Failure Drill




John Phault is a former DEA Special Agent working as a private investigator in Detroit. He’s had plenty of excitement in his life, but now he’s older, wiser, and married. Investigating fraudulent insurance claims and following cheating husbands provides all the thrills he needs.
Phault takes a missing person case as a favor to a friend. As soon as he starts looking, Phault’s sedate life disintegrates. Every time he turns around someone else is trying to kill him, and the more he looks for 20-year-old Jerry Phillips, the more questions he has about why this honor student would arm himself to the teeth and then just disappear.

This is book one in the Failure Drill series. Book Two is Splashback, Three is Splits and Transitions
