A YOUNG GIRL IS DEAD, MURDERED AND TOSSED LIKE SO MUCH RUBBISH INTO A DUMPSTER IN A GRIMY BACK ALLEY.
When a thirteen-year-old girl is found murdered in an alley behind an adult video store, small-town Sheriff Ed Dojcsak expects it to be an open and shut case. After all, in a town of less than ten thousand off-season residents how many child killers could there possibly be?
But while the possibilities are limited, the list of reasonable suspects is not. Children are natural-born victims, the canvas upon which big people are capable and only too willing to project their anger, frustration, humiliation, and fear. And the town of Broadmoor Falls has a bleak history of humiliation, murder, and fear. And while long-time residents may hope to forget a past from which no good future has ever come, they are fated to repeat it. Like the irreversible flow of the Hudson River passing downstream and inexorably over the Broadmoor Falls dam. But to alter the future, Ed Dojcsak must revisit and confront a dark past to which he, himself, feels only remotely connected. To protect the lives of the innocent, is Dojcsak willing to risk destroying the lives of the many, including his own?
A REASONABLE SUSPECT is a psychological tour de force, a chilling and sometimes uncomfortable suspense thriller inspired by true crimes.
