The Crime & Reports section of The Arizona Standard newspaper is frustratingly normal – and a little “too soft” for one dogged investigative reporter. With the population in Phoenix pushing one million and the crime rate in steep decline, the time feels right to take a stance on corruption; hard evidence in hand or not. The year is 1976 and the celebration of the Bicentennial is in full swing. All crime is regulated on the western front. That is, until the day arrives for the much anticipated Bicentennial Edition of The Standard, the last issue before a major change is to take place. For what he believes to be his “last hurrah,” Lech Paulowski takes over the front page in order to publish names and faces and crime histories for a select few members of the Mob, linking them all to a greyhound racetrack, and ultimately to a wealthy member of old Arizonan society – a man who prefers to remain untouched inside the barb wire of his isolated desert compound. Corruption is the theme of the second novel by Charles L. Mahoney, author of the literary debut: Story of The Ghost. But is corruption really what it’s all about? Will Lech learn the FBI’s definition and take it to heart? Will he go the proverbial ‘extra-mile’ when pushed to the brink? In true Thriller fashion, The Gray Hound is designed to keep readers guessing from page to page. Nothing is as it seems, even up until the last chapter, the final word.

About the Author:
Author Charles L. Mahoney debuted on the literary scene with the publication of his first novel, Story of The Ghost. A motion picture based on the book is in the works and will hit theaters in late 2016. It includes an alternate football game ending and an incredible score. His second novel, an FBI Thriller called The Gray Hound, will be released on 12/15/14.
He received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona where he also played football for the Wildcats. After graduation, he spent nearly a decade in sales and the technology industry. His novels are inspired by real-life heroes and experiences he’s had, but his overactive imagination renders wholly unique characters and plots. Though skilled in a multitude of writing areas, he is drawn to fiction because of the artistic license it affords.
The author and his family live in sunny Phoenix, Arizona with two completely spoiled dogs. For news and updates, please visit www.cm9publishing.com
