Mercury & Murder

Mercury & Murder (Beowulf Chronicles Book 2)

Former Marine Kurt West is a bounty hunter who, when not chasing bail jumpers, tracks down aliens who stray outside the lines of the normally quiet–and supposedly alien-free–Chapel Hill.
 
As the college town’s annual Halloween street party approaches, the man accused of a chilling execution-style murder has skipped out on bail and fear grips the community. Kurt gets the call to bring him in, but soon discovers ties between his fugitive and the illicit alien drug trade. When a floater turns up in a lake, apparently killed with an alien weapon, Kurt suddenly has two high-priority cases. But do the cases connect? And do they lead where Kurt thinks or to some place even more deadly?
