“The Red Hand,” serving as a prequel to the book “The Swamps of Jersey,” which first launched the captivating “Frank Nagler Mystery” series, sets the foundation for a thrilling journey through the complex world of investigative mysteries.

This exciting story takes place on the busy streets of Ironton, N.J., where a dedicated investigator sets out to find the truth before economic trouble, political corruption, and a government money scandal bring a wave of darkness over the once-bustling industrial hub.

While rookie detective Frank Nagler struggles to settle into his new role in the Ironton, N.J., police department, a chilling realization sets in when a gruesome homicide case has been assigned to him with no clear leads or suspects. Could a serial killer be on the loose in his beloved hometown?

As the body count rises to a staggering nine victims, all from different walks of life and different parts of Ironton, Nagler finds himself thrust into a world of darkness, with no clear pattern or motive emerging from the killings. Against an atmospheric and moody town struggling to cope with the heinous crimes, Nagler must dig deep to uncover the truth behind the murders and bring the killer to justice.

This gripping and thrilling tale will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page.
