Special Agent Drew Cady has waved goodbye to Washington, D.C., and ten years of chasing violent felons in the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Criminal Investigative Division (CID).

He is on the mend, both physically and emotionally, as he helps run his fiancée's resort in northern Minnesota while working part-time on the FBI's Medicare Fraud Strike Force in Minneapolis. Chasing white collar criminals is a far cry from hunting serial killers and Cady basks in the glow of his newer, more laid-back lifestyle, that is, until a young woman's body possessing a most-disturbing characteristic is pulled from Lake Superior outside of Duluth. And if being ordered to investigate this case isn't bad enough, Cady's former boss-Assistant Director of CID Roland Jund-has killed a fellow agent and stands accused of being a spy.

Now Agent Cady must draw upon every last bit of experience he has to clear his friend's name while at the same time ensuring that no more innocent lives are extinguished by a sadistic killer with a taste for blood. But nobody is who they appear to be and information is only as reliable as its source.

The stories of Jeffrey B. Burton have appeared in dozens of genre magazines (mystery, horror, sci-fi, literary). Jeff lives in Minneapolis, MN, United States.

Editorial Reviews

The Lynchpin is an exciting, inventive and highly realistic read that will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout. I simply could not put this book down once I started it, it was just that good. Author Jeffrey B. Burton has a gift at drawing characters and situations so beautifully that the reader will feel as if they are right there in the moment, experiencing everything first hand. And I can truly say that I did not anticipate the ending, a highly unusual occurrence for me.
