Overview

Having investigated his share of gruesome killings, Philadelphia Homicide Sergeant Matt Payne is beginning to think nothing can shock him-until the case of a young socialite's death lands on his desk.

The Camilla Rose Morgan he'd known for years was beautiful and brilliant, juggling charity fund-raisers while working toward the MBA that would let her take her place in the family's multibillion-dollar company. How was it possible that she'd jumped from the balcony of her Rittenhouse Square penthouse?

Her brother tells Payne she'd tragically been battling a lifetime of mental demons, and there is plenty of evidence to support what he says, but still...something just doesn't sit right. The more Payne digs, the more complications he discovers, and when someone slips him copies of trust fund papers that Camilla Rose was fighting bitterly to have nullified just before her death, an even darker picture begins to emerge.

Payne is going to have to tread carefully here. Powerful forces are at work, reputations and lives are on the line. If he takes one step wrong, his own life may be among them.

After basic training, he received counter-intelligence training at Fort Holabird and was assigned to the Army of Occupation in Germany where he was ultimately assigned to the staff of then Major General I.D.

On his release from active duty, he was appointed Chief of the Publications Division of the Army Signal Aviation Test & Support Activity at the Army Aviation Center in Fort Rucker, AL. After successfully publishing three novels, he left his civilian employment with the Army and has since published more than 128 books, including both fiction and non-fiction.
