Deliberate Duplicity – David Rohlfing

Deliberate duplicity

One by one, dead bodies are being found at different points along the Constitution Trail, where abandoned railroad tracks once ran through the “Twin Cities” of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. The work of a calculating, methodical killer, each body is posed on the ground with the eyes manipulated so they remain wide open – witnesses who cannot testify to what they’ve seen. David Rohlfing’s debut novel, Deliberate Duplicity (available January 5, 2021, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and IndieBound) explores the twisted, vengeful mind of a serial killer, and follows dedicated detective Sasha Frank, who is hell-bent on solving the mystery behind this string of gruesome crimes. A complicated web of clues leaves Sasha and his team with more questions than answers: What’s the killer’s motive? And how are the victims connected to one another? As the story begins to unravel, the ordinarily calm and collected Sasha begins to feel the immense pressure of the case. Will he be able to solve the mystery before time runs out, and bring justice to all who were affected?
