)-- Author Lance J. LoRusso announces that Hunting of Men, the first book in his Blue Mystery book series featuring detective Johnny Till has been included in the Authors Adopt Heroes program established by author, Penny Reid. In this program, authors of various genres are connected with medical professionals who are interested in the genre the author writes in and the author sends the medical professionals copies of their book. LoRusso was selected as an author for the mystery genre and donated copies of Hunting of Men to medical professionals who expressed interest in mystery books. The program was designed to honor the medical professionals in the frontline battling the coronavirus.
"The men and women who are treating coronavirus are true heroes and heroines putting their lives on the line daily,” said Lance J. LoRusso. “I salute them. I hope that Hunting of Men brings some enjoyment and escape from what they are dealing with when they receive the copies I contributed."
“I am honored to have been included in Authors Adopt Heroes Program,” continued LoRusso. “I believe it is an excellent way for authors to support the heroes and heroines in this pandemic war.”
In Hunting of Men, LoRusso draws upon his diverse law enforcement background that saw him work the street, serve as a trainer, hostage negotiator, and an investigator. The book launches the career of central character, Johnny Till who will be the key character in all the Blue Mystery books. The book’s title, Hunting of Men, is drawn from Ernest Hemingway’s quote, “There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.” The mystery in Hunting of Men focuses upon a cold case murder.
Johnny Till is a force to be reckoned with as a new homicide detective for the Lawler County Police Department. As tradition demands, on his first day on the job, Till pulls a cold case file to investigate. The file in question is one that has haunted the department and community for years: the cold-blooded murder of Officer Michael Dunlap, gunned down in the black of night some twenty years earlier.
Now, in order to solve the murder and heal the victims left behind, Till must reopen old wounds and retrace the final days of Dunlap’s life. The journey will lead him down a rabbit hole to a darker, more sinister conspiracy, one that threatens to steal the lives of children around the world. In order to close this cold case, Till must not only come into his new role as a homicide detective, but face his own fears to truly become a hunter of men.
Parallax, written to provide engaging as well as accurate entertainment, is a series of fictional stories based on the harsh realities faced by law enforcement officers in the performance of their duties and stories recounted to LoRusso by officers over the years. Peacemaking was LoRusso’s first entry into the world of fiction, follows the journey of a police officer, Scotty Painter, in the aftermath of a shooting.
