RJ Ellory returns with a high-concept thriller set in an alternate period-America, delving into the heart of the U.S.A's murky political landscape

IT WAS THE SHOT HEARD AROUND THE WORLD
On 22nd November 1963, John F. Kennedy's presidential motorcade rode through Dealey Plaza. He and his wife Jackie greeted the crowds on a glorious Friday afternoon in Dallas, Texas.

BUT WHAT IF IT MISSED?
Mitch Newman is a photojournalist based out of Washington, D.C. His phone never rings. When it does, a voice he hasn't heard in years will tell him his former fiancée Jean has taken her own life.

WHEN THE TRUTH IS BIGGER THAN ALL THE LIES
Jean was an investigative reporter working the case of a lifetime. Somewhere in the shreds of her investigation is the truth behind her murder.

WHO WOULD BELIEVE IT?
For Mitch, piecing together the clues will become a dangerous obsession: one that will lead him to the dark heart of his country - and into the crossfire of a conspiracy...

The Cop is the second book in award-winning author R.J. Ellory's electrifying ebook-exclusive trilogy, THREE DAYS IN CHICAGOLAND. The testimonies of the sister, the cop and the killer will at last reveal the dreadful truth behind the brutal murder of a young girl in Chicago in 1956.

Looking back, it's always so easy to make the right decision...My name is Detective Maguire of Chicago PD 9th Precinct Homicide Division. I got a wife, two kids, and a job that some days can suck the life outta you. This case, this pretty kindergarten teacher choked to death on her kitchen floor, should have been open and shut. We did our research, canvassed the neighborhood and finally we got our man. Walked in right off the street, don't you know, and owned up to it. One killer, one confession, one sure-fire conviction. And yet, something just don't sit right for me. And the devil is in the details, or so they say.
