“A gripping story. Randall brings his characters to life, richly depicting their past, and how that past impacts their future. As in all of Randall’s mysteries and thrillers, White Rabbit rings so true, you’ll be left wondering where the line between fiction and reality blurs. Settle in, because you won’t put this novel down.” – Robert Dugoni, author of the Detective Tracy Crosswhite mysteries and The World Played Chess
The impressive new novel from the award-winning author — a heartrending, enthralling mix of cold-case mystery and poltical suspense.

Fifty years ago, Cate and Joe Davis’s family was torn apart by the Vietnam War, the protests, and the disappearance of their older sister, Bobbie. It left their mother and father dead. It left what remained of their family fractured almost beyond repair. And for fifty years it also left dozens of questions unanswered.
Fifty years later, Cate has become a successful novelist and Joe an important artist. Then the FBI comes to her door demanding to know where their sister is, the sister the two Davis’s believe has been dead for a half century. Joe, damaged by the war, fights to keep what sanity hasn’t been destroyed by his memories, And Cate wants nothing more than to mourn the recent loss of her husband. All because the outrageous truth about what happened that day in 1968 that destroyed their family won't stay hidden forever…
Packed with twists and turns, overflowing with emotion and compassion, White Rabbit is mystery fiction at its most fulfilling.
“Secrets, family tragedy, and the turbulent ’60s combine in this page-turning thriller. So rich in period detail, you can hear the anti-war protest marchers.” — James L’Etoile, author of At What Cost, Bury the Past, and Black Label

One sure to fail,
Of developers, lawyers, and foul deeds.

2016 Global Ebook award winner
Detective Tony Alfano hunts a serial killer with connections to Mussolini’s fascist regime. Can Alfano stop the slayings before the greatest international event in Chicago’s history – the arrival of the Italian seaplane armada – or will the Century of Progress World’s Fair be forced to shut down due to fear, terror, and Chicago politics? As always, it all falls on Alfano’s shoulders.
They weighed eight ounces—separately. Each glove laced tight to the tape wrapped fists of the fighter’s abused hands. In total, they added a pound of weight—eight ounces of death dispensing leather and horsehair. The gloves were there to defend the boxer and prolong the battle. Men died wearing them and men killed using them.
On the Depression racked streets of Chicago, it was hard to tell the good from the bad; hard to discover the truth among the lies; and especially hard to find an uncorrupt politician.
It was Detective Tony Alfano’s job to uncover a place to start.
“After setting the brim of his hat, Alfano lit a cigarette, and strolled north up the west side of State Street. This night the sidewalks were full; the weather, for a Friday night in mid-September, was warm and dry. Death hung around the fetid alleys, like a fusty hooker flirting for a well-oiled trick.”
Detective Anthony Alfano, tugged his crisply pressed dark grey suit, snugged up his red silk tie, and adjusted the Colt in its shoulder holster. He was tall, sharply thin, the pin stripes in his suit added an inch or two to his height. His face was narrow, with a hard, long jaw, thin mouth, and a fashionably crisp William Powell mustache. The mustache supported a sharp, slightly hooked nose (with a perceptible kink on its ridge due to it being broken a few times) that anchored his face like a spike driven between his dark grey eyes under grey eyebrows. Hidden under his grey fedora was a thick head of black hair, that was evolving to grey at the temples. If grey were a craving, Tony Alfano was a seriously grey serving.

In the 25th century, when humans have colonized the moon and Mars and established outposts in the asteroid belt, a particular breed of men and women have evolved the industrial art of asteroid harvesting. Dragging chunks of primordial rock and ice to smelters circling Earth and Mars, they have become the principal source of raw materials for all these new world’s metals, fuels, water and breathable air.

On this last drag, he discovers a rock that is more than he expected; in fact, more than the whole of humanity bargained for. Can this one asteroid answer humankind’s greatest questions: Are we alone in this universe and is there something else out there?
What is in Sector 73 that will forever change civilization’s and religion’s beliefs? What elemental spark will drive the world to demand: Who are we and where did we come from?
