Termination Notice

By A.D. Phillips

Crime & mystery, Thriller | eBook


A serial strangler. A detective with a conflict of interest. Solving this case could be murder. When a reclusive musician is strangled with a computer cable, the most promising clue is a contract termination notice from Taurus Studios: a game design company headed by Adrian Pryce, a successful entrepreneur who is the police's number one suspect. The lead investigator is Lucy Duvall, a career-driven detective whose frosty personality makes her difficult to work with. Her Philadelphia PD colleagues are as shocked as anyone when she shows a more compassionate side, but for Lucy this case is personal. Years ago when they were at college, Adrian saved Lucy's life and they became lovers, but their relationship ended sourly when she found out he'd been sleeping with another woman. After a second victim is discovered, all the evidence points to Adrian. Suspended for misconduct, Lucy begins to doubt his innocence. As more employees are terminated by the 'Taurus Strangler' - and Lucy narrowly survives an attempt on her own life - she must decide whether to trust the man who betrayed her. Is Adrian the victim of an elaborate frame-up? Or a scheming, cold-blooded killer?
