Perfect Pawn - SIGNED
SYNOPSIS - Patricia Ann Browning didn’t see the deer, standing in the middle of the road, until it was too late; not that it would have mattered. For retired NYPD detective, James Maguire, the pieces of his life were finally starting to fall into place. He was running his own lucrative security firm, catering to the rich and famous, and had just met Melody Anderson, herself a highly successful CEO from Long Island's posh enclave of Southampton. Everything, it seemed, was looking up for him, until the morning newscast reported that his former high school flame had gone missing from a one car accident in rural upstate New York. Upon arriving back in his old hometown Maguire must come to terms with not only his past, but the fact that no one seems interested in pursuing the investigation into Patricia Browning's disappearance, including the woman’s abusive husband who is the newly elected sheriff. As Maguire struggles to piece the clues together in time, he is drawn deeper into a game where people are as expendable as pawns on a chess board and where the only goal is to take down the king; a crown Maguire unwittingly wears.
