Killer Pursuit by Jeff Gunhus 
(Allison McNeil) 
Publication date: January 10th 2016
Genres: Adult, Thriller

Synopsis:

When a high-society call girl is murdered in her Georgetown home, investigators find two cameras hidden in the walls of her bedroom. One has its memory erased, presumably by the murderer. The second is connected to the Internet through an encrypted connection…and no-one knows who’s on the other end.

Special Agent Allison McNeil is asked by beleaguered FBI Director Clarence Mason to run an off-the-record investigation of the murder. The most direct path to apprehending the killer is to find the videos, but with rumors that the victim’s client list may have included Mason’s political enemies, Allison worries about the director’s motives. As she starts her investigation, she quickly discovers that she’s not the only one pursuing the videos. In fact, the most aggressive person racing against her might be the murderer himself.

Excerpt

          Marshall “Libby”
Ashworth had not been nervous for a meeting in years. Although just turned
fifty, he had seen too damn much to bother with nerves. Heads of state, U.S.
presidents, celebrities, all had been part of his everyday routine for the last
two decades and the novelty had long worn off. Just like anyone else, famous
people used the john, got stupid when they drank too much, smelled bad when
they sweat and were generally more flawed than John Q Public could ever guess.
As a staffer, he’d
watched George W. Bush waddle through security briefings asking questions that
proved one child had been left behind and he was sitting in the White House.
Libby Ashworth was there when that sycophant Clinton said goodnight to the
donors who’d ponied up the cash to spend the night in the Lincoln bedroom. He’d
cried as the first African-American President was sworn in, only to see him
fumble through a presidency high on promise and miserably low on results. And
it wasn’t just the executive branch. He’d seen Senate leaders hold up funding
for needy families for no other reason than because a bill’s author had
bad-talked someone during a poker game. And he’d seen Supreme Court Justices so
drunk they couldn’t walk straight, talking trash about the sacred court on
which they sat.
He’d seen enough of
Washington to know better than to hold the people who worked there in enough
regard to ever be nervous to meet them.
Except the meeting
today was different.
This meeting had
him very nervous.
And that scared
him.
