Coins Of Death

A traffic stop turns deadly. The only clue left by the killers is a Nazi coin. While Detective Kate Alexander’s partner, Frank Duffy is sucked in to the emotional trauma of his wife’s battle with breast cancer, Kate must take the lead. Her investigation navigates through a murky field of dirty cops, a gold heist, lost treasure and interagency rivalries. Hang on, as you are propelled through fast-paced action mystery with a shocking ending.

While my wife was recovering from breast cancer, I opened a manuscript I had
started and never finished. I was surprised at what I found as I read, Coins of Death. My goal with Frank Duffy’s character development was to demonstrate that cops, like everyday folks, must deal with assorted personal issues. I had no idea that I would walk in the shoes of my character.  No one will ever believe that I wrote Frank’s journals prior to my wife’s illness, but I did. Hopefully, I brought some empathy to the character of a calloused cop.

    Mike, you made me cry! 🙂
    It’s been a long time since I got sucked into the emotion of a story. I wanted to take Frank Duffy home with me. What an excellent story! I usually find whodunnits to be pretty predictable, but not yours! I hope the story continues; you definitely have a fan!

      Hi Andrea,

      Your wonderful comments put a smile on my face. Like you, I enjoy great characters in a story, and I strived to develop characters that readers would enjoy and want to be a partner with on the journey.

      Cheers, Mike
