By Reason of Insanity by MGM Meddis
“It kept me guessing right to the end…”
by MGM Meddis
Everybody knew that Mark Sterling was too smart to be a detective. Tough enough, certainly, but politics and the fraternal sensibility that made the LAPD a hotbed of corrupt political gamesmanship had made him weary and cynical. He had seen it all, solving the unsolvable, which kept him on the payroll despite his attitude.
But he had never met a suspect quite like the beautiful Lara Devereaux, who just might be even smarter. With her husband dead in the bed of their high-rise marina condo, Mrs. Devereaux begins a deadly game of Machiavellian wits, not only eluding Sterling’s best efforts to nail her for the crime he knew she committed, but finding himself in the crosshairs of the investigation itself. The win will go to the one most wiling to bend the rules, but only if the detective can survive the black widow’s seductive plan to take him down.
MGM Meddis delivers a mystery with all the classic tropes, but with the fresh voice of a detective cut from thicker cloth, and a villainess who would have Hollywood's most seductive beauties lining up to audition for the part.
By Reason of Insanity is MGM Meddis’s first novel. This work is the culmination of a decade of preparation, research and a rich learning curve studying and emulating the mastery and thriller genre.
MGM Meddis is diligently working on the next mystery/thriller.
