Call of the Blue J by James Byron Holcomb

Beaver's Pond Press announces the publication of political action thriller "Call of the Blue J" (ISBN 978-1-59298-246-2) by Bainbridge Island attorney and author,

James Byron Holcomb.

It is 2008, and the presidential election is about to take place. Jared Justin Juhl, Jr., known as "4J," is ready to accept his party's nomination for re-election in Indianapolis. Unfortunately, his campaign takes a bad turn when he faces murder charges in Plymouth, Indiana for killing Jennifer Blue, his staff aide during his 1980 Senate Campaign twenty-eight years earlier. DNA test results are the basis for solving this "cold case."

A Constitutional crisis looms between U. S. Marshals and the secret service on 4J's side, preventing his arrest for perceived political motivations, and local law enforcement on the other side, intent on arresting him. Both sides are empowered to arrest the other side's members under the jurisdiction of each. Which side prevails in this crisis? Will 4J be found guilty of murder with his DNA found at the scene?

"Call of the Blue J" is a must-read for those seeking an inside view of our criminal justice system involving high profile suspects and the power of DNA. The story line is superbly crafted, taking you through a labyrinth of possible clues and suspects, leading to a climactic end that will keep you on the edge of your seat."    -- Raymond Davis, forensic scientist
