What happens when Charlie Mack and her small team of private investigators are asked to stop a terrorist plot against the largest automobile show in the world?
There is the unraveling of a complex set of motives, the identification of the primary players, the murder of a team member, the clock ticking toward the cancellation of the show, and a final cat-and-mouse chase to find, and disarm, dozens of lethal bombs.
My first mystery novel is Trouble in Birmingham and follows female sleuth, Charlie Mack and her team from Detroit to Birmingham, Alabama in search of a missing person. It seems a fairly straightforward case until they run into a double murder, an FBI undercover operation and a black, southern patriarch with secrets dating back forty years. When Charlie is cold-cocked on a neighborhood street corner in north Birmingham, the case becomes personal and lethal.
