Too Close to Miss

Mara Cunningham knew that sleeping with a married man was a bad idea. But when her lover shows up in the hospital after his wife and son are murdered, the rumors about her turn dangerous. Now she’s the prime suspect in a double homicide, and the real killers will stop at nothing to silence her. Mara’s race against time takes her from the dense heart of Boston to the dark woods of New Hampshire, from gritty streets to the halls of power. Before she’s through, she’ll learn just which of her friends she can trust – and she’ll stare death in the face.


TOO CLOSE TO MISS is John Perich’s debut novel. It’s available on Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble’s Nook, and iTunes.

- David Moglov, The Mogolog
