A shotgun blast shatters a window in a Palm Beach home, and a prominent citizen is felled. Murder in Palm Beach is a novel closely based on a sensational assassination in 1976. The murder made headlines for 15 years.

In the thin guise of fiction, the book contains shocking new information, never before made public, about the killer and the important, unlikely person behind the slaying. Author Bob Brink, an award-winning journalist, was a newspaper reporter where the event occurred.

An ambitious prosecutor pins the deed on Mitt Hecher, a hoodlum, and karate expert. While he is in prison, his loving wife contracts a usually fatal disease. Investigators track down myriad scenarios. Is he guilty? This is a story of redemption wrapped in a mystery involving power, sex, violence, and romance.
