Clabe Polkabout this book: The Detective Mike Eiser Series is about real world crime affecting small town communities. Detective Mike Eiser is a solid, intelligent, realistic small town Sheriff's Detective with a solid personal life that permeates the series. Together, with his girlfriend, Investigator Donna Miley, his partner, Detective Malcolm "Mini" Moore and helped by his friends and neighbors in the community, Mike uses solid police investigation and forensics to combat urban criminal influences spilling over from nearby metropolitan areas. Although Mike's life story flows from book to book, each primary story in the series stands alone. Readers have the satisfaction of a complete story.
Angelica is about a woman with a past. Angelica (now Angela) has done everything from dance on poles and tables to marry a Mafia enforcer in order to survive. After her husband's death, she ran back to her roots in Georgia to start a new life. Eleven years later, she and her son, a star high-school baseball player bound for a college scholarship, have a successful new life and many friends.
But her new life is about to come crashing down.
Antonio Scarpone, her husband's former crime boss, has been indicted and is facing trial on federal racketeering charges. Besides a pending trial he cannot win, Scarpone is facing advancing dementia and loss of face as crime boss. He recalls a secret he and Angelica once shared; and he becomes obsessed with killing Angela before his trial begins.
Astounded when mob assassin after mob assassin comes to Poplar Bluffs targeting Angela, Detective Mike Eiser is determined they will not kill her in his town. Angela is equally determined she will neither die nor bow to Scarpone. And, she has an unexpected ally; the first hitman Scarpone assigned to kill her is now on her side.
But Scarpone, driven by dementia and paranoia, is determined that Angela must die and he is willing to sacrifice his whole criminal organization to do it. The result is warfare; blood in the streets of sleepy little Poplar Bluffs.
Even with help from Detective Mike Eiser, the Sheriff's Office and all her friends, can Angela, and her son, survive Scarpone's obsession?
