Two years after the murder of his daughter, Governor Duncan Cochrane must hunt down a sniper and a blackmailer.

Crime Thriller, Political Thriller, Murder Mystery]

Two years have passed since the murder of Duncan Cochrane's daughter. As governor, he now holds the power to punish all criminals, yet he cannot prosecute her killer without destroying his political career.

Then two new threats emerge: a sniper begins targeting people in Chicago's most notorious housing project, Cabrini Green; and a blackmailer plans to reveal his ruinous family secret.

To protect his own family and those he governs, he moves into the tenements and begins parallel manhunts for both enemies. Along the way, he faces menacing gangs, a mysterious layman, indifferent police, and self-serving politicians, all of whom impede his investigations.

"They Tell Me You Are Crooked" is the second in a trio of novels detailing Duncan's rise to prominence and the personal cost of his public ambitions.


Evolved Publishing presents the first book in the Duncan Cochrane series of crime mysteries detailing Duncan's rise to prominence and the personal cost of his public ambitions.


"It works as a whodunit, but it's Cochrane's story and political life that'll provide the fuel for this series." Crime Thriller Hound

..".a compelling picture of the Windy City when it was still in thrall to the mob and its own unique political machine." Shots Magazine

..".outstanding and it is so well-written and well-plotted that it is hard to believe it is a debut novel." Theresa O'Loughlin

"This is one of those surprise-ending novels that are so tightly constructed that it's hard to write synopsis without giving away an important detail. Hagerty makes a contemporary political point, but gently enough that you can just enjoy the story if you are not interested in the politics. If you are interested in modern American politics, he may help you understand how people come to take sides on a current issue." Scott D. Saifer
