The Final Act of Conrad North
by Peter Marabell
The 5th book in the Michael Russo series
“Conrad North is a murderer,” the caller said. “People are dead because of him.”
It had been two years since Conrad North got away with murder. Two years. The cops didn’t put him away for Camille North, the prosecutors didn’t make the case, but Michael Russo still thinks he’s responsible for a killer being on the loose.
Then one day, like a ghost from the past, a phone call; “This is Patricia Geary,” the caller said to Russo. “Conrad North killed Annie, too. I want you to get him for it.”
Suddenly, the two years vanished. Russo takes the case and accepts the daunting task of helping to bring a killer to justice. He chases the elusive Conrad North from Petoskey to Harbor Springs, Gaylord and the streets of Traverse City.
“Conrad’s a smart man,” AJ reminds him. “He beat all of you last time. This is personal for you. What if Conrad beats you this time, too?”
Second chances don’t come easily or often. Russo understands the risks because it’s his chance to clear his conscience and put a murderer behind bars.
