Handwriting expert and Holocaust survivor, Jacob Bruno has his life take a fateful turn when asked to restrict testimony on a forgery case, yet swear an oath to God to tell the whole truth. Conflicted, the old graphologist takes on the haughty Judge Wellingham and pays a big price, fined $10,000 and put in jail for contempt of court.
In covering this lightning rod case, Modern Times ace reporter, Rudy Styne, expects it to become a cover story, when out of nowhere, a nine-year-old up and coming ice skater and cover-girl darling, Jay Jay Martin, is kidnapped from her home in Bountiful Utah. With a hundred reporters flocking to the state, and Rudy's court story pushed to the back burner, Rudy requests to join the herd, particularly when it is revealed that there is a ransom note implicating the ice skater's father, corporate megastar, Skipper Martin. Who else would be best to compare the father's handwriting to the ransom note than Jacob Bruno?
Marc Seifer has constructed a dizzyingly complex tale which involves a love affair between palm reader Max Minkowski, and a young graphologist and Jacob Bruno protégé, Sarah Calloway. This story takes the reader to an incest cult in Utah, to a psychic troupe touring the Northeast and back to New York City where Jacob Bruno is involved in another forgery case that leads to manslaughter. Can Rudy Styne find the kidnapper or solve the murder? Will the hit man kill again or get off scot-free? Find out in FATE LINE: A Graphological Murder Mystery.
