Ordinary Angels Pittsburgh Debut by John Micek

Sean Flynn Mystery Book 1

Veteran newspaper reporter Sean Flynn never imagined that a routine story about a fatal car crash would expose a dark secret about the highest reaches of Pennsylvania state government. 

But when an anonymous tip and a thick sheaf of documents reveal that elected leaders are prone to put their own interests above those of the public, it’s up to Flynn to use all the skills of his profession to shake the truth loose.

With the help of a grizzled Harrisburg cop named Marty Herman and the mysterious beauty Lena Bergstrom, Flynn follows the story from the streets of Pennsylvania’s capital city, to the leafy Philadelphia suburbs and, finally, to the humid shores of Florida, where all is revealed in an explosion of shattered secrets and a hail of gunfire. Neither the corridors of power, nor Sean Flynn, will ever be the same again. 

Ordinary Angels is the first episode in the continuing adventures of Sean Flynn. A second novel, Death is Bipartisan, is on the way. Look for it soon.
