Strangled in Sacramento

#3 in the Captial City Murders Series

Nick O’Flannigan is a freelance photographer on a very specific assignment: photograph all of the state capitol buildings for A book being created by Travel USA magazine in a single year.

However, curious circumstances and a theft drop him right back in the middle of a mystery, and this time it is personal. With the help of a new friend, he’s determined to complete his assignment and get his property back. Will doing both also solve another crime? Or will Nick once again find himself in danger?

- Allan Leverone, Bestselling author of the Trace Tanner Series, Review of Stray Ally



WONDERFUL! I enjoyed every word in this book. Troy has a fantastic sense of where and when detail is needed and where to let the readers mind fill in the blanks. The story was chilling and not one I would recommend for night time. I loved the way Typewriter’s ending was left. what a wonder for the brain.
