Join New York Times top 10 crime novelist David Swinson for the book launch of TRIGGER, the third book in the acclaimed Frank Marr series. Swinson will be joined in conversation with Wallace Stroby, author of SOME DIE NAMELESS.

Why chocolate? We created very unique flavor combinations in honor of the main character Frank Marr. As simple as it is, he loves rum and enjoys grapefruits. And who doesn't like good chocolate? 

"Drunken Chocolate" - Rum Raisin Dark 

"Recovery Grapefruit"- White Chocolate Grapefruit Truffles

In the latest novel from David Swinson, "one of the best dialogue hounds in the business" (New York Times Book Review), Frank Marr, a good cop with a bad habit, must choose between justice and loyalty to an old friend.

Frank Marr was a good cop, until his burgeoning addictions to alcohol and cocaine forced him into retirement from the D.C. Metro police. Now, he's barely eking out a living as a private investigator for a defense attorney--also Frank's ex-girlfriend.

Ostracized by his family after a botched case that led to the death of his baby cousin, Jeffrey, Frank was on a collision course with rock bottom. Now clean and clinging hard to sobriety, Frank passes the time--and tests himself--by robbing the houses of local dealers, taking their cash and flushing their drugs down the toilet. When an old friend from his police days needs Frank's help to prove he didn't shoot an unarmed civilian, Frank is drawn back into the world of dirty cops and suspicious drug busts, running in the same circles that enabled his addiction those years ago.

Never one to play by the rules, Frank recruits a young man he nearly executed years before. Together--a good man trying not to go bad and a bad man trying to do good--detective and criminal charge headfirst into the D.C. drug wars. Neither may make it out.
