Fred Carver Mystery Series, Book 10
by John Lutz
Borrow Borrow Borrow

 After an explosion causes his lover to miscarry, Fred Carver hunts for the man who planted the bomb

Fred Carver's lover, Beth, is not a woman who wants to be tied down. When she learns that she is pregnant with the detective's child, she resists his attempts to marry her and initially wants to have an abortion. Finally, love wins out, and they decide to raise the child together. Stopping by the abortion clinic to cancel her appointment, Beth is caught in an explosion that spares her life but takes her unborn child.

The police are content to lock up a local anti-abortion fanatic whose house is full of explosives, but Fred Carver isn't convinced. When he and Beth start receiving death threats, he takes the matter into his own hands—seeking revenge against the man who took his child and nearly murdered the woman he loves.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of John Lutz including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
