The local Westchester police turn to One Police Plaza when a high profile murder lands in their backyard. Captain Sam Jefferies takes the case and assigns it to two ex-police detectives turned private investigators.
Kevin Whitehouse possesses a keen analytical mind necessary for deconstructing especially challenging cases, while his partner David Allerton functions as the embodiment of the skills he honed from his Special Forces – Army Rangers training. Margaret Alexander, Kevin’s feisty yet nurturing lover, enhances the duo’s investigative powers with her own unique perspective on their case.
The murder leads the two detectives into the glitzy and tawdry side of Manhattan’s nightlife, encountering both the guilty and the innocent as they follow the leads that bring them to the brink of madness and despair — as well as test the limits of friendship and loyalty. The Cover of Darkness is an unforgettable thriller that takes the reader on a journey through the dark forces overhanging a soulless city, and reveals the ties that sever rather than bind.
