The Other Murder



Mystery / Thriller

Date Published: 01-08-2024

Publisher: First Legacy Publishing


Sometimes, the most dangerous thing . . . is the truth.

For disgraced cable news producer Hannah Hawthorne, covering the shooting of a pretty NYU sophomore is a chance for redemption. When the story snowballs into a media circus, Hannah’s reporting fans the sensationalistic flames and earns her acclaim. The tragic murder, seemingly the result of random urban gun violence, prompts protests and vigils that further magnify the story.

Meanwhile, Paulo Richardson, a reporter for an online neighborhood newspaper, is following the other murder in Washington Square Park that same night – a Latino teen. He discovers an unexpected connection that is political dynamite. When Hannah and Paulo team up, they uncover disturbing facts, leading them to question everything they thought they knew and leading them to the man who may be the killer.

When the story is ready to explode, the truth may be hotter than anyone can handle. Breaking the next scoop could ruin Paulo’s paper and wreck Hannah’s career – and it could get them both killed.

Excerpt from "The Other Murder"

That’s when he saw a flash of purple and a dark shape on the ground. He walked toward it, shining the light all around the silent dirt, trampled by hundreds of New York feet. It was a girl. On the ground. Not moving. He knelt in the dust, not worrying about what evidence he might be trampling. Sticking the flashlight under an arm, he reached out and nudged her, in case she was just sleeping. She wasn’t. He rolled her onto her back. His eyes jumped to the dark hole in her forehead. She wasn’t going to need an ambulance.
