In A Lowly Place
Reed Ferguson Mysteries, Book 21
For the first time in his career, Denver private investigator Reed Ferguson is reluctant to take a case.
Michelle Mowery, scheduler at Mowery Transportation, a family-owned-and-run trucking company, wants Reed to find what is haunting her brother, Dennis, who’d been fired from the company for drug abuse. At first, Dennis is reluctant to accept Reed’s help, but when Dennis admits to Reed that he’d been skimming the company books, and that someone knew about the skimming and had blackmailed him, Reed is intrigued and decides to take the case. The only problem is the blackmail occurred over a year ago, and everyone Reed interviews seems to be a suspect, from Dennis’s family members to his former co-workers, and even his old friend. Each clue reveals one sinister motive after another, and someone is desperate not to be discovered.
To make matters worse, a personal crisis for Reed looms at home.
