Act of Deceit launches a new series featuring ex-SFPD detective Harlan Donnally. It has been a decade since Donnally took a bullet on the job and retired. Content with flipping pancakes at a Mount Shasta cafť in Northern California, the ex-cop wants nothing more to do with crime investigations.
That all changes, though, when a dying friend asks Donnally to deliver a message to his long-lost sister. Unfortunately, the woman was murdered, her assailant never found.
Against his better instincts, the ex-cop does a little digging and is soon pulled into an investigation that involves a series of old murders linked to a 1970s-era Berkeley commune, church corruption and sex trafficking. Itís a nasty situation and one perhaps better left alone, but once a cop, always a cop. Even though he isnít wearing a badge anymore, Donnally wonít rest until he sees justice done.
Once you begin reading this thriller, you wonít get much rest either until you finish Act of Deceit.
