Author D.C. Scott continues to stay one step ahead of readers in his twisty debut novel, PRECISION: A Crime of Passion, the first installment of a planned series. Incorporating romance and the author’s love of sports, this engaging story puts a refreshing spin on the genre by straying beyond the confines of the traditional murder mystery.
PRECISION follows the life of Jay Magruder, a retired detective who finds himself fighting boredom now that he’s no longer fighting crime. After obtaining permission to revisit cold cases, he notices that someone else labeled one file unsolved despite its official closure as a murder-suicide years before. Magruder recognizes the case and begins to investigate, eventually coming into contact with a young man who seems to know every detail of the crime that happened before he was born.
Told in alternating perspectives, the question of the narrator’s identity is a second mystery embedded within the main plot. Upon discovering the truth of the astonishing ending, readers will view the major events in an entirely new light, transforming PRECISION into a puzzle that must be shifted again as each revelation occurs.
Reviews describe PRECISION as “a reflection of the author’s heart” that’s perfect for “readers who love mystery, adventure, and romance, as the love story is quite touching.” With a unique design that revolves around rotating points of view and an unorthodox romance, this opener to the Magruder series will appeal to a broad adult audience with a wide variety of tastes.
PRECISION: A Crime of Passion is available for purchase on Amazon.com or wherever books are sold. Sequels are currently in development.
