans are furious. His tragic shooting is the last straw in a politically fueled debate on gun control; public upheaval forces the country to divide into two massive states: the super-progressive Frontier state and the ultra-conservative Pilgrim state. Sixty-years later, Pilgrim state’s Detective Merit relies on highly-advanced technology to solve homicides in under an hour, but when the top investigator decides to crack the historic shooting of the famed athlete, he faces a major problem—he’s never worked a cold case! Having to travel to the hyper-liberal state of Frontier without his sophisticated crime-solving equipment, he must investigate the old-fashioned way—with blood, sweat, and tears. But can this gun-toting, God-fearing detective survive the culture shock of Frontier’s lawless society, resist its promiscuous temptations, and fight off cop-killers in time to unravel the mystery surrounding the nation’s infamous ‘Shot that split America?’
