The Fred Carver Mysteries, Book 8

by John Lutz
When a client dies in an apparent suicide, Florida detective Frank Carver suspects murder
Donna Winship is an ordinary woman with a typical problem. No longer in love with her husband, she has taken to spending evenings and long afternoons with a new man. Fearful that her husband will learn the truth and be overwhelmed with jealousy, she contacts Fred Carver, an ex-cop turned PI, and asks him to tail her. Minutes after he agrees, Donna drives her car into a speeding tractor trailer. Dead on impact. The local police are happy to call it a suicide, but Carver is determined to serve his client, even in death. More bloodshed follows, as Donna’s husband kills himself and her lover disappears without a trace. No love triangle is simple, but this one could cost Fred Carver his life. This ebook features an illustrated biography of John Lutz including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
