The Scopas Factor by Vincent Panettiere
Published: December 2018
An Hmong “story cloth,” the Gadsden flag, forged Picassos and a Russian drug dealer.
How these disparate elements are linked, is Mike Hegan’s latest challenge in The Scopas Factor.
Now on sabbatical from the Chicago Police Department, Hegan will travel from Chicago to California – where he’ll “meet” his girlfriend’s parents – before being drawn to the South of France.
Gradually, each component of his quest will fall into place.
As if facing down a gang who have committed atrocious crimes in Southeast Asia and a drug dealing oligarch is a walk in the park – there are the women.
Three – the traditional one, the aggressive one and the love of his life.
What about Scopas? It’s all Greek to Hegan.
