Duncan Cochrane: They Tell Me You Are Wicked (Political Thriller and Murder Mystery)
David Hagerty, author
The time is 1978, and the setting is Chicago, where Richard Daley’s death has left the political machine grasping for a successor. Into that vacuum steps Duncan Cochrane, a successful businessman with little political experience but with aspirations of becoming governor. Six weeks before election day, Duncan awakes to find his daughter has been killed in her bed. With a police investigation that seems to drag on aimlessly and time working against him, Duncan must use whatever power and influence he has to catch the killer and win the election.

"It works as a who-dunnit but it’s the Cochranes story and political life that’ll provide the fuel for this series."
“a compelling picture of the Windy City when it was still in thrall to the mob and its own unique political machine.”
