They Tell Me You Are Brutal

Lies convict, but the truth condemns.

When five people die from tainted pain medication, Governor Duncan Cochrane must lead the investigation. Meanwhile, his son’s drunken confession leaks to a journalist with an agenda. Can he protect his home city without sacrificing his family or his office?

“David Hagerty’s novel is the third in a trilogy of crime fiction for the thinking person. Each setting is painted in rich detail to create a vivid scene. Each scene is crucial to telling the story. Characters often have back stories leaving the reader to ponder the complexities of their personae, the most complex persona being that of Duncan Cochrane, his tragic protagonist. Yes, this is a page turner, but there is much to be gleaned from each page.” ~ Robert D. Knable
