Gary Slavin, whose interest in good stories was spurred into creation by the stories of his Uncle who was in the CIA, has completed his new book “Four Pebbles on a Bench": a riveting tale where George Price is a retired detective who lives in a quiet, wealthy Long Island community, where the residents jog around the community park to stay in shape. George’s instincts are piqued one morning when a beautiful dark-haired woman quickly gets out of her brand-new black Range Rover, picks up four pebbles, places them on the bench in front of her car, and then quickly walks away.

Slavin writes, "(I) went to work in the insurance and investment industry where (I) helped (my) clients by protecting them and their family from life’s what ifs. (I) guided them through and successfully turned their goals into reality. After thirty years of growing (my) insurance and investment practice into a very successful business, (I) took a break from (my) work to write (my) first book. The inspiration for (my) book was the drug drop (I) witnessed as (I) jogged around a local park. (My) characters are defined by the twists and turns of (my) own life and the stories (I have) heard from (my)clients on what made them a success.”

Published by Page Publishing, Gary Slavin's gripping work delves into how as the woman George Price spots in the park leaves, she is arrested by police for a hit-and-run. According to police, she was high on drugs and hit a child on a bike.

George’s detective talents are sent into overdrive when the local news station reported that an older woman died of a drug overdose. As the picture flashed on the TV screen, George recognized her from the community park. Every morning, she jogged like he did around the park; it didn’t make sense that she would take her own life. That’s when he reached out to a fellow retired detective, Neil Vincent, to get to the bottom of this. In trying to figure out who really killed the woman, Neil and George uncover a drug ring, a drug cartel, the MS-13, and the involvement of the Chinese state secret police and a corrupt FBI agent.

Readers who wish to experience this thrilling book can purchase “Four Pebbles on a Bench" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
