Storm Rising

A Mystery

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


It’s been a rough five years for Lucy Hendricks.

She hasn’t had an easy time of it since her husband, Jack—a devoted and upstanding Bayonne, New Jersey, cop—was murdered while on an investigation. There were suspicions that he’d been involved with the local Mafia, and the media wouldn’t let it go, making life unbearable, so Lucy moved to Florida to raise her son, Kevin, who was born without ever knowing his father.

The distance was healing, but now Lucy is back in New Jersey to pick up the pieces in the same house she and Jack once shared, trying to move on. But the past won’t loosen its grip on the young widow, and it seems to have taken hold of Kevin as well. At first his behavior becomes increasingly erratic; then he begins making statements wise beyond his years, offering specific details about Jack’s murder he couldn’t possibly know. Lucy decides to delve into the mystery surrounding her husband’s death, for her own sanity and for Kevin’s. She can’t trust the cops, it seems, and now the local Don has reached out to her, offering help in clearing Jack’s name. As Hurricane Sandy bears down on Bayonne, Lucy must trust her instincts to save herself and her son from much more than a deadly storm. Douglas Schofield's Storm Rising is not to be missed.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 22, 2016 – A dash of the paranormal spices this exciting crime novel from Schofield (Time of Departure). Five years after the murder of Kevin Hendricks's police detective father, the four-year-old boy demands to go home to Bayonne, N.J., a place he has never been. Kevin's mother, Lucy, grows increasingly uneasy as he recalls memories he couldn't possibly have. Lucy fled to Florida from New Jersey when the investigation into Jack's death concluded that he was crooked. At last ready to face her past, Lucy returns to Bayonne, where she looks into Jack's death, uncovering a car theft ring and another police officer's murder that Jack was investigating on his own time. Turning her evidence over to deputy prosecutor Robert Olivetti leads to Lucy learning of her own family's ties to a Mafia don, Dominic Lanza, and when forced into a partnership with Lanza, Lucy must untangle the lies of the past to save her son and herself. Readers will gladly suspend disbelief as Schofield takes them on a whirlwind ride.
