INCEPTION (Short Story):
Detective Damien Kaine and his partner Detective Joe Hagan are waiting to apprehend a murder suspect. However, Damien has a confession to make to Joe, his best friend, and he isn't sure if they will be friends after Damien clears his conscious. Not to mention, an accident happens during the arrest of their suspect that may not only end both their careers but may land them in jail.
Damien Kaine sits in front of his Captain holding his shiny new Lieutenant's shield. It burns his fingers as if it knows he is undeserving of its power-or the new position that comes with it.
His actions from six months ago haunt him and remind him of how close he came to committing his own vicious crime when he held his fiance and her lover at gunpoint in a hotel room. Damien questions if he is the right man to be put in charge of the Vicious Crimes Unit when his judgment failed him so severely.
However, before he can decide on his future, Damien is sent to investigate a series of brutal murders. Together with his team-including an FBI agent that intrigues him as much as she annoys him-Kaine races against time as the body count grows and the killer's focus lands on one of their own.
CONFESSION OF SIN:
Blood coats the steps at St. Florentine Cathedral. Lt. Damien Kaine and his partner stand over the mutilated body of Father Mandahari. Five years as a homicide detective and Damien thought he had seen the worst of humanity. Until now.
A note left by the killer indicates the Catholic Church is hiding secrets, and those secrets are making priests an endangered species.
As Damien and Joe battle the Church to get information that will help them narrow in on a suspect, a secret admirer wants Damien's attention. When Damien receives a gift, it becomes clear this is not schoolgirl crush. Damien's determination to protect those he loves puts him and his partner in a dangerous situation with deadly consequences.
A prominent political figure is murdered, Lieutenant Damien Kaine and Detective Joe Hagan are thrust into Illinois politics. Senator Lockhart, Chicago's favorite son and candidate to be the next Governor, becomes the prime suspect in the killing and the powers that be want the VCU to exonerate him. Damien's family ties only complicate matters.
As the bodies begin to pile up, evidence shows a connection to a case Damien and Joe had five years ago at the 17th precinct. It becomes clear someone is trying to clean house and tie up loose ends.
Damien and Joe are not sure whom they can trust because someone with a lot of power is pulling strings to get their case closed. As they get closer to the real meaning behind the gruesome string of murders, not only do they have a target on their backs but so do those they love.
