End of the Line: Parker Noble Murder Mystery

Motive for murder: drugs, embezzlement, annulment?

When former banker R. J. Butler is found murdered on a city transit bus, police take little time making a connection with the embezzlement at his former bank. But is that the motive for his murder? State police detective Sergeant Jerome Stankowski and his persnickety “partner,” Parker Noble, are called to investigate and run into a host of possibilities including a trophy wife on drugs and an ex-wife desperately needing a church annulment R. J. was blocking.

End of the Line is the second book in the Parker Noble murder mystery series.

Advance Praise for Mike’s Upcoming Second Parker Noble Mystery... End of the Line

“Mike Manno has given us a lot to like in End of the Line. A wonderful mystery, plenty of twists, it’s also a story filled with humor, human interest, and a cop-hero you’d love to swap stories with over a couple of beers — or some bad station house coffee.”

David J. Walker, Edgar-nominated author of the Mal Foley and Wild Onion, Ltd. Series

Mike Manno...

...has had a varied career: newspaper editor, real estate broker, politician, lawyer, writer and editor. Currently a practicing attorney in central Iowa, he has parlayed his life-long desire to write with his legal background to create the character Parker Noble.

Parker Noble

The main character in Mike’s series is a disgruntled former prosecutor with the state’s attorney general’s office. Passed over for a promised judgeship and not wanting to return to the courtroom, the AG has assigned him as liaison to the state police where he tags along on murder investigations making life miserable for the real detective, Jerome (Stan) Stankowski. Can we spell “persnickety?”
