Vancouver, WA, September 16, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Barking Rain Press, a non-profit publisher, announced the acquisition of the worldwide print and electronic publishing rights for the crime thriller "Bad Policy" from Amasa, Michigan, author James M. Jackson. Mr. Jackson is the author of “One Trick at a Time: How to Start Winning at Bridge,” as well as numerous short stories and essays.
When private financial investigator Seamus McCree returns to Cincinnati after a routine business trip, he discovers that his home has become a crime scene for a brutal murder. The victim in his basement is an acquaintance from a previous corporate investigation—and endured bullets to both of his ankles, knees and elbows before the final shot to his forehead put him out of his misery. No one has seen an “IRA six-pack” victim since the IRA troubles in Northern Ireland in the 1970s.
Now the primary “person of interest” in the murder, Seamus must use his talent for logic and hard work to prove his innocence. Soon he uncovers a trail that leads back to his Boston roots—and a poisonous family feud dating from the divorce of Boston’s Irish mafia and the Provisional IRA in the 1970s. Driven by the chilling realization that there was more behind the death of his policeman father than he ever knew, Seamus ignores warnings from the police, friends and enemies and continues to dig for the truth.
As the body count climbs, all trails seem to lead back to him, and Seamus is forced to go underground to find out who is framing him — and why — before he becomes the next victim.
“Bad Policy” has been assigned to Barking Rain Press staff editor Brenda Morris of St. Marys, Georgia. Publication for both the print and eBook formats of “Bad Policy” is anticipated for the first quarter of 2013. Interested readers can sign up to preview the first four chapters of “Bad Policy” for free by visiting the Barking Rain Press website at http://www.barkingrainpress.org.
