TRANQUILITY DENIED by A.C. Frieden
A Jonathan Brooks Mystery
Publication date: September 02, 2013
Synopsis … Hotshot maritime lawyer Jonathan Brooks may finally be in over his head. He can’t find evidence that his client’s ship was rammed by a U.S. Navy vessel — evidence he needs to win his trial and help his client escape bankruptcy. But after Jonathan’s courtroom tactics expose a Navy captain lying under oath, the case takes a series of shocking turns, dredging up haunting memories of Jonathan’s deceased brother.
He soon realizes that the trial masks a vastly more sinister plot veiled by the shadowy past of the Cold War. To uncover it, he’s forced to risk everything — and everyone — he holds dear. Lives and corporate empires hang in the balance as he embarks on a hunt for the truth, which will lead him through the sultry alleys of New Orleans to remote Scandinavian villages, and deep into Moscow’s dark corridors of power.
