Dave Haggard. Radio street reporter in Washington, D.C. He's a bit rough around the edges for the public radio crowd but he's willing to go where the dandified won't go, so he's on the payroll.
Book one of the Dave Haggard series is Butterfly Knife. A crazed lunatic is using the weapon to murder priests. Dave finds himself at the center of the investigation and he and his girlfriend are used as bait by the police and the F.B.I. It might be the worst story idea he ever had. It nearly kills him.
Book two is Brass Knuckles. This story features cameos from three real broadcasters: Jim Bohannon, Neal Augenstein, and Jim Russell. They graciously agreed to "help" Dave as the story progresses.
This time he's chasing a story of assassination, greed, and an out of control hired killer.A federal judge is shot down outside the courthouse in Washington. A member of Congress is being investigated for skimming Oak Ridge cleanup money. A professional assassin, a former army sniper, is on the loose. Brass Knuckles takes you inside the world of investigative reporting in Washington, where journalists and their sources feed off each other. Dave Haggard, ace reporter for Now News, is again in the center of a dangerous search for the truth about murder, millions of dollars skimmed from the federal government by a powerful subcommittee chairman, and the madness of one man. The search for the truth runs through the F.B.I., the Justice Department, the office of a high powered defense attorney, Capitol Hill, and the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee, to its shattering conclusion.
