Rising Sun Descending

A downsized print journalist has to prove he’s still got it when the long-ago murder of his uncle may be tied to a much bigger bombshell . . .

Unceremoniously dumped from his newsroom job at a Harrisburg, Pennsylvania paper—and from his romantic relationship with a fellow reporter—journeyman journalist and Iraq vet Revere Polk finds himself investigating the decades-old murder of his grand great-uncle, Jacob Wissler Addison, a cold case that is suddenly coming to a full boil.

What did Uncle Jake’s top secret, but ill-fated, mission to Tokyo in August of 1945 have to do with a modern-day plot to assassinate the president of the United States? And was the atom bombing of Japan really necessary? The solution to this mystery could be a headline-maker, and if anyone knows how to get the story, it’s a veteran newshound like Rev . . .
