NEW YORK, April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgan James Publishing's (www.Morgan-James.com) new release, Defying Death in Hagerstown by John Paul Carinci, captures readers' attention as they find the killer of a 90-year-old unsolved triple murder case.
Told from the perspective of Louis Gerhani, a heavy drinking, disillusioned newspaper reporter of the Washington Gazette, Defying Death in Hagerstown keeps readers hooked until the final page. In danger of losing his job due to his lately lackluster performance, Gerhani's boss sends him to write one more story that will determine if he can continue working for the Gazette. Reluctantly, Gerhani goes to a nursing home in Hagerstown, Maryland to interview Lolita Croome, a 110-year-old philosophical woman and the oldest living person in the country. But what he finds is nothing short of stunning.
After discovering the unsolved murder of three young women in 1923, that Lolita knew, Gerhani becomes determined to solve the case. Using her diary, Gerhani begins to unravel the clues, only to discover that someone wants to keep them hidden. Readers follow along holding their breath as Gerhani avoids multiple death threats and gets closer to cracking the case.
Defying Death in Hagerstown contains more than just a nail-biting plot; Carinci creates characters who jump off the page. A little rough around the edges, Gerhani captures readers' hearts as they follow his journey. He's a likable and relatable protagonist. As he hears Lolita's wisdom, pursues the girl of his dreams, and learns to work with an ornery police sergeant, Gerhani transforms into a man consumed, while still retaining his sarcastic charm.
"Defying Death in Hagerstown is a compelling and authentic exposition of the classic murder mystery. It has everything—shocking crime, compelling characters and a clever, clever plot. Get ready to stay up all night!" Brien Jones, author.
