Otho Eskin: The Reflecting Pool

Detective Marko Zorn loves the beauty and luxury of life. He collects art, drives a Jag and wears upscale clothing. He has a finely tuned sense of aesthetic. In his words, “I like nice things.”

A woman’s body is found in the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. A member of the Secret Service and no one seems to know how or why she was killed.

As the homicide investigation begins, Zorn is blocked by government factions at every turn. An FBI agent arrives with helpful information, but that brings the pressure down harder.

It’s not the only stress Zorn’s under. There’s a reopening of a murder case in his Maine hometown, and now he’s caught between two murderous, warring factions of the gang run by Sister Grace.

The Reflecting Pool by Otho Eskin is a great debut police procedural for your consideration. I note the Kindle edition is US$1.99 at the time of this post. You can’t go wrong with this one.
