Assassination at High Speed
The State of Michigan is awarded a huge federal contract to build a speed-rail line from Port Huron to New Buffalo. In celebration, the U.S. President, the Prime Minister of Canada, and the Michigan Governor board the train and set off on a Victory Ride…but one of these dignitaries is destined to die during the celebratory tour. This book features stops at several Michigan locations including Lapeer, Flint, Durand, East Lansing, Battle Creek, Kalamazoo, Dowagiac, Niles, and New Buffalo. Detective Lou Searing is called in to solve the crime and true to form, he does.
