The Investigation


Author: Dorothy Uhnak
A New York Times bestseller from the author of Policewoman and Law and Order: A story of a housewife with a secret—and a cop with an obsession.

In a peaceful, residential section of Queens, all hell is about to break loose. Kitty Keeler’s children have gone missing. Both she and her estranged husband say they have no idea where they are. Then the bodies are found—the youngest was strangled to death and the other was shot in the back of the head. A media frenzy ensues . . .
 
While there’s plenty of evidence against Kitty, NYPD sergeant Joe Peters believes she’s innocent and vows to uncover the truth. Soon, he finds himself falling in love with her, a love that quickly becomes an obsession. And it’s feelings like those that could get a man into trouble.
 
From a former New York City cop and Edgar Award–winning author of bestselling crime novels that have been translated into fifteen languages, this is an “excellent [and] thoroughly satisfying” thriller set in gritty 1970s New York City (The New Yorker).
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy Uhnak including rare images from the author’s estate.
