Journey's End by Bill Jack
This first novel combines murder and mayhem with a friendship between two men that lasted decades. Will Bennett and Sam Greenberg had had each other's back for longer than they cared to talk about. When Greenberg goes missing, it is up to Will and his spouse, the Honorable Alexandra Kennedy, to find him, a journey that takes them from the high desert of New Mexico to the shores of Lake Michigan to the crowded streets of Northern Virginia. This novel is about friendship and the ties that bind.
