Fort Worth, TX, September 24, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Well-known columnist of The Miser’s Handbook and a recipient of the bronze star, retired Lt. Colonel William Walker delivers his first full-length novel with The Unlikely Agent, introducing the most improbable of sleuths, Pam Wilson.
Happily married with a loving family, Pam Wilson has it all. But her idyllic world is shattered the morning she discovers her parents brutally murdered:
Pam stopped in mid-sentence. What she saw did not register in her conscious mind. Lying on his back on the living room floor was her father. A small black hole in his forehead, a halo of dried blood surrounding his head. Bill Anders’ eyes stared at the ceiling but saw nothing. She fell to her knees and grabbed his lifeless hand. A wave of fear engulfed her. What if they were still in the house…
Her search to find the killers and the truth behind her parents’ murders leads her on a harrowing journey back to the steamy jungles of Vietnam and into the seamy underside of society. But this amateur investigator soon finds herself being stalked. Can Pam Wilson discover the truth? Or will she become the killer—or killers—next victim? The Unlikely Agent is a rollicking who-done-it crime novel with a very charming, engaging, and most improbable heroine. Follow along as Pam seeks to discover who is behind her parents’ deaths—a journey that will take her to the highest levels of government.
The Unlikely Agent was directly influenced by several very real crimes, including the murders of Judge Vincent Sherry and his wife, Margaret, in Biloxi, Mississippi back in 1987. The Sherrys’ daughter, Lynne Sposito, never accepted the judgement that her parents were killed in a random crime. Instead, she doggedly pursued those responsible.
With The Unlikely Agent, William Walker has created an intense crime drama that rises above the genre with a complex yet familiar protagonist the average reader can truly identify with. Walker is a talent to be watched.
