It all starts one night with a strange telephone call to Connie Marz, a Specialty Leasing Manager with a local shopping mall. As she finishes up paperwork, Connie rubs the tight muscles on her neck and moves her hands to work on her temples to relieve the pressures of life. The sound she hears through the telephone receiver is familiar. She pauses for a short moment to figure it out, and then gasps when she realizes it is her own voice!
Drop into the mixture a mysterious mall walker’s disappearance, cozy American and Russian government agents spying on one another, an unlikely love relationship, and one person with the courage to put it all to an end. This mystery is full of curves that come at you one after another, giving you little time to prepare for the next twist. Characters agonize over their self doubts and pleasure at their misplaced sense of superiorities.
It all sounds crazy, and to someone it is. You won’t want to wait to read the final page to know how it all comes together, but you will. After all, this is a mystery novel!

Rand Bauge never thought he was simply working for wages when he was employed by the U. S. Government, although there were enough situations that would contradict that notion. He got things done any way he could; usually it was his way. No one seemed to care about the means that he used. Questions were rarely asked. Only the results mattered. He and his boss saw eye to eye on their relationship because it worked well for a good long time. Things are now different. He's on his own, retirement urged upon him against his wishes. The panic call he got from his second wife threw him for a loop ... something bad had gone wrong at home. He's got to get there fast before it is too late. However, along the way, unintended surprises block his advancement. Who's really out to get him? This might be his biggest test ever ... will he make it through the ordeal?
Were the original police investigation and medical report composed of half-truths and shadowy suppositions resulting from incompetence? Were lies purposely told to conceal the truth? Were there other suspects not investigated? What really happened?
This is fiction, but is so powerful it could be real. You will admire some of the characters while despising others. When you think you’ve figured out what is going on, you realize there are other clues that dangle, screaming to be told. Then, when you add to the mix the card of love, you realize that what you thought was true no longer is. The final riddle’s answer is up to you.
