HOUSE OF SECRETS by Tim Cockey as Richard Hawke - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Richard Hawke.
Senator Andrew Foster has it all: charm to spare, a loving wife, a beautiful daughter, and a fast-track career that will surely land him one day in the White House. And with the sudden resignation of the vice president, that track may have gotten a lot faster.
But thereís a problem.
There are people who know that Andy Fosterís charm can get the better of him, and they have bugged the Shelter Island bungalow where he is enjoying a midnight tryst with a beautiful campaign adviser. But all hell breaks loose when a man carrying an iron pipe comes crashing through the bedroomís sliding glass door. Within seconds, the young woman lies bloodied, dead on the sheets, and Foster has fled in panic.
And itís all on tape.
As momentum builds for Fosterís likely selection as the next vice president, the senatorís only hope of keeping his involvement with the murdered woman secret is to locate his blackmailers. But even they donít have their hands on the devastating images. The man they used for the job has turned the tables and is blackmailing them.
All the while, Fosterís personal life is collapsing. His wife, Christine, senses that something is terribly wrong. Unhappy about their daughterís living in a political fishbowl, Christine is also worried that she and her husband have drifted away from each other. Little does she know that power-hungry politicians and brutal gangsters are ready to rip her family utterly apart.
From the rarefied halls of Washington to the briny boardwalks of Brighton Beach, Richard Hawke pulls back the curtain to reveal what is taking place inside the hearts andminds of the powerful people we read about every day in the news. With House of Secrets, Hawke has delivered a pulse-pounding thriller that ignites the fatal mixture of politics, arrogance, and lust.
