A wealthy CEO of a Cincinnati fashion company is found dead in his car along a remote stretch of highway in eastern Kentucky. Seasoned Detective Jebediah Colton from Kentucky must team up with smart but inexperienced Detective Claire Maxey from Ohio, to solve this high profile case that takes them away from their normal duties and sends them to Virginia, New York, Boston and Toronto. As the investigation unfolds, detectives Colton and Maxey enter into the uncompromising world of fashion retail, private equity and global manufacturing. Through twists and turns, they uncover a profusion of secrets, and unmistakable corruption and infidelity.
The story moves quickly and paints a realistic picture of the many temptations of conducting trade with China. It also casts a light on the negative consequences of private equity firms taking control of struggling businesses. The more Jebediah and Claire learn of Gunther Dunkel’s ambiguous persona, the more suspects they uncover who have motive for murder. DEADLY DISRUPTION (JEBEDIAH COLTON BOOK 2) is now available!
