New Thriller by Mel Figoni Features Private Investigator Who Battles Evil Plot; Released by Dog Ear Publishing

Santa Rosa, CA, March 08, 2011 --( As this thriller begins, two German immigrants are discussing Hitler’s plan to take over the United States from the inside – by establishing and continuing his Third Reich in California. Although the fuehrer is dead, his dream will live on. One group would bring U.S. residents around to the Fascist way of thinking. The other group would sow seeds of discontent by spreading physical and psychological terror. Things begin to go awry, however, when a small boy opens a duffel bag with deadly results.

Flash forward more than 50 years to San Francisco. Tony DiGiusto is about to retire as a California peace officer but has decided to take on private clients. The suspicious death of his uncle and learning he worked for the U.S. intelligence community is just the start of a spiral of events that draw Tony in. Solution from a Dead Man features a power-hungry man, determined villains and nonstop excitement. Will Tony survive to resolve his case or will would-be Nazis have the final laugh?

Author Mel Figoni retired after 29 years as a senior special investigator for the State of California. He is a self-employed consultant and licensed private investigator, which gives him insights into the sometimes baffling criminal mentality. He is working on a second Tony DiGiusto novel in the home he shares with his wife in California’s wine country.
