1. Killing Time in Charleston– Nick Janzek is a Boston cop with a dark, tragic past. Dark because of his father’s ties with Whitey Bulger.
Tragic because of what happened to his wife.
But now he’s starting over in Charleston. No brutal winters. No bullying despot of a boss. No staring down
at stiffs on the mean streets of Beantown.
As he drives into Charleston behind the wheel of a U-Haul, taking in the sweet smells of Confederate Jasmine and gardenias, he gets a call. And before he can even unpack, he’s got a murder on his hands. A murder that could change the entire face of Charleston.

And what’s with all those college girls hanging out there?
As new partners Janzek and Rhett stumble along looking for a break, it becomes clear that some of Charleston’s most prominent citizens are up to their eyeballs in it all.

Then comes the payback: A brutal murder… then another… and another.
