Dennis Koller's THE CUSTER CONSPIRACY Immerses Readers in Historical Tale of Murder & Intrigue
On June 25, 1876, an overconfident Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer was killed, along with five companies of the Seventh Cavalry who rode with him, at the Battle of the Little Bighorn - or was he?
In The Custer Conspiracy, author Dennis Koller immerses readers in a thrilling tale of murder and intrigue where the facts surrounding Custer's Last Stand were never really the facts at all. And when modern-day history professor Matt Conroy uncovers a deeply buried secret about the ill-fated Custer, he calls an old friend, San Francisco Homicide Inspector Tom McGuire, for advice.
The two agree to meet at the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument to investigate Conroy's discovery, but what McGuire finds is Conroy lying near the memorial obelisk on Last Stand Hill - dead.
The third in Koller's Tom McGuire mystery-thriller series, The Custer Conspiracy follows McGuire as he spirals through a hidden world of political deceit and treachery to find his friend's killer and uncover a truth that could rewrite the history books.
Unfortunately for McGuire, one of the most secretive and dangerous organizations in the world stands in his way and will stop at nothing to make sure its 140-year-old secret remains hidden.
Will Inspector McGuire uncover the truth? Or will he die trying?
