About Wayne Zurl:
Wayne Zurl worked for twenty years as a police officer in New York before retiring to the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. For thirteen of those years, he served as a section commander supervising investigators.
Prior to his police career, Zurl served in the US Army during the Vietnam war and continued on in the Reserves. Before all that, he worked in the fledgling business of computers–when they were seven feet tall. Somewhat disenchanted with the IBM/data processing business, Zurl decided computers were nothing but a passing fad–something that would never replace humans, and he scrapped reentry into that world after returning from his stint with the Army overseas, and collected unemployment insurance until he was offered the only job somewhat compatible with his military background.
In 2006 he began writing police stories. His premier novel, A NEW PROSPECT, won Indie and Eric Hoffer Book Awards for best Mystery and Commercial Fiction respectively. Zurl has also been named as a finalist for a First Horizon Book Award and a Montaigne Medal.
He currently has nine novels and twenty-seven novelettes published in the Sam Jenkins mystery series. Many of the novelettes were produced as audiobooks.

Review by Nancy L. Silk:
In this latest novel by great author Wayne Zurl, who is a retired New York Police Officer, a man is lost in the eastern Smoky Mountains.
Was he kidnapped?
Did he run away from the one young woman in his life?
The story starts off as a simple missing person case, but it erupts into a world of industrial pollution, environmental activists, and profuse uncertainties.
Sam Jenkins and John Gallagher investigate this unusual case and learn there are many people withholding the truth. Will time run out to solve the case?
An awesome and captivating story. Highly recommend.
