They Tell Me You Are Crooked
By David Hagerty
They Tell Me You Are Crooked is the second in a trilogy of crime novels about Duncan Cochrane, an ambitious businessman who aspires to be governor of Illinois. In this story, he hunts a sniper who is picking off residents of Chicago’s most infamous housing project while trying to maintain the family secret that could ruin him.
David Hagerty conceived the Duncan Cochrane trilogy after hearing the story of a U.S. senator from his hometown in suburban Chicago whose daughter was murdered six weeks before election day. The first two books were composed while he lived in Sacramento. He now lives in the Bay Area and is at work on the third installment.
