Where Evil Lurks
by Robert D. Rodman
ISBN: 978-0-917990-79-3

Brutally raped and left pregnant and half dead, Ashley Bloodworth wants to find the three men who tortured her. She persuades P. I. Dagny Taggart Jamison to take the case after promising that she merely wants to know who fathered her twins. Dagny must find each man and get a DNA sample. But there is a catch: the assault took place ten years ago.

No trail was ever this cold. For clues Dagny has a blue Dodge van, a belt buckle, and a parting taunt: You ve been done by every Tom, Dick, and Harry.

Dagny stubbornly parleys the clues into leads and the leads into finds that take her from a senile old woman s home in New Jersey, to an underground cistern in Istanbul, to an organ transplant clinic in Los Angeles.

Ashley pays Dagny as promised with a bonus and a terse Goodbye, Dagny.  But that s only the beginning, for Ashley is bent on lurid retribution.

Where Evil Lurks is also available as a trade paperback. You'll find ordering information on our In Print page. BOSON BOOKS also offers The Evil that Men Do by Robert Rodman.

About the Author

Robert Rodman was born in Boston, raised and educated in Los Angeles, and is living presently in Raleigh, North Carolina. While no stranger to writing – as a college professor he has written textbooks, monographs and scholarly essays – fiction writing is a relatively recent undertaking, and inspired in part by Paul Theroux’s observation that “Fiction gives us a second chance that life denies us.”

An admirer of Ayn Rand’s character Dagny Taggart of Atlas Shrugged, Rodman reincarnates her as the private investigator Dagny Taggart Jamison, whom he attempts to endow with the character strengths of the original Dagny. Rodman also creates the character of forensic pathologist Charles Cranston Clarke, a fictional descendant of the character Sir John Cranston, created by Paul Doherty in his Brother Athelstan mysteries. Dagny and Charles meet for the first time in The Evil That Men Do.
