“An explosion at Grant’s tomb pulls Peter Hajek, a New York City detective, rapidly into his work. Solving the case gets him noticed by the mayor, who then requests his help in the murder of a young woman, daughter of someone connected to the mayor.
The author writes exceptional dialogue in a quick moving, involved plot, but more significantly, writes a compelling human story to which readers will immediately relate.

More than a detective story, “Not over It” explores loss and love. Back at work and watching others cope with the deaths of their loved ones, Peter Hajak tries to find a way to start a new life without Francine. But he makes bad decisions. His superiors start to question his judgment – and so does he. The strong characters and intricate plot makes this a great read. --Joyce Hunsucker, Kentucky

Loved the pace of this book. As each chapter ended I felt compelled to keep reading and find out what Hajek would do next. I liked the personality of this main character and found him more interesting than the detectives ususlly portrayed in movies and books. --Joan Angele Lee, MA

Wonderful! Suspenseful and well-paced, a story which had me gripped. Characters are believable as is the plot and dialogue. I thoroughly enjoyed it. --Marion Cimini Brooklyn, NY

This book was a fast read. It is easily identifiable with every day problems that many people experience.. Detective Hajek is given a murder case to solve, this while going through personal loss of a loved one. I really like how the Author used short chapters to enhance the desire to keep reading quickly, to get closer to the killer Detective Hajek is searching for.

Hajek is very likable- a "real" person, struggling with the loss of his wife and getting back into work. Was not predicable which made me want to keep reading to see what would happen next. Looking forward to more Hajek adventures!


Reviews for "Five Star Fraud"

“I cannot tell you how many times when reading your book that my
reaction to a passage was to think “that reminds me of the case where…”
Your characters rang true. I could match them to people I have encountered
over the years. You show that whistleblowers and their families pay a high
price for doing the right thing. Your novel reflected reality so closely at
times it was spooky.”

“In Five Star Fraud, Cahill's dialogue is superb, and the action keeps readers engaged from page one until the end, leaving them hungry for the epilogue page to know what later became of each character in this timely and frighteningly believable novel.”

FIVE STAR FRAUD is an excellent read---I couldn't put it down. Neil Landers is a
believable character who works for such a disreputable company that I immediately
connected with the scandals of the past five years in corporate America. Great fiction
with interesting scientific facts" -----D. Spigarolo, Bridgeport, CT

FIVE STAR FRAUD chronicles the travails of a scientist who notified the
government of blatant safety infractions within his company that imperiled
nuclear power plants. The government agency is hopelessly inept, the
company owners vicious and vindicative, and the lawyers are corrupt.
FIVE STAR FRAUD a thoughtful read, as well as an exciting one.”
--C. Noonan, Fairfax, VA

"FIVE STAR FRAUD is a 5 star read! It's a real page turner on the order of Silkwood
and in the tradition of other memorable whistleblower classics. Enduring trials and
tribulations they are unsung heroes of our age. This is a natural to be a movie. You
are in for a fast ride, fasten your seatbelt and enjoy."
---Bill Fox New Canaan, CT

FIVE STAR FRAUD is an electrifying read with a David-Goliath feel, pitting the
lone scientist versus corporate greed and fraud. The main character’s courage and
integrity are tested at every turn by a hostile work environment, inept government
regulators, greedy attorneys and possible pending nuclear disaster.”
---K. Cummings, Seattle, WA

“Neil Landers is an American hero. He gathers inner strength from the memory of his immigrant grandparents, his wife and a cast of characters he meets along his journey exposing corporate wrong doing to increase profits. The importance of watch dog
groups become evidently clear as the novel twists and turns at a fast pace.
FIVE STAR FRAUD exposes the dangers we live amongst every day.”
---T. McCuen, Gastonia, NC
