With Deadly Negatives, Russell Hill has created another powerful and clever crime novel. Here's a book which starts innocently enough with a photographer named Michael McSwain discovering some black-and-white negatives hidden in a camera box. Wanting to find out about the photos leads him to people and places he didn't expect, not all of them friendly, and to long-unsolved crimes by prominent and powerful people. Suddenly those negatives become extremely dangerous to possess. From one harrowing incident to another, McSwain comes to regret that he ever bought the camera, certainly that he developed those negatives.
