A body is seated at the head of a conference table in the ACC boardroom in Minneapolis. A pearl-handled revolver is still clutched in the executive’s left hand—an entry wound in his left temple. The Board of Directors insists the company’s new president committed suicide.Paul Davis? Suicide?Detective Ray Schiller isn’t buying it. After twenty years of waiting to take over his late father-in-law’s company, why would Davis kill himself within twenty-four hours of succeeding? Ray knew the man from a recent case. He didn’t like Davis then or now, but he plans to see justice done all the same.The Board and Davis’s successor are quick to answer Ray and his partner Dick Waverly’s questions, but their actions suggest they’re hiding something. Unfortunately, they’re not the only ones keeping secrets—not by a long shot.Ray’s case and personal life both fall victim to complications, and what originally seemed to be a relatively straightforward case takes a turn that puts Ray and Waverly’s lives in serious jeopardy. From the author of the much acclaimed Dear Crossing, Marjorie Swift Doering’s new book would appeal to anyone interested in the best of crime thrillers and mystery

Marjorie Doering was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at a very early age. Okay, seriously now…At ten months of age she was whisked from Milwaukee to a tiny town (our phone number was 55!) where her father bought and ran a successful eighteen-hole golf course. While a brother, a sister, two uncles, and a number of cousins were drawn to the golf profession, Marjorie set down her golf clubs and picked up a pen. At forty, her husband introduced her to a computer (a love-hate relationship) and her writing left the hobby stage, and a serious desire to entertain a reading audience took over. There have been dozens of multi-genre short stories and even several one-act plays, but the Ray Schiller Mystery Series is her current focus. Dear Crossing was followed by Shadow Tag, which was followed by Targeted. The fourth Ray Schiller police procedural/mystery, Web of Silence will be out soon.Meanwhile, she and her husband Denny live in NW Wisconsin with their Springer spaniel and three crazy, lovable cats.
