Jack Harvey novels
The death of a TV reporter from a single bullet wound to the heart - a dramatic news story, an unsolved crime... but the twist in the tale is that this time it's the man who fired the bullet whose asking all the questions.
Michael Weston wants to know how come the police were on his tail so quickly. What was it about this journalist that got someone so rattled enough to want her permanently out of the picture? Might she just have been a stooge, the job a set-up arranged to see him safely behind bars? His first task is to find the writer of his pay cheque, the second is to make sure he doesn't get caught. Because one thing's for certain - the longer he sticks around to find out, the bigger the risk of making mistakes, revealing his cover and maybe even losing his life.
