In the streets of Harrisburg, a man is killed in what appears to be a straightforward hit-and-run - until the victim turns out to have no identity whatsoever. Obituary writer Lenny Holcomb's ability to glimpse the secrets of his column's subjects leads him to suspect that his old friend, ex-congressman George Packard, may have had a hand in the "accident.” But if so, why do all the clues point to Packard's slick political rival?
With the help of ambitious reporter Jacqueline Towers, Lenny follows a trail of political spin and corruption to the highest levels of Pennsylvania government - where the right influence can make any problem disappear. Unfortunately, some very powerful people think Lenny Holcomb has just become a problem...
In his sequel to Fatal Dead Lines, John Luciew doubles the action and triples the suspense. And the odds against Lenny Holcomb ever finding the truth couldn't be higher. It's a rip-roaring political yarn with an authentic, torn-from-the-headlines feel. You won't be able to put it down.
