About the Book

In March 1973, Norman Munz, a confessed killer, dies in prison from pneumonia. Twenty-two years earlier, he was arrested and sent to prison for the murder of Monroe police officer Gregory Figi. Over the years, his mother, Phyllis Munz, had petitioned the police and the governor to reopen the case. She was convinced that her son was innocent, and a grave injustice had occurred. Her determination and absolute belief in his innocence never wavered. Her son languishing in prison for a murder he didn’t commit broke her heart. After his burial, Mrs. Munz was beside herself with grief. She owed it to herself and Norman to make one last plea to clear his name and to give her peace. She contacted Det. Samantha Gates at the Monroe PD to beg her to reopen the cold case to find justice for her son. At first, after hearing her concerns, Gates was intrigued but skeptical. The heartfelt, visceral emotions of Mrs. Munz wanting justice for her son resonated with the detective. Gates decided to look into the case, but a cold case is difficult being that it would rely heavily on faded memories, not to mention deceased witnesses. Nevertheless, Gates, who had never undertaken a cold case in her professional career, felt up to the challenge and immersed herself in the past. What surprises would she find as she works her way through a maze of entanglements in the past? Was Norman Munz was wrongfully convicted of murder and sent to prison? Only by lifting the veil concealing the true facts of the case and exposing the truth could her question be answered.   Books by William Mitchell Ross in “Monroe Mystery Series” Deceived by Self All Passion Denied Love’s Obsession Echoes Screaming in the Night A Greedy Vengeance Murder for Malice Who Killed Fritz Zuber?
