Let me give you a bit of the unvarnished truth about myself. I publish my work under the pseudonym John Lawe.
After reaching adulthood, in the chronological sense, I completed my college education, served in the Army and then chose a career in law enforcement. As an FBI agent, I investigated a wide variety of crimes; theft, fraud, fugitives, extortion and kidnapping, to name a few. After my federal employment, I worked as an investigator for an agency that regulated the ethical conduct of Oregon public officials. My investigative experiences have also included being a licensed private investigator and a volunteer detective on a cold case squad.
THE GEOCACHE MURDERS
A seasoned detective with the Sheriff’s Office dusts off a cold case and turns to former FBI agent Matt Kinler for help. Matt can’t refuse his longtime friend, who had recently suffered a stroke. In this procedural crime drama, the author sets his favorite private eye on the trail of a serial killer, a killer who wants recognition.
Powerful and corrupt politicians create havoc for Matt Kinler, the former FBI agent turned private eye. A wealthy matriarch of an Oregon timber family hires him to find who killed her son and why. Matt jumps at the chance, but runs smack into a wall of complications. Not everyone wants the truth revealed.
Matt Kinler’s world is turned upside down in one telephone call. When the former FBI agent answers the call, he learns an informant from his FBI days — Jesse Lopez — is in trouble. There are only two men who would want to hunt down Jesse and kill him: a drug cartel member and his twin brother. But the pair is locked up for what their prosecutor described as a “virtual life sentence.”
