My good friend W. S. Gager has a new book out in the Mitch Malone Mystery series. A Case of Accidental Intersection seems to have jumped right out of the headlines. This story has some similar characteristics to the plot.
From the back cover: Mitch Malone hates hospitals, but when a suspicious traffic accident lands a comatose victim in the hospital, he must put that aside to find the truth. The surface looks smooth but the more the crime beat reporter looks the more bodies pop up, including a private detective and his own editor. Can he get to the truth before the surviving victim is murdered in her hospital bed and an elderly witness has a heart attack? Will he get his exclusive printed before he's the next victim?
Hope you get a chance to read it!
