Jeremy Logan is the pen name for this one-time attorney that served the energy industry. His specialty was being a first responder to industry disasters as incident attorney and claims manager. He began writing mystery novels in 2010, publishing Don't Go There in 2013 and The Rubik Memorandum in 2015.
Being an author of novels was a lifelong aspiration of this one-time English literature major that came about when he could wait no longer. He sold his consulting practice and embarked on a new career, becoming a novelist. "I've had the luxury of being instrumental in the successful response to several incredible and horrific disasters, coming across many outrageously interesting people in my career, some heroes and some scoundrels, which provided me with treasure trove of stories and characters to draw upon to invent my own dramas."
The Trigger Effect
Seventeen-year-olds Sarah Thompson and Blair Rogers were in love. They were smart, attractive, popular, and about to enter their senior year in high school. Their parents were affluent and lived in a newly-developed country club community of Thomas Glen.
So why were they found lying dead, one piled on top of the other, next to the dumpsters behind the grocery store?
What could they have done to deserve this?
Lieutenant Reed Pasco and Detective Denise Smith are experienced homicide investigators in Dallas County, Texas. However, they’ve never seen a crime scene quite as mysterious as this. There is no evidence of drugs, no sign of a robbery, and no indication of a struggle. Their vehicles were parked only yards away and wiped clean of fingerprints. Suspects are scarce or nonexistent.
But with their deaths, these two teenagers spark a chain reaction, infecting everyone they touched with a plague of misfortune, revealing secrets, perversion, and violence beyond measure.

Sometimes your classmate can be a serial killer. In real life, mine was. One of his victims was Charlene, the twin sister of Michelle, the girl I loved. Michelle was also the one thing the killer coveted most. It changed her profoundly. It changed us.
What turned Clay into such a monster? The stunningly attractive Michelle and I were eighteen. He was nineteen when he killed his first victim. Why Charlene? Was she picked at random, or was revenge a part of the equation? And why did he start sending Michelle letters two years later.
What happened when the killing no longer satisfied the monster? Clay matured into a captor, enslaving girls until their charm wore thin, and then they were put out of their misery in a horrific manner. Would that continue or was there something missing? Could he become so twisted that he would kill Michelle, the person he coveted most?
In the years between 1967 and 1980, twenty-six people were victims of serial killers in Atlanta. How could I prevent Michelle from becoming the next victim? I chose to hunt the hunter.

FICTION / Crime
The main, east coast fuel depot that supplies the U.S. Navy and Air Force, is on fire. Among the responders is a crisis management firm that specializes in disasters for the oil industry.
Their chief causation investigator, Victor Majeski, is the only one that believes it was an intentional act of sabotage from within. His firm is told to back off that theory, while the FBI and NCIS pursue Islamic terrorist groups. However, Majeski continues to follow his leads.
What he discovers is an insidious scheme of murder, deceit and revenge. While all the evidence found points to foreign conspirators, and then to countries that support Islamic jihad against the U.S., Majeski sees through it.
People are being murdered around him, and then he becomes the target of the conspirators, but he escapes their reach. When he suspects government and military leaders that are funded by a super wealthy oil magnate are behind the conspiracy, his firm finds allies with the U.S. Attorney General and the military that are prepared to oppose the plot.
A final showdown looms as Majeski and his company uncover evidence that someone is plotting to destroy another military fuel depot. Is it the same conspirators in a plot to overthrow the U.S. government, or is it Islamic terrorists?
After a series of double-cross maneuvers by each side to prevent the other from discovering their intentions it all plays out as political pressure builds to find out who is behind the Craney Island incident, and if military action should be used to retaliate.
