Penance: Introducing Detective John Lynchby Dan Oshea
Synopses & Reviews
Born and raised in Chicago, Detective John Lynch might just be about to die there too.
Because one dark secret might be about to tear a whole city apart.
A pious old woman steps out of the Sacred Heart confessional and is shot dead by a sniper with what at first appears to be a miraculous and impossible shot.
Colonel Tech Weaver dispatches a team from Langley to put the shooter—and anyone else who gets in the way—in a body bag before a half-century of national secrets are revealed.
Detective John Lynch, the son of a murdered Chicago cop, finds himself cast into an underworld of political corruption and guilty secrets, as he tries to uncover the truth about what’s really going on – before another innocent citizen gets killed.
About the Author
Dan O’Shea is a Chicago-area writer. His first two thrillers, Penance and Mammon, will be published by Exhibit A. Drawing on Chicago’s settings and history, the novels explore the city’s history of corruption, but with a national, even international flavour.
Dan is also the author of Old School, a collection of short fiction published by Snubnose Press.
Dan would be a handsome gent if he could just stop breaking his nose.
