A one-million-dollar retainer from a famous Hollywood movie mogul and all expenses paid. Simply to prove the innocence of three men wrongly convicted of the cold-blooded murder of three eight-year-old children three decades in the past. What a deal. Fun times and money to burn. What could possibly go wrong? Plenty-if your name happens to be Johnny O'Brien. Thirty years ago, three eight-year-old boys entered a summer woods, never to emerge again-alive that is. Their naked, butchered and lifeless bodies were discovered the next day, and three young area men were soon arrested and convicted for the sensational triple homicide. Finally released from prison after serving nearly two decades, a famous Hollywood movie producer and director engages the professional services of private detective Johnny O'Brien to reinvestigate the old crime and prove the innocence of the three men. What's more, he means business-BIG business, offering Johnny the retainer of a cool one-million dollars, and a no limit platinum credit card. Intrigued by the old cold case, Johnny and his wife, Maggie, embark on what will soon become a personal crusade to uncover the truth and reveal the real reason for the riveting and shockingly ugly crime that had gripped the nation so long ago. Based on a real-life crime. Lee Capp is the author of three previous Johnny O'Brien mystery novels (with a twist of fantasy) in The Watchmaker series: Time Enough to Die: Book One, Elliott Bay: Book Two, and The Reckoning: Book Three.
