When a con man dies, no one cares…except his killer.
Apartment manager Wilson McKenna’s day tanks when the cops accuse an old friend of killing a ruthless Honolulu scammer. McKenna hates to break the “no more amateur sleuthing” promise he made to his new girlfriend, but his buddy is desperate. He’s got no alibi. Made threats against the dead man. And, his gun was the murder weapon. Talk about a guy with big trouble.
McKenna turns to his private-investigator tenant, Chance Logan, for help. Too late, McKenna discovers Chance isn’t really a PI. Now, McKenna’s stuck with an investigation he doesn’t want, is mentoring a PI-wannabe, and hiding it all from his girlfriend.
A string of shattered lives—and suspects—lie in the dead man’s wake. Can McKenna and Chance find a cagey killer who’s always one step ahead? Or, will a dead con man ruin another life?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
While reading an article in AARP, I was intrigued by the concept of veteran's benefit scams. I contacted the author of the article and learned a great deal about the various types of scams perpetrated on, and by, veterans. I was particularly upset by the willingness of con men to not only steal from those who had fought for their country, but to take away everything they had worked for during their lives.
