The Counterfeit Drug Murders

My latest novel The Counterfeit Drug Murders has been awarded third place in the novel category by the Delaware Press Association in their 2021 Communications Contest. In The Counterfeit Drug Murders, a close friend of the two detectives, Margaret Hoffman and Paul O'Hare, dies from counterfeit prescription drugs. Further research indicates their friendsí deaths are part of a larger tragedy, including the demise of thousands from counterfeit and opioid drugs. The detectives vow to solve the cause of the deaths of their friends, and investigate illegalities in the drug industry. The author supports outlawing politicians accepting campaign contributions (bribes) from the drug industry.
