Struggling for answers when two murders occur--the first on a crowded city bus, and the second a busy subway--inexplicably without witnesses, police lieutenant Marian Larch uncovers a deadly murder-for-hire ring

Blackwell North Amer
Who said life as a lieutenant in the New City Police Department was easy? Three weeks into her new promotion, Lieutenant Marian Larch faces one of the most puzzling cases of her career: how did someone commit a murder, with no witnesses, on a crowded crosstown bus?
Retired businessman Oliver Knowles got on the Thirty-fourth Street bus at Second Avenue. A few blocks later he was dead, shot in the chest, a copy of Newsweek temporarily hiding his wound from his fellow passengers. None of them spotted the assassin. Nor did the trained operative who was following Knowles for a private investigative agency.
These are high-profile cases that Marian must solve if she's to prove to the doubting men above and below her in the department that she deserves her new rank. And just to complicate matters, former lover Curt Holland reappears in Marian's life, both helping and hindering Marian's investigation.
From the opening page to the diabolical Barbara Paul twist at the end, Fare Play will delight readers with its authentic detail and wicked wit.
