The media is fascinated by Sean and Sara’s story, and it seems the secret is out that they solve murders on the sly. The fact that they retired their badges doesn’t seem to bother the mayor when his daughter goes missing. He seems to think Sean and Sara will get answers faster than the local police, but this is going to take some finesse if they don’t want to step on the toes of their friends in the Albany PD, including their former sergeant.

Book Overview for Politics is Murder

“An entertaining and fast read, making you want to read more.”
–My Train of Thoughts

There’s no time for a vote…

Sean and Sara’s popularity as a murder-solving duo has gained momentum since they retired from the Albany PD. But it’s not until a local television interview in which they meet Reanne Mable that they end up finding themselves involved with a truly high-profile investigation.

Reanne is the sister-in-law of Albany’s Mayor Davenport, and his daughter, Halie, has gone missing from her university campus. With his desire to keep the matter out of the media spotlight, Davenport turns to Sean and Sara to find her. But with the police already investigating the matter, taking this case would pit them against their friends from the police department, including their former sergeant Jimmy Voigt.

As time goes on, though, the fate of the girl is not up for debate, and the McKinleys set out to discover what really happened. With the mayor taking the heat for a recently passed zoning bylaw, maybe an enraged small-business owner is behind Halie’s disappearance. Or did she simply grow tired of living in her father’s limelight and run away?

To get the answers, Sean and Sara will need to use all the resources at their disposal and may have to call upon their good friend Jimmy for help.
