Too Many Murders (Carmine Delmonico #2)

by Colleen McCullough

1967. The world teeters on the brink of nuclear holocaust as the Cold War persists.

On a beautiful spring day in Holloman, Connecticut, twelve murders have taken place in one day, and chief of detectives Captain Carmine Delmonico is drawn into a gruesome web of secrets and lies.

All the murders are different and seem unconnected. Are they dealing with one killer, or many? And as if twelve murders were not enough, Carmine soon finds himself pitted against the mysterious Ulysses, a spy giving local armanents company Cornucopias secrets to the Russians.

As the overtaxed police force contends with small-town politics, academic rivalry and corporate greed, the death toll mounts, and Carmine and his team discover that the answers are not what they seem – but then, are they ever?
