( THE MURDER OF JESUS CORTEZ )
Private Eye Jackson ” Doc ” Holiday investigates fraud, a crime he knows intimately. He was once a respected and successful mortgage banker who laundered more than 100 million dollars in dirty money.
Although never convicted, he has been blackballed from banking. After his drinking buddy, a Catholic priest named Jesus Cortez, is shot dead in the driveway of Doc’s Berkeley home, he sets out to find his killer.
The case takes him in search of an old confederate in Portland, where he begins to suspect that the murder of Jesus is connected to a money laundering scheme suspiciously like Doc’s own.
As Doc delves in further, he crosses swords with a scheming matriarch, a bent cop, a femme fatale, and a master criminal. Whoever’s at the bottom of this business has already killed and his facing ” The Bitch ” or life in prison. And they’re not afraid to kill again.
