DR. DECLAN MURPHY DISCOVERS A MURDER IN THE MARSH.

DR. DECLAN MURPHY CONFRONTS ESCALATING TERROR AND MURDER WHILE INVESTIGATING ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS AND THEIR REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH EFFECTS.

“Unfortunately, Paris Laveau has escaped and is on the loose,” Rosemary said.
“I know. That bothers me a lot. Paris is a predator and has the survival instincts of a cockroach. I don’t think either the Louisiana state police or the F.B.I. is going to catch her.”
“She can’t hide forever. The Laveaus are just glorified trailer trash. I don’t know how she was able to get over on Marcellus, but she doesn’t have the resources that are necessary to stay off the F.B.I.’s radar. Sooner or later, they’re going to roll her up.”
“I hope so, but I’m not so certain. Paris is an excellent chameleon, which actually makes her more reptilian than a cockroach. Sociopaths don’t have an identity of their own, so they become great mimics. Finding her isn’t going to be easy. She’s got a lot of tricks.”
“I’m not as worried about her as you are. Somehow she got the better of Sheriff Greene, but I don’t think there’s any chance that she’s coming back here. Right now, Paris needs a deep hidey hole. That hole is deepest in the bayous of southwest Louisiana. Coming back to Charleston only makes her more visible and vulnerable.”
“You’re probably right, but you should’ve seen the look in her eyes when you slapped her face. She hates you, and she hates me. Paris isn’t the kind to forgive or forget a slight.”


“...What Becomes is Newman’s best novel to date. His latest page turner is a medical thriller, a mystery, and a love story, all wrapped in one, highly enjoyable, fast-paced adventure, a must read. That’s one thing I’m certain of.” — Bill Noel, author of the best-selling Folly Beach Mystery series including the award- winning Boneyard Beach.

“A medical eco-thriller that crackles with wit and colorful, brainy characters. The environmental misdeeds and their chilling implications for human health are utterly, alarmingly believable. With the unerring talent of a gifted storyteller, Roger Newman layers on the suspense, holding us willingly captive to the final, disquieting line.”—Donna Cousins, author of The Story of Bones

“The further adventures of amateur detective Dr. Declan Murphy, Ob-Gyn, is threatened when a suspect in a previous novel escapes police custody and vows revenge. Author Roger Newman weaves his narrative into a tapestry of real people, real places and real events so artfully done, the reader soon forgets What Becomes is fiction. And that’s writing at its very best.”—Roger Pinckney, author of Blue Roots, Reefer Moon and The Mullet Manifesto
