When crime reporter, Mitch Malone, comes upon the scene of a horrific traffic accident in which the driver has died and the passenger is in critical condition, he snaps a few photos and interviews a witness. The witness, an elderly woman, is rattled.
The case looks like careless driving: the driver, distracted by something, had pulled in front of a cement truck, yet something doesn't feel right. Mitch decides to poke around.
Turns out the owner of the car, Dominique Pewter, a recent college graduate, was ready to take over the reigns of the family business. The company executives weren't happy about her plan, but she'd inherited the company after her parents' death and what could they do?
As Mitch gets wildly different accounts of Dominique's life, his suspicions grow stronger that the accident was something more sinister than poor driving. Then the elderly eyewitness insists she'd seen another car force the accident. Worried about the safety of his witness and the surviving passenger, Mitch goes on high alert.
Additional deaths raise the stakes as Mitch tries to stop the killer before the killer stops him.
A Case of Accidental Intersection is a great whodunit. I loved Mitch's character. He's so certain he's a tough guy, yet he always does the tender thing. Plus the mystery and the way the author dealt out the clues was well done.
I liked the angle of solving crimes from a crime reporter's point of view. I will be reading this author again.
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?
