Hollow Ground : Safety is a gift that should never be taken for granted…
Clarendon Hills, Illinois is a peaceful and affluent town filled with wealthy citizens who pay top dollar for their privacy and safety—until a family is brutally murdered in their own home and forcing the once tranquil town into a state of upheaval. A mother and her son are dead, the suspects are lost to the wind, and a police force that’s grown accustomed to dealing with parking tickets and moving violations knows it needs an edge in order to solve the case, and that edge has a name that many have come to know well—Detective Edgar Vincent.
Vincent, once again working alongside his loyal and tactful partner, Detective Lindsay Brandt, work together to solve the crime and finger the person(s) responsible. However, the case is not quite what it seems—par for the course for Detective Vincent—as he and Brandt dig deeper and deeper and stumble across a scheme involving dirty money, a suspect with a sinister motive, and a web of lies that has been crafted to conceal the truth.
With a backdrop stretching from Clarendon Hills, to Miami, and finally to the infamous town of Hollow Green, Vincent and Brandt must put their heads together to unravel the mystery behind the murders, working feverishly against the clock and travelling further down a road that will find them both standing on a perilous patch of Hollow Ground.
“I just don’t understand why Dad couldn’t come,” he continued. “The game was so epic!”
“He had to work, Eric. He tried to get out of it. Believe me. Dad’s just had to work extra hard lately. You knowhe wanted to be there at the game. He needs to close this deal, and then he’ll be home a lot more. I promise.”
Monica was sure that her son knew his father was supportive. He came to nearly every game that Eric had played in the past. But tonight’s game was different because as his mother stated before, he had truly played his heart out and her husband had missed it.
It is what it is. Monica thought.
And she knewhis father would be proud when he saw the video.
Monica could still sense her son’s disappointment and decided to employ a surefire tactic. “How does a pint of ice cream sound, kiddo?”
Eric lit up like Christmas had come a few months early. “You picked some up from the store?” he said, perching forward in his seat and tossing his phone to the side when he heard the mention of sweets.
Monica nodded. “Mhmm,” she said. “Got that rocky road flavor that you like.”
Eric shot his fists up in the air. “Heck, yes!” he hollered. “Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!”
