Framed for murder and coerced to commit fraud, an innocent man is forced to become an outlaw.
Parker’s Choice is a tasty murder mystery served with a dollop of romance and a dash of corporate fraud. Parker has been to prison for a crime he didn’t commit, and he’s not about to let that happen again. He’s thrilled to land a good job after being paroled, until his boss threatens to fire him if he doesn’t facilitate a fraudulent scheme that will cost thousands of Americans their jobs. To complicate matters, a woman’s body is pulled from the Chattahoochee River and the cops make Parker their prime suspect. His clever colleague, Sabrina, bristling at the racial insensitivity of her coworkers, shames Parker into helping her expose the fraud. Unexpectedly, he finds himself romantically attracted to Sabrina as they search for the “smoking gun” that will expose the fraud—the identity of Parker’s elusive birth father. On the run from cops and crooks, the last piece of the puzzle falls into place in a frightening New Orleans cemetery. Then Parker has choices to make.
In this twisting Southern gothic thriller, the choices are between blood ties and Parker's personal sense of right and wrong.

Five stars – Deborah Lloyd for Readers Favorite
“Nemeth masterfully weaves two mysteries together. While the protagonist [Parker] is memorable, supporting characters like Sabrina and Paula also shine. A razor-sharp mystery with twists aplenty.”
