That is a question my hero FRANK HARMON faces in the book DARK WATER, which happens to be free today.
When Frank is called to a home during a domestic dispute, and he knows the woman is lying when she says she’s fine and nothing happened. Just a misunderstanding. He doesn’t back down easily, asking her to step outside, talk without her husband present, but she refuses, so Frank has to walk away…
Two days later, as a RESCUE SWIMMER on the SCUBA team for the State Police, he pulls that woman’s dead body from the lake. An event that changes him forever. He blames himself. Worse, he comes face to face with the victims ten-year-old son.
Frank has always believed everything has to be done by the book, so when he goes breaking rules to make sure the victim’s murderer is brought to justice, its a huge character change for him. That said, if faced with the same dilemma, he’d still follow protocol, only he might push a little harder.
Our Heroine, Lacy, has a different character change because she too, blames the cop who walked away from her sister the night the police were called. Imagine what happens when she finds out the man she’s about to marry, who is helping find her sister’s killer, is the man she blames for her death?
I’m going to be doing a series inside the world: the SARICH BROTHERS series. The first story will be set in Jupiter, Florida on Jupiter Island. The title: The Lighthouse, comes from the Jupiter Lighthouse where a pivotal scene in the story takes place.
Our Hero, Logan Sarich, ex-military and now part of The Omega Team, returns to his hometown on an assignment to protect his high school sweetheart, Mia Vanderlin and her twin brother Markus, who are ethical hackers. During their last job for DANA Corp, a defense contractor, the hackers were hacked by an unknown source who is now threatening to kill the twins.
For me, the interesting thing about Mia and Logan is that they always knew their relationship would end the day they both went off to college. They weren’t in love and both had dreams. Logan wanted to be in the Major Leagues and Mia wanted her own cyber security business. So when they see each other, they are thrown a curve ball by the instant attraction and desire to pick up things right where they left off. I love reunion stories, but usually they are filed with anger, conflict, and unresolved issues. This is the first one where there is none of that…only they have a different set of issues…
