Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A couple’s dogged pursuit of a killer leads them to a deadly head-to head with a powerful organization
David “Grocer” Jones made newspaper headlines for exposing a food pricing racket and testifying before a state senate committee. When he dies in a mysterious car crash, clearing his name becomes a family affair. His sister, Gabriella, and her husband, Loneman, are convinced that David didn’t commit suicide, as the police report alleged. Loneman and David had worked together at Ploughman, the state’s biggest co-op, and Loneman knows that his brother-in-law was an utterly honest man. Who would kill him for doing the right thing? When Gabriella goes missing, it’s up to Loneman to find her and solve the mystery. Not trusting the police, he’ll have to navigate the government’s back rooms, where poisonous secrets lie behind every door.
