WINNER OF 2019 PENCRAFT AWARD FOR LITERARY EXCELLENCE IN SUSPENSE
“An impressive, realistic dark thriller with an unnerving conclusion … Deep Background is entertaining and eye-opening reading.” — Lone Star Literary
Two years after a tip helps reporter Levi Cole break one of the biggest political scandals in history, the same anonymous conspirators expose him for fabricating stories. After resigning, Levi returns to his rural Texas hometown to win over Kat Hallaway – a married ex-lover and fellow reporter – by helping her cover a grisly murder. Levi’s reunion with Kat is cut short after they revisit their troubled past. Then she’s kidnapped. As he searches for Kat, Levi learns the truth about the murder, his connection to the killers, and how far he will go to regain control over his own life.
