Blood Rust - Death of the China Doll
By W. Hock Hochheim
Once an NYPD detective, Rusty was a rising rock star in the Organized Crimes Unit. Then, mob members and corrupt cops calling themselves the “Five Apes” lure Rusty to Grant’s Tomb and shoot him in the head. The detective in Rusty dies. The meat-puppet Rusty is all that remains, now a brain damaged, paranoid, criminal, like a psychopath he terrorizes the streets of Newark, N.J., selling drugs, robbing and even murdering. Years later, Alphonso & “The Crepe hanger,” one of the hit men who first lured Rusty to Grant’s Tomb, reveals to him that the once sensational China Doll murder case Rusty solved was really an elaborate con, a set-up executed by the Mob in an international drug smuggling conspiracy.
Soon the State where the China Doll body was dug up will execute a Steverino Downing, the innocent man convicted for the killing he didn’t commit. Alphonso reveals that the hit on Rusty was the Mob’s way of clearing up…loose ends. This news ignites something deep in Rusty’s exploded brain. He must find a way to free Downing. His obsession leads him to the Freedom Science Foundation, a group run by the internationally renowned lawyer Dr. Sad Prevell and her assistant Peter, a former S.A.S. South African commando. Both cut their teeth on such cases during African Apartheid. With their help, Rusty’s quest will take him from New York to the shipyards of South Africa and Shanghai.
Can Rusty nail the pieces of his shattered mind back together? Can he beat the Mafia, corrupt “Five Apes” cops, a Chinese Triad and even Somalia pirates in time to save Downing’s life, and still somehow redeem his own?About the author:
