When Justice Needs a Hand
When a young lawyer for the number one environmental law firm in Seattle is found dead on Mount Rainier, the police declare it a tragic accident. A desperate mother turns to Raja Williams, a private investigator always willing to help.
The discovery of a sinister scorched-earth plot to hide the truth leads Raja and Vinny to the Arctic wilds of Canada and lands them in the middle of a battle over the riches of the pristine wilderness. If assassins don't kill them, the sub-zero weather just might.
This is the third intriguing thriller in the Raja Williams series. Neither the dark, tragic anti-hero nor the James Bond super-hero type, Raja is a wealthy Oxford-educated PI of mixed Caribbean descent who possesses a strong empathic power and a sixth sense for evil that gives him headaches and steers him straight into trouble. His partner Vinny Moore is a gorgeous hipster geek who prefers hacking computers to haute couture.
Swimming Upstream is a fast-paced crime thriller that grabs the reader right out of the gate and never lets go. The colorful cast of characters and timely topics make it an entertaining read which works as a stand-alone novel or part of the series.
