New Fiction Release Follows Police Lieutenant As He Solves Crime, Finds Love – Book by R.L. Roach

Lieutenant Al Santorini is fresh from great success; he’s captured a dangerous criminal, and though he mourns the loss of his best friend at the hands of the maniac, he’s relieved that the murderer has been brought to justice.   He’s in line for a big commendation and his career is going well when he falls victim to a sniper’s rifle.  He’s injured, but most of all he’s eager to find the shooter that nearly killed him.  In his search, he’s taken on wild chase across two continents to find a former IRA member with a grudge against Santorini.

As he searches for the shooter, Santorini becomes romantically involved with Joyce Gilmore, a local merchant who joins Santorini as his adventure takes him across the sea.  As their love grows, Santorini gets closer and closer to discovering the identitity of his assassin.  John Murphy, a professor of Irish history and gaelic as well as a former IRA member with a grudge against the lieutenant, finds himself on the run as Santorini gains on him.  Will Santorini reach Murphy in time?  Or will Murphy’s hatred be the end of Santorini’s life?

Irish Lit, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a rip-roaring adventure with a likeable hero in Al Santorini.  The readers will find themselves rooting for the successful resolution of the mystery, and wishing for more of Lieutenant Santorini’s adventures.  Author R. L. Roach retired from a career in court reporting that spanned over thirty years.  He retired a decade ago and moved to scenic Oregon to hone his writing and practice his golf and fly-fishing.  This is his second novel.
