Robert L Skidmore is the author of fifteen novels. Circles Within Circles is the second volume of the Conor Gifford series, a complement to the well-received four volume Inspector Richard Thatcher mysteries. This intricately plotted thriller might well be the best of an entertaining lot.

Interim Sheriff Conor Gifford faces an important personal decision. He loves his job, but in order to keep it he must swallow his firm conviction that senior law officials should not be selected at the ballot box. Before he can decide to contest the next election, he finds himself embroiled in complex investigation imposed on him by a lame duck governor and a vicious killer. Ambitious politicians maneuvering for higher office and avaricious developers seeking gain from the construction of a much-needed new highway, complicate Gifford's life. Almost successfully ignoring the demands of former intimates, for Gifford is all too human, Gifford focuses on the apprehension of the killer leaving the machinations of the politicians and the speculators to state and federal authorities. Gifford's persistence and the professionalism of his investigators lead to the unmasking of the perpetrator, a person who ranked among the least suspected.



   


Excerpt

Sheriff Conor Gifford crossed his legs, folded his muscular arms across his ample chest and frowned at Harrison Andrew Tate, Chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. Not intimidated by his best friend's sullen demeanor, the diminutive Tate smiled as he waited for the inevitable protest.
"Damn it Harrison," Gifford finally broke the silence. "You know how much I hate these damned meetings. Bureaucrats and politicians posing as experts on subjects they know nothing about."
"I know, Gif, and I apologize, but the governor called personally and was quite insistent that I send you to represent the county," Tate spoke softly.
