Novak’s Quest is now available

Police Chief Karol Novak’s planned retirement is sidetracked when a dying man’s wish draws him into investigating the unsolved murder of a young woman two decades before. As the investigation unfolds, Novak and his team discover a similar unsolved murder. Are the two deaths related or are they the work of a serial killer? While they work to answer these questions, this small, undermanned police force must also find a three-year-old child who has disappeared without a trace.

From Reedsy Discovery: Jim Lewis has done a fine job with this novel, the second in the Novak series. He knows his characters and their personalities, which gives the book a cohesive feel. The dialogue is strong, and believable. The motives of the characters seem true, and relevant… Instead of violence, the book focuses on unravelling the secrets that surround the three different cases. By working together the officers in the Boyleston police force solve cases. It’s the collaborative nature of the individuals that makes Novak’s Quest such an enjoyable read.
