Trestle Press and author David L. Hoof will be releasing another of his full length novels- "Triple Jeopardy". David L. Hoof is the author of "Sharpshooter", a full length novel and "The Big Rip" a digital short story. All are available on Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook.Here is the synopsis and author biography:
In Triple Jeopardy, two co-dependent subplots, intertwined and braided like a strong rope, run alternately and interactively in linear time, and pit the wills of rich husband and wife Richard and Cynthia Speckt to separate triumphantly from a marriage gone sour. In order to defeat a draconian clause that multibillionaire Richard placed in their pre-nup, Cynthia hires kidnappers to spirit her husband away to a magical island and provide proof of his infidelity, the only condition under which Cynthia is not a big loser in divorce. Unknown to her or her team of specialists, Richard, through a felonious former associate has hired a hit man to kill Cynthia, a result that – if successful -- will net him all of her assets as sole survivor. Caught in the middle and starting clueless of the underlying intrigues is Denny Potemkin, a dead ringer for Richard, an unknown, unemployed method actor and impressionist who – while standing (and lying) in for the kidnapped Richard and trying to keep the world’s economy from toppling – begins to wonder if in the end he becomes the man who knows too much. The tone is light and satirical, a blend of Wall Street with The War of the Roses, irreverently mixing a delicious combination of malice and paranoia that, like the adversarial spouses, is served cold but often simmers hot. In an ending where nothing and everything changes, both partners get what they most want but not all they want, and certainly not without unanticipated consequences.
