Rocco Mancuso looks like a hit man though he is an Ivy League attorney who works for the us Atomic Energy Commission investigating nuclear espionage. Ty Rettig is a millionaire psychopath managing a major AEC site that produces plutonium for nuclear weapons. Rettig organizes a major scam and murders several people to cover it up. With no love life and a boss who despises him, Mancuso washes away sorrow with too much beer. Mancuso solves the biggest case of his career and thinks he’s falling in love when he is assigned to investigate missing plutonium. His investigation places Mancuso squarely in Rettig’s cross hairs. If he exposes Rettig, he will be murdered. But can he live with himself if he doesn’t? Pernicious Proclivities is a murder mystery you won’t put down.
