The Third Coincidence

Thriller Political

What happens when a country is in chaos? No longer able to believe in its leaders, judges, and defenders? When two Supreme Court Justices are murdered as well as one Governor of the Federal Reserve Court, everyone assumes the killers will be caught and brought to justice. Later on, it becomes apparent the FBI is struggling with the case. In a last attempt to pacify the people, President Samuel Schroeder requests that Jack McCall leads the investigation. The FBI does not concede defeat easily and places Rachel Johnstone as their stand-in and partner to Jack. The two of them have a fair amount of water under the bridge from their past together and this latest task will be a strain for both of them... especially with the killers still out there and striking repeatedly.

The characters in THE THIRD COINCIDENCE are fun to read about. Jack is the type one might find in a murder mystery. The reader will be able to tell that he is tenacious and very determined. Rachel is more of the professional, more willing to stick to the rules than get out of hand even if it would mean solving the case.

The events within THE THIRD COINCIDENCE hold an air of mystery and suspense. The reader does not know what will occur next. There are plenty of surprises and twists in this book. Will Jack and Rachel solve the case? Or will they let personal problems come between their success? The ride the reader takes though out this story is fast paced and exciting. A Story you can not put down in every way imagined. A great read for the person who only picks up a book every once and awhile or for the person who devours everything they can get their hands on.

Learn more about The Third Coincidence


Headlines scream across the nation as a country in near panic pleads for the capture of the killers. With little progress, U.S. President Samuel Schroeder asks Jack McCall, a veteran of the CIA and Defense Intelligence, to head up a special multi-agency task force to find the killers. A frustrated and unhappy FBI designates, as its representative, Rachel Johnstone, an agent with whom Jack has had some personal history.

The Third Coincidence unfolds amidst continued assassinations, accusations that the president is attempting to form his own secret police, and confirmation hearings for reluctant nominees to fill the vacant positions while the Supreme Court struggles to sustain a quorum. Will a terrorist group or a mad assassin succeed in destroying these revered intuitions? In the spirit of The Day of the Jackal and The Manchurian Candidate, this story is juxta-posed through the eyes of both the hunter and the hunted as the devious plot to change America hurdles forward.
