About this product
- DescriptionIn Seneca Point, Brandon Webster, a former CIA covert agent, and secret paramilitary operative for the Pentagon, uses the skills and techniques of his profession to solve the murder of his older brother, Big Mike, the powerful Supervisor of the Western New York Town of Lakeside. Big Mike is found inside his locked SUV in the parking lot of the Lakeside Hotel, shot to death by his own gun, taken from his bedroom. There are witnesses and physical evidence. Police rule out suicide and immediately suspect his widow, Sarah, because the two were fighting over the rumors that he was having an affair with a mysterious and attractive younger woman, and she does t have an alibi for the time of the murder. She asks Brandon for help. Webster, as a successful professional spy, is a master of deception and disguises and a very good liar. Unlike his garrulous and popular brother, Brandon has shunned attention, operating with quiet intensity in foreign countries, often in disguise, either alone, or with just a small group of close associates, and is affectionately described by Barbara Truscott, the woman with whom he w lives in Georgetown, as a mysterious, and seductively dangerous, lone wolf. Brandon is perfectly qualified to unravel the mysteries of Lakeside, a town rife with lies and deception, and populated by many people in disguise. The theme of deception echoes throughout the vel. In his investigation Webster exposes and destroys a conspiracy of murder, kidnapping, fraud and bribery that threatens his hometown and reaches into his family. This is a revision of the book published in 2011 with a completely new beginning and with a number of mir revisions and corrections.
