Dangerous Friends cover for book page

Michelle Babcock expected free tutoring in college chemistry when she slept with James Ponder, a graduate student obsessed with global warming protests. Ponder duped her into helping with an environmental terrorist attack and murdered two people in the name of saving the planet. Now Michelle faces a lifetime in prison unless Private Investigator Chuck McCrary can find her a way out.

Chuck’s investigation uncovers a conspiracy involving arson, murder, and the Chicago mafia, along with the mastermind behind a string of mega-million-dollar stock market scams reaching back five years.

The mastermind intends to cut his losses by murdering anyone who can lead the cops back to him. That includes Michelle, Chuck, and a corrupt college professor, who becomes Chuck’s unwilling ally.

Quotes from Dangerous Friends:

I make it a policy never to argue with people who are pointing a gun at me. Especially nervous, twitchy, crazy people.
“If you don’t toot your own horn, there will be no music.”
“They sent only three shooters after me. It’s practically an insult.”
Howard chuckled. “I got a captain like that too. He’s tight as a pair of two-dollar shoes.”
Snoop Snopolski: “I’m not lazy; I crave efficiency of movement.”
