What's the book about? 

In this new fictional novel, Fading Fog, the city of Bayfront is crippled with fear and anger by a methodical killer who is unfazed by boundaries.

The Bayfront Police Department works tirelessly to capture the killer, but tension and internal politics mount as the new chief of police attempts to take control of the investigation. An embittered captain creates hostility and confusion between the investigation and patrol divisions, causing detectives to overlook links between unsolved cases. Will the Bayfront Police Department find the killer before someone else is murdered?
