Now, in The Left Hand of God, he delivers the most powerful read of his career. It will take you from the upper echelons of high society to the twisted world of the psychopath, from the glamorous penthouses on Chicago’s north side to the subterranean tunnels and storm sewers underneath the streets of the city, as Chicago police Chief of Detectives Larry Cole faces his biggest challenge yet. Joining Larry Cole is Lieutenant Blackie Silvestri, the beautiful and smart investigative journalist Kate Ford, and Cole’s seventeen-year-old son, Butch, who is visiting his father for the summer. When Butch visits a nightclub on the north side, he stumbles across a plot to fix an Olympic basketball game between the U.S. and the Italian national team. Meanwhile, Cole has uncovered a plot to assassinate the sultry newscaster Orga Syriac when he escorts her to a political ball. The would-be assassin, a demented Catholic priest, is intent on stopping her from exposing a secret right-wing organization. With Kate Ford’s help, Cole must foil the would-be homicidal maniac, keep an eye on his teenage son, and prevent an international game-fixing scheme that could tarnish the Olympic sports world forever.
