(From the publisher):
The chief of security for New England's professional basketball team, The Highlanders, is found dead in his office with a suicide note and conflicting evidence of foul play. Refusing to believe that he would have reason to kill himself, and frustrated with the slowness of the police force's progress on the case, Johnny's widow, Roseanne, and her friend Randy, launch a renegade investigation of their own. Aided by Roseanne's brother, Graham, a fiercely protective loose cannon, they dig up evidence that Johnny, just previous to the date of his death, was running his own investigation into the drug overdose of a star player for the Highlanders.
The amature detectives find themselves mixted up with a ruthless gang of mobsters, many of whom are responsible for the drug trade - and a string of violent murders-from Washington, D.C. to Boston. When their quest takes a gruesome and deadly turn, the three wonder if they're not in over their heads. A gritty tale in the vein of Dennis Lehane and Robert B. Parker, "Splattered Blood" keeps the readers guessing, with suspense and retribution on every page.
