Psychologically, I'd peg protagonist Samantha "Sam" Lacour as obsessive-compulsive, perhaps high-functioning Asperger' s with undertones of "idiot savant" with extraordinary mathematical ability. She is a solitary, yet spends a lot of time "first-dating." An accountant, she works for a sizeable corporation on Virginia's Atlantic Coast. Sam possesses an invaluable trait for a forensic accountant [or for a homicide detective]: she is like a single-minded bloodhound when she focuses on a trail. Tasked by her superior to track discrepancies, she finds links to a missing colleague and to the scandalous CEO of another well-known corporation. Hot on the trail, minor crime like breaking and entering and industrial espionage are small matter.


Sam LaCour hasn’t given up on men, even if they’ve given up on her, and she doesn’t give up on her colleagues either, even when a dead body turns up, and she faints in front of the cameras, her family, and a television audience.

Author Bio:

authorRobert aspired to be a writer before he realized how difficult the writing process was. Fortunately, he'd already fallen in love with the craft, otherwise Sam and Casey might never have seen print. Originally from West Virginia, he has lived in Virginia, Massachusetts, New Mexico, and now resides in California. To find out more about Sam or Casey, visit the author’s website:

When he’s not writing, Robert can be found reviewing, blogging, or smiling. Falling Immortality and Graceful Immortality helped him discover his true love: hard-boiled mysteries. This is his third novel.
