Head of Zeus
Should I Fall
Should I Fall by Scott Shepherd

A retired Scotland Yard Inspector races to prove the innocence of his daughter's fiance in this fast-paced and expertly crafted whodunnit from 'marvellous storyteller' (Michael Koryta) Scott Shepherd.

When NYPD Detective John Frankel's ex-wife is discovered murdered on the floor of his Manhattan studio apartment, he instantly becomes the prime suspect. Frankel's gun is linked to the fatal bullet, he had a motive, and he flees the city, all of which convinces his colleagues of his guilt.

In spite of the mounting evidence, Frankel's bride-to-be, Rachel Grant, and her father, Austin Grant, formerly a detective at Scotland Yard in London, are certain of Frankel's innocence. But with the police under orders to use whatever force necessary to stop a so-called dangerous criminal, the duo will have to act fast to save him.

The relentless chase after Frankel takes them across the country, from the tropical shores of Hawaii to a deadly rendezvous in northern Maine. And as the game of cat-and-mouse unfurls, so too does a complex murder plot with multiple victims...
