My mystery novel, The Dancing Boy has been released by Oak Tree Press. Find it at Amazon.com
Haunted by the loss of his children, his work in law enforcement and memories of Vietnam, all Treat Mikkelson wants is to lead an undisturbed life on his small Puget Sound island but the death of an elderly woman he’s never met draws him into a situation that exposes the raw underbelly of child exploitation.
Margaret Neilssen’s death appears accidental, a broken neck resulting from a late-night fall. Her friend, Cassie McLaren, however suspects it’s murder and beguiles Mikkelson into investigating. Reluctant to give up his isolation but attracted to Cassie, he agrees to talk to the local police and medical examiner and discovers Cassie is right.
But why was Margaret murdered? The answer leads Mikkelson to the discovery of a smuggling operation involving drugs, weapons and children, and especially to the latest victim of that smuggling--a missing, frightened, eleven-year-old boy.
Drawn deeper and deeper into the search for the missing boy and efforts to identify the source of the smuggling, Mikkelson battles his own personal demons and his fear of commitment to develop a plan to trap the smuggler--a trap that, except for the smuggled boy himself, nearly fails.
