Daughters of God
Winner of the 2018 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards in the Philosophy Category
A New York State Governor has his eye on the White House... Young women from a high-class escort service are murdered... Will a popular New York crime reporter, and a retired detective from Detroit, find the killers before it's too late? This explosive story of politics and murder brings together retired Detective Tony Pinella — and Max Gold, a New York crime reporter and columnist. Pinella gained fame in Jerry Marcus' second novel, "The Salvation Peddler," as the Detroit cop who unlocked the truth about the murder of Veronica Blake, wife of Evangelist Jason Blake. Gold is best known for exposing political corruption. Pinella and Gold embark on a dangerous and complex journey into the darker side of political life.
- What terrifying secrets lie behind Governor Morris Green's Political comeback?
- What do his wife and eldest daughter really know?
- What are their connections to murders in New York City, Chicago, and Paradise Valley, Arizona?
- Why does Pinella seek answers from Stacey Johnson Blake, imprisoned in the psychiatric ward of a Michigan hospital — a conviction she blames on Pinella?
"DAUGHTERS OF GOD" is more than a tantalizing mystery, political drama, and psychological thriller. Marcus challenges us to think about important philosophical questions, the choices we face each day, and the implications of our actions. The winner of the 2018 New Mexico-Arizona Books Awards in the Philosophy Category.
