Shadow Hill by Thomas Kies
"Complex characters and brisk plotting make this a winner. Readers will look forward to Geneva's further adventures."
"Sleek and engaging. If you miss Kinsey Millhone, you might give Geneva a whirl."
Just days before an oil executive is scheduled to give a pseudo\-scientific report to Congress, aiming to delay crucial action on climate change for decades, he and his wife are found shot to death in their Greenwich, Connecticut home. It's ruled a murder\-suicide, but their son refuses to accept this conclusion and hires Geneva Chase, ex\-journalist\-turned\-detective, to prove otherwise. With the report still due to Congress, the lead scientist of the study gone missing, climate activists turning violent, and members of the executives family seeking revenge, Geneva races to find answers, stay alive, and stop the report from reaching Washington.
Author of the Geneva Chase Mystery Series, Thomas Kies lives and writes on a barrier island on the coast of North Carolina with his wife, Cindy, and Annie, their shih-tzu. He has had a long career working for newspapers and magazines, primarily in New England and New York, and is currently working on his next novel.
