A Murder on Long Island by Owen Parr

indie ebook cover

Mancuso, in his admitted Sherlock Holmes style, likes to look beyond the obvious. To observe things others looked at, but did not see.
Former NYPD Detective, Giuseppe “Joey” Mancuso, and his half-brother, Father Dominic O’Brian have ten days before the end of the trial, to find the real murderer. Real Estate developer, Harold Longworth, is facing life in prison for the murder of his wife in the Sagaponack, Long Island, New York, home. Just hired by the defense attorneys, Joey realizes that for a whole year before the trial, the attorneys have bundled the investigation. Was it on purpose? Are the attorneys covering something up?

The day of the murder, a year ago, Suffolk PD homicide detectives, found Mr. Longworth, alone in the home, sitting by his wife’s body after he called 9-1-1. Her blood was on his clothes. His bloody prints were on the murder weapon. Gunshot residue, on his arms and hands.
The prosecution is on the last days of their presentation. They have proven opportunity on the part of Longworth. As for motivation, they are about to show that Mrs. Longworth, the victim, was asking for a divorce, and settlement on a $75 Million estate. Further, they uncovered that Mr. Harold Longworth, suspected his wife of having an affair.

Joey, having been nicknamed; The Last Advocate of the Victims, by the local New York press, due to their last case, in which they solved three murders in one week, was hired reluctantly, by the defense in the last days of the trial. Margery, the 19-year-old daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Longworth, insisted that Joey and brother Dominic get involved in the case.

As Mancuso and Father O’Brian begin working the case, from their center of operations; Captain O’Brian’s Pub and Cigar Bar, corner of Beaver and Hanover Streets, in the Financial District of Manhattan, they find that there could be a lot more to this murder. The Longworth Foundation, a $100 Million non-profit-organization, is under FBI probe and IRS audit, for potential tax-schemes, money laundering, and colluding with foreign governments. Mancuso, in his admitted Sherlock Holmes style, likes to look beyond the obvious. To observe things others looked at, but, did not see.

Can Mancuso and O’Brian save Mr. Longworth from a life-sentence? Will they be able to unravel a possible fraudulent tax scheme being concocted by the Foundation executives? Or, is it simply a case of the husband did it, out of jealously?

Join Joey and Father Dominic, as they work feverishly in the last days of the trial, in their latest crime mystery. A whodunit page turner, with sides of humor and romance.
