Newly hired at the San Francisco Chronicle, stringer Michael Fletcher is looking to secure the future of his wife and daughter by landing the next big story.
But Michael’s marriage is tested when sparks fly with Dr. Laurie Scott, who he meets while investigating three professional athletes who died in separate “accidents” over a six-month period.
The pressure mounts with the arrival of an encrypted message about the deaths of the athletes that is eerily reminiscent of the work of the Zodiac Killer, who terrorized the Bay Area in the late 1960s.
Alone in his pursuit of the source of the cryptic message, Michael must track a potential killer while keeping his marriage intact as his path continues to intersect with that of the beautiful Dr. Scott.
Michael must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice to find answers.
Fans of Elmore Leonard’s fast-paced crime dramas won’t skip a page while solving the mystery of The Stringer.
