The lives of Albuquerque homicide detective Joe Denali and accused murderer Penny Murphy come together in A PENNY FOUND, a novel that includes bank fraud, a Mexican mafia connection and one woman’s desire to break free of a life of abuse.
When Joe’s fellow detective undergoes critical heart surgery, he comes face-to-face with his own mortality and failures. His assignment to find the killer of a man tied to a bed in his own basement is hampered by his friend’s illness and his own personal problems.
Sold by her father at age fifteen, Penny Murphy spends ten years imprisoned by fifty-year old banker Gabe Russo. Never completely broken by her imprisonment, when the opportunity arises, Penny leaves a drunken and injured Russo tied to a bed in his own basement and escapes with his car, his money and his gun.
Mercy Smith and Billy Clause come into Penny’s life and appear to be her answer to freedom. She goes to work in Clause’s bar, but when Clause learns of Russo’s death, he takes Penny’s car from her. Once again she is trapped in a different type of prison.
