Days before the Pearl Harbor attack plunges the U.S. into World War II, private eye Maggie Sullivan is hired to find a missing engineer in Dayton, Ohio. Has Gil Tremain been kidnapped, or has he turned traitor — to his employer and maybe his country?

As Maggie pieces together his last movements, she finds there are secrets the man’s ex-wife and his employers don’t want uncovered. Maggie herself is attacked and an innocent witness is murdered. The ruthlessness of her opponent — or opponents — becomes even clearer when there’s an attempt to abduct Tremain’s young daughter. Still more chilling, Maggie’s investigation suddenly attracts the attention of a local crime kingpin.

The attack on Pearl Harbor presses every cop in the city into service protecting manufacturing and research facilities. Stunned by the knowledge their nation will soon be at war, even fearful the mainland itself will be bombed, people cling to family and friends. Schedules and routines shatter. Amid the disruption, alone and aware she can’t count on help from the police, Maggie races to save a man who has now become a liability to his captors.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Am I the only one who ever wonders where authors come up with the ideas for their stories? Myers manages to come up with some real corkers. Along with the usual cast of familiar characters, in this one she introduces us to a new, interesting woman whom I hope will appear in future novels. If you like an old fashioned crime story, you’ll appreciate Maggie Sullivan.


Mrs Myers writing made me feel as if I was alive and experiencing life at a time before I was even born. This book ends with war declared & I am feeling sorrow that the fictional characters will be facing a war overseas – that’s how good she is – it feels as real as if I have been sitting in Finns with friends. I hope there will be more in the series.


Myers’ well researched and love of Dayton’s history sparks a visual tour of old streets and buildings via her capable pen. She can’t write these books fast enough for me. More, please!


It was interesting, the characters were well developed with good relationships, and there was always something new thrown in so it wouldn’t become trite or predictable. Well worth reading the entire series.


Ms Myers writing style is perfect for this terrific series. There is wonderful dialog, exciting twists on the mystery, time and place fit just right and add the interesting dimension to make this series exceptional.

About The Author

At age three author M. Ruth Myers blamed the misdeeds she was accused of on her invisible friend PapPap, who lived in a mayonnaise jar. Clearly Ruth herself was guilty only of running with a bad crowd.

Today she pleads guilty to being the Shamus Award winning author of the Maggie Sullivan mystery series as well as numerous other novels. You could say she’s a lifelong fibber who discovered her niche at an early age. Her books have been translated into seven languages, taught in a college course in Japan and optioned for film. Her romantic suspense novel A Touch of Magic was condensed in Good Housekeeping.

A native of Missouri, Ruth grew up in Wyoming. After earning a journalism degree from the University of Missouri, she wrote for daily papers in Michigan and Ohio. She has also worked in public relations, association management and as a ventriloquist. She’s happiest, however, when she’s killing people in the privacy of her study. Her husband and cat give her sideways glances and twitch from time to time.

When not involved in criminal acts, Ruth reads, plays the concertina (usually Irish tunes) and bakes.

PapPap is serving hard time as an editorial assistant.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – M. Ruth Myers and ENT appreciate it.
