Unfairly disgraced former army officer Jake Cantrell has only one friend left: Bug, a wolf-dog he saved while serving in Afghanistan. Together, they try to put his bitter past behind him, and Jake settles for employment at the bottom rung of the campus security ladder of a small upstate New York college. But things only turn worse when the college’s richest and most powerful alumnus is found hanging from a campus footbridge on the eve of homecoming weekend. Jake is convinced the man was murdered, but with no credibility to his name, no one agrees―at least not until a second body is found hanging from the same bridge. But as a vicious hurricane sweeps up the Eastern seaboard, the clock is ticking and it’s only a matter of time before the killer strikes again. Trusting his instincts, Jake puts his own life in peril as he attempts to uncover the buried secrets at the heart of the murders in acclaimed author Robert J. Mrazek’s Dead Man’s Bridge, the first in a new heart-pounding mystery series sure to keep readers hooked until the very last page.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In this strong series launch, Mrazek makes a familiar setup fresh by combining tight plotting with a flawed but empathetic lead.” Publishers Weekly
“The real treat here is the unraveling of the two mysteries, which the author manages with an admirable, bare-bones narrative style…A very good detective story.” Booklist
“Mrazek’s gritty, vulnerable sleuth is a compelling protagonist whose first-person narration is punchy and lucid. An auspicious series debut.” Kirkus Reviews
“Mrazek kicks off a new series introducing a sleuth determined to find the truth in an action-packed tale that grows in intensity and complexity. A solid choice for fans of Glen Erik Hamilton’s Van Shaw thrillers featuring an ex-army ranger.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Fast-paced, character-driven…flawless.” ForeWord Reviews
“Intriguing plot. A hero to root for.” Robert Dugoni, author of My Sister’s Grave
