The File on Thomas Marks - Book coverAfter two young women are murdered in their homes, investigating detectives question the leading suspect.  Young, well-educated Thomas Marks admits he was with both just before they were killed.  Although he doesn't remember when he left each woman's residence, he claims to be innocent.  Unfortunately, none of the evidence corroborates his story.  Eventually, another suspect surfaces, and Thomas thinks he's in the clear, but appearances can't always be trusted.  Thomas wonders if the suspect will be arrested.  Or will the detectives come for him. 

Filled with twists and turns, "The File on Thomas Marks" will keep readers guessing until the very end.


Author's Notes

"The File on Thomas Marks" was written over several years. Since it is the first full-length mystery I've written, I found the process slow--that is, until I started asking "What if . . . ?" questions. I asked these about a character's statements to other characters as well as about a character's actions in a particular situation. I asked these questions up to the end.
