Another Free Book

This time it will be free for two days. Donato & Daughter starts its run on March 13th through March 14th.
Originally published  under my pseudonym, Jack Early.  Later it came out under my own name.

Here's a synopsis from the book jacket:

A serial killer is stalking nuns on the streets of New York. Can he be caught in time to prevent the next atrocious slaying, in time to keep the elite task force ranged against him from being taken off the case? Lieutenant Dina Donato leads this group of seven seasoned officers; but for her own partner she chooses the best cop for the job, her estranged father, currently exiled to one of the city’s worst precincts because of an old unsolved case involving his son.
In this multileveled thriller, a monstrous criminal must be identified; a troubled history; and a police lieutenant must confront everywoman’s task; the conflicting demands of job, child and, in Dina’s case, a love affair with another task force member.

Unrelentingly suspenseful, Donato & Daughter charts the excruciating, minute-by-minute search to find the psychopath whose ritualistic killings only begin to reveal something about him to the cops, while readers come to know him intimately and agonize as time after time he outwits the law.

In this complex story of an Italian-American family, the events satisfyingly converge in a climax both astonishing and shattering.
