Fatal Innocence by David Berardelli

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In the course of an investigation, Private Detective Adam Brooks encounters an incredibly beautiful woman whose mysterious past points to serious intrigue.

Richard Warden, CEO and owner of WarCo, Inc., the Orlando-based software empire, meets a beautiful green-eyed young redhead in one of his favorite bars and is immediately taken by her beauty and sophistication. While he actively pursues her, tragedy strikes repeatedly in his personal life, and his empire crumbles.

Richard has no idea why all these terrible things are happening to him. His only clue is the beautiful mystery-woman who coincidentally entered his life at the same time his troubles started. Has she been hired by one of his enemies or one of his competitors, specifically to ruin him?

Adam suspects another reason – maybe she’s a long-suffering victim from Richard’s checkered past, who has vowed revenge and is determined to destroy him. But whoever she is, and whatever she’s up to, it’s a race to find out the truth before the CEO of WarCo goes down in flames. Or ... maybe that’s the best thing that could happen to him.
