Andy Hayes Mysteries - An Andy Hayes Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The job seems simple enough: Reporter Lee Hershey needs protection for a couple of weeks as he pursues the biggest story of his career with all eyes on swing state Ohio in the midst of a presidential election. Columbus private eye Andy Hayes, broke as usual, doesn’t have much choice but to sign on, even with his girlfriend falling for the charming journalist.

Then murder strikes at the Statehouse and Andy finds himself partly responsible for the death. With an innocent man behind bars, a mysterious vehicle following Andy around the city, and more lives in danger, the detective has his hands full trying to solve a killing in a poisonous political environment where everyone has a motive for murder and anyone could be the next target.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 08, 2016 – Ohio politics provide the backdrop for Welsh-Huggins's nicely plotted third mystery featuring disgraced former OSU quarterback Andy Hayes (after 2015's Slow Burn). Freelance reporter Lee Hershey, who's been covering a school-funding proposal by Ohio Democrats called Fair Funding Focus ("Leave it to the Democrats" to miss the fact that the acronym is all Fs, Hershey notes), worries that he's being followed, and he hires Andy, now a struggling Columbus PI, to protect him. A lot of politicians, lobbyists, educators, and entrepreneurs have an interest in the outcome, in particular Ohio governor Thomas Hubbard, who wants to impress presidential candidate JoAnn Rodriguez, a California senator, enough to become her vice-presidential running mate. The stakes rise with the discovery of Hershey's dead body in the Ohio Capitol rotunda. Andy must navigate a minefield of powerful personalities with few inhibitions in a cautionary tale that's a perfect read in an election year.
