John Bekker, the downtrodden hero of Sunset -- EgarAward Finalist for Best Novel -- returns to face his greatest challenge yet ... When Bekker's old friend and state prosecutor Carly Simms wakes up next to a murdered young man in a motel room after a night of drinking, she doesn't remember a thing, especially stabbing the young man in the heart. Although all the evidence points to her guilt, Simms hires Bekker to prove her innocence. Bekker soon finds himself ensnared in a deadly game of cat and mouse. The murder victim was raised in an orphanage in Utah, and Bekker makes the startling discovery that other young men from the same orphanage are being murdered around the country. To clear Carly Simms, Bekker must connect the dots and find whoever is responsible for the other killings. As he gathers evidence and closes in on a suspect, Bekker and his family become targets. The stakes are high, the race is on and there can be only one winner. SUNRISE is a fast-paced whodunit that will leave you breathless.
