Sam McRae Mystery #1:


Identity Crisis

A simple domestic abuse case turns deadly when attorney Stephanie Ann “Sam” McRae’s client disappears and her ex-boyfriend, the alleged abuser, is found shot to death. When a friend asks Sam to find the client, Melanie Hayes, the Maryland attorney is drawn into a complex case of murder and identity theft that has her running from the Mob, breaking into a strip club and forming a shaky alliance with an offbeat private investigator to discover the truth, protect her client, and stay alive.

With her career and life on the line, Sam’s search takes her from the blue-collar Baltimore suburbs to the mansions of Gibson Island. Along the way, she learns that false identities can hide dark secrets, and those secrets can destroy lives.

– Simon Wood, author of TERMINATED
