Publisher's Summary

Eleven years ago General Whittaker, long retired, former member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, bought an alibi for his grandson who had been arrested for the murder of his fiancée, Ileana Corrigan, and the general’s unborn great grandson. The charges were soon dropped and the grandson released. General Whittaker is now dying, and he can no longer restrain his doubts. 

The question that has haunted him all these years must be answered. Did his money save his innocent grandson or cheat justice?

The general hires Matt Kile to thaw this cold case. The solution of the crime is complicated by the passage of years and an excess of suspects, including the general’s grandson, the general’s promiscuous adult daughter, and even the general himself. All had means, motive, and opportunity. 

Matt Kile is a former homicide detective and a pardoned ex-con who, like several real-life former cops, has gone on to achieve success as a writer of mystery fiction.

Matt’s efforts are aided by a colorful cast of Damon Runyonesque characters. Chief among them is Axel, Matt’s former cellmate whose parole, after more than 30 years in prison, had been advanced by Matt’s promise of a job. He is also helped by Hillie, a young, inexperienced streetwalker Axel takes under his wing. Then there’s Bruno Grunsky, a former mob wheelman, and retired spinster Clara Birnbaum who makes pies in return for Axel’s favors. This mixed bag of characters add flavoring to the story, while each, in their own way, help Matt Kile determine the guilt or innocence of General Whittaker’s grandson.

The Original Alibi is a big story told on a small stage, intimately portrayed primarily among the members of the Whittaker family and those who serve them. It deals with the secrets and strategies that fester inside an outwardly functional and famous family.

A stunning, fast-paced mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Fans of mystery authors from Michael Connelly to Raymond Chandler will love the second installment of this series from international best-selling author David Bishop.
