Description

Private detective Ronan Marino returns with an all new mystery. When college pitching phenom Ty Wallace is accused of murdering his prospective agent's secretary, the ballplayer's father enlists Ronan Marino to clear his son and uncover the real killer. Working the hardscrabble streets of Lowell (best known for Jack Kerouac and Mickey Ward of "The Fighter" fame) and the upscale Boston Back Bay neighborhood, Ronan uncovers a series of clues leading him right into a web of blackmail, gambling and sex; a conspiracy seemingly directed by his boyhood idol, a former Red Sox player and his partner in crime, a renegade gangster aiming to wrestle control of the Boston family from Ronan's uncle. Meanwhile, Ronan struggles with problems of his own including a teetering relationship with his doctor girlfriend, who is not appreciative of the risks he takes in his chosen profession and his family ties. Complicating matters is his attraction to the new chief of police at the university, who Ronan sees as not only his female mirror image but a potentially perfect crime fighting and romantic match. With his mobster cousin Tony and Lowell Police detective Eddie Garcia providing backup, "the best that money can't buy" once again finds himself caught between the light and darkness; desperate to solve the murder and figure out why his personal life continues to be such a mess.

About Lloyd L Corricelli

Lloyd L. Corricelli is a native of Tewksbury, MA. He is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts - Lowell with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and has a Masters of Arts in International Relations from American Military University. He served eight years on active duty in the United States Air Force with the Security Police and as a Special Agent with the Office of Special Investigations. His assignments took him across the world to South Korea, Okinawa and Europe. After leaving the Air Force, he worked in the film and television industry in Orlando, FL where his acting credits included the sci-fi television series "seaQuest 2032" and the Jodie Foster film "Contact." It was during this time that Lloyd began to write screenplays. One of his very first, a vampire story called "Dark Millennium" was optioned by the film production company that produced the series "Swamp Thing" and "Superboy." Though never produced, it provided him a great deal of experience in writing and a greater understanding of story structure. He also won the best screenplay award at the 2000 Kissimmee Film Festival for another work. Switching to novels in 2002, Lloyd's first book was the Ronan Marino mystery entitled "Two Redheads & A Dead Blonde." His other books in the Ronan Marino Mystery Series include "Chasing Curves" and "The Vicious Cycle." He also has an original novel called "Three Chords & The Truth" which he says is about the paths we choose to take and how it affects the lives of those around us. He hopes to release this book sometime in the near future. He enjoys working out, mountain biking, martial arts, collecting Japanese toys and is a fervent fan of the Boston Bruins, Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots. He currently resides in Southern New Hampshire and is the proud father of son Cameron, who is currently serving in the U.S. Air Force, and daughter Celine.show more
