What do murder, embezzlement, a mythical fortune in gold, the Kennedy
assassination and the Nazi invasion of Poland all have in common?
Adrian LeBlanc specializes in corporate crime. After he is muscled into
accepting a divorce case by a stunning brunette who is comfortable not
telling the truth, LeBlanc narrowly escapes drowning only to learn that
he has been set up as the prime suspect in the brutal rape, torture and
murder of his recent client. If this were not enough, he is conned into
helping a dying woman discover what happened to her husband and his employer,
Count Stanislas Petrowkski, on November 21, 1963, the day before John
F. Kennedy was assassinated.
As LeBlanc pursues answers, he must unravel a series of convoluted embezzlement
schemes while avoiding the homicidal intentions of people who do not want
their current or past sins exposed. Against his will, LeBlanc must delve
into the murky past of two Polish patriots who may have been Cold War
heroes or rank con artists. Everyone LeBlanc encounters puts a self-serving
spin on events that shook and finally ended the Kennedy Administration,
including a septuagenarian attorney, an ex-FBI agent who worked for brutal
dictators and an ancient CIA analyst who is afraid to die. With the help
of a neer do well PI, a retired librarian, an exasperated assistant
DA, and a dying, determined woman, LeBlanc devises plans that may work
to ensnare the villains, prove his innocence, and bring closure to a 30
year old mystery.
