The Brick Kavanagh Series: Book 2
Publication Date: October 18, 2022
This was not the homecoming Brick envisioned.
After the trauma of his last case, and after three months spent recovering in Ireland, life is looking up for newly retired homicide detective Brian (Brick) Kavanagh. Back home in Washington, D.C., a new job shows promise when he’s asked to train criminology students in cold case techniques.
Then he’s off to a whirlwind weekend in Chicago with Nora, an Aer Lingus flight attendant he’d met in Ireland. There he receives shocking news that his former partner’s wife and twin infants have been kidnapped. Brick rushes to D.C. to support Ron, the man who’s always had his back—but as days pass, Brick questions how well he really knows this man.
Brick’s cold case—the unsolved hit-and-run death of a college student—is heating up. Brick finds gaping holes in the original investigation. Is it possible diplomatic immunity granted someone a “get-out-of-jail-free card”?
Meanwhile, Ron’s family tragedy unfolds in a most bizarre manner, and the escalating cold case points to D.C. corruption at the highest level. Things are getting complicated . . . very complicated . . . and dangerous.
Reinvigorated from a three-month stay in Ireland, retired police detective Brian “Brick” Kavanagh is mapping out the next chapter of his life. While leading a group of college students through a cold case investigation might not be his first choice, he quickly realizes this case is full of unanswered questions.
Author Shawn Wilson delivers the second in the series with Duplicity. Perfect as a standalone, this installment serves up the perfect blend of drama and intrigue associated with a high-quality police procedural.
While Kavanagh explores the hit-and-run cold case that might have political implications, he learns that his former partner’s wife and twin babies are missing. What ensues is a frantic race to find answers.
Packed with vivid details, the storyline captures the angst involved in a missing person’s case, along with the intensity of the ensuing investigation. Set against a backdrop of Washington, D.C., Kavanagh’s latest adventure takes some unexpected twists and turns.
Duplicity adds a thrilling new chapter in crime fiction with a determined main character unafraid to take risks. I look forward to seeing what else is in store for Brick Kavanagh.
Shawn Wilson is a produced playwright and author of Relentless, the first novel in the Brick Kavanagh Mystery series. She earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Administration of Justice from American University in Washington, D.C. and spent over thirty years working for the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. Having traveled on five continents, she is very happy to call Chicago home.
