UNTHINKABLE by Clyde Phillips
Life is finally flowing in the right direction for Lieutenant Jane Candiotti with a great husband and a baby on the way. It does help and hurt that the father of her child is a direct report to her, but Homicide Inspector Kenny Marks turned out to be the final piece of life’s puzzle she needed.
While trying to juggle being pregnant with homicide details Jane and Kenny get a call to a horrific scene of execution style mass murder that turns out to be a personal nightmare. Kenny’s nephew was one of the unfortunate people that happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong killing hour. First impressions turn into second glances none of which adds up to any connection from one victim to the next. There have been other robberies but nothing that would connect petty thievery to this horrific scene and the anger that seemed to be displayed.
Working through the emotions is only a small part of the push toward resolution. Every victim has a family that deserves answers including Kenny this time so working harder is not a question it is a fact. Jane has some assistance from a source she never expected assist her in finding clues answers start to come but the shock of figuring out who the killer was is something no one can recover from.
