A fatal accident at the circus sparks an insurance investigation that leads John Nieves, a former New York cop, to a list of murder suspects. It seems that The Great Rollo, beloved of millions, had enemies... both at the circus and among his own family. All that is surreal and magical about the circus brings out Nieves' deepest fears, blinding him to the very real danger that is closer at hand. A bizarre series of revelations and coincidences keep Nieves' suspicions of the circus people high, even after the actual evidence suggests that the incident really was only an unfortunate accident. The furtive actions of Rollo's wife and brother, the beneficiaries of his insurance, lead Nieves into even dirtier family secrets. Apparent attempts on his life from all quarters threaten Nieves, but he refuses to drop the case until the whole truth of who killed The Great Rollo is revealed.

3.0 A Spark of Justice by J.D. Hawkins
I won't even attempt to deny that it was the circus aspect that drew me to read this book. When J.D. Hawkins contacted me for a review, he mentioned that he had lived and traveled with the circus for many years. First hand knowledge promised me a vibrant setting, realistic scenes, and a new glossary...

5.0 The feels! Oh the feels!
"The first thing you learn on the lion tamer team is to stay out of the path of the urine." This has turned out to be one of those real indie gems that are such a joy to discover. To start with, the editing and grammar are pristine. I didn't notice a single typo. It has obviously been professional...
