The Final Act of Conrad North - Peter Marabell
It had been two years since Conrad North got away with murder. Two years. The cops didn’t put him away for Camille North, the prosecutors didn’t make the case, but Michael Russo still thinks he’s responsible for a killer being on the loose.
The case is cold, the leads are dry, the cops care more about watching football and the chief suspect has disappeared.
Conrad North is hiding something, and he’s scared Russo has found him out.
"Conrad North is a murderer,” the caller said. “People are dead because of him."
Then one day, like a ghost from the past, a phone call; “This is Patricia Geary,” the caller said to Russo. “Conrad North killed Annie, too. I want you to get him for it.”
“Conrad’s a smart man,” AJ reminds him. “He beat all of you last time. This is personal for you. What if Conrad beats you this time, too?”
Second chances don’t come easily or often. Russo understands the risks because it’s his chance to clear his conscience and put a murderer behind bars.
