J.H. McCarthy: Detective for the Innocent - Cover Reveal

Coming this spring from MuseItUp Publishing: Detective for the Innocent, the debut novel of mystery writer Joseph McCarthy. The cover, another fine work by cover artist Nika Dixon, is ready, and Joseph wants to show it off. I can't blame him. It's great!

Here's the blurb:
A former New York detective and a loving father is gunned down and shot by a gang called the Speed Killers. While in the emergency room, the detective asks his son Jeff to bring down who ever shot him and bring him to justice. At the young age of eight Jeff promises his father he would. Twenty three years later Jeff is now a detective, following in his father’s footsteps, and now is ready to avenge the unsolved murder of his father and bring the killer to justice. Time is ticking for detective Jeff. While he is trying to solve the twenty three year old cold case of his father’s death, he finds himself suddenly trying to save the love of his life, a detective named Kerry. He needs to protect Kerry at all costs from the Speed Killers. Little does Jeff know that Kerry is one of several victims to be kidnapped by a gang. Jeff’s brother David’s house has been destroyed and it appears as if there is another gang involved. David’s addiction has put his family in harm’s way. Without the ability to pay the gang back, his wife and son are being held hostage. The time is now for Jeff to step up to the plate to save the people he loves.
