Editorial Reviews

Review

"It works as a whodunit, but it's Cochrane's story and political life that'll provide the fuel for this series." ~ Crime Thriller Hound ~~~~~~~~~~ "...outstanding and it is so well-written and well-plotted that it is hard to believe it is a debut novel." ~ Theresa O'Loughlin ~~~~~~~~~~ "This is one of those surprise-ending novels that are so tightly constructed that it's hard to write synopsis without giving away an important detail. Hagerty makes a contemporary political point, but gently enough that you can just enjoy the story if you are not interested in the politics. If you are interested in modern American politics, he may help you understand how people come to take sides on a current issue." ~ Scott D. Saifer ~~~~~~~~~~ "Though this story is set in the late 1970's, the moral and political questions that emerge from its telling are very contemporary, if not timeless. This book is the ultimate good read from the opening "joy ride" to the mind-bending conclusion. The main character, Duncan Cochrane, candidate for governor of Illinois, is the most interesting and complex of the David Hagerty's imaginary crew. It seems Cochrane's quest for power leads him through every moral dilemma one could encounter. Underlying the intrigue is the author's adroitness for describing each of the 1970's Chicago scenes in visceral detail. I refer to this in visual terms, or perhaps cinematically, in the way he paints carefully with his word-brush. More importantly, this ability to capture the essence of place translates into emotional impact throughout, adding layers of complexity to the story." - Robert D. Knable

About the Author

David Hagerty - AUTHOR: Stories about crimes have always resonated with me, whether it was "Crime and Punishment" or "The Quiet American." Maybe it's because I started my career as a police reporter, or because I worked for a time as a teacher in the county jail. More than a decade ago, when I decided to finally get serious about writing, I started with short stories based on real misdeeds I'd witnessed. I wrote one about my next door neighbor, who'd been murdered by a friend, another about an ambitious bike racer who decides to take out the competition, and a bunch of others based on characters I met in jail. Over time these got picked up by various magazines online and in print. More than a dozen now exist, with most of the latest in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine and Big Pulp. For my debut novel, "They Tell Me You Are Wicked," I drew inspiration from the most infamous event in the history of my hometown: the real life killing of a political candidate's daughter (though I made up all the details). Now I am at work on a second volume in the series, set two years later, after my hero, Duncan Cochrane, has become governor. He's haunted by the family secret that got him elected, and fighting a sniper who's targeting children in Chicago.
