Luke Murphy is the International bestselling author of Dead Man’s Hand, Kiss & Tell, Wild Card and now hitting bookstands on Saturday, June 15, Rock A Bye Baby. Murphy played six years of professional hockey before retiring in 2006. Part of his hockey career was played right here in Port Huron as a Port Huron Border Cat. Murphy has fond memories of his time in Port Huron and keeps in touch with members of the Booster Club and former teammates. His sports column, “Overtime”, was nominated for the 2007 Best Sports Page in Quebec, and won the award in 2009. He has also worked as a radio journalist.
Murphy told WGRT Rock A Bye Baby concerns a series of baby kidnappings that have the town devastated. With no ransom demands and no contact from the perpetrators, local law enforcement is at a dead end. No motive equals no answers. Charlene Taylor’s niece becomes a victim, and the LAPD detective is thrown headfirst into a whirlwind case with similarities to one from seven years earlier. Out of her jurisdiction, and with no friends or leads, Charlene must walk-the-line between cop and sister.
