Return of the Lost Jitney
by John T. Griffen

Brian Layne is a ramp agent with International Airlines who becomes involved in a series of mysterious and unpredictable events.

After losing his job for breaking his supervisorís jaw because of a racial slur, Brian turns to being a jitney to support his family. His relationship with his wife takes a negative turn when he finds her in bed with another man.

Now a suspect in the murder, Brian is hired to assist in the investigation by the dead manís mother. Brian falls back on his training in criminal justice and reluctantly aids the distraught and grieving woman. What he finds is life-threatening to other people and to himself.
