Mike Mackay Author Interview

Scam at Five Mile Road follows Jack on a new assignment that seems straightforward, find missing money, but after a string of near misses, he finds that someone is willing to kill to keep their secret. What were some sources that informed the development of this novel?

This is based on true events which happened in the automotive component industry.

I did a lot of consulting in this industry and was the one who uncovered what was going on.

What scene in the book did you have the most fun writing?

The one where I am leading up to the discovery.

As it was a true event and clear in my mind, getting that same clarity across to the reader was fun.

What were some challenges you set for yourself as a writer with this book?

To get a better balance, with dialogue and description without losing My Voice.

What is one surprising way you’ve seen Jack Rhodes’ character develop in this book?

Jack’s sense of justice is heightened due to the killings that occur.

Jack Rhodes’ latest assignment seems straightforward. Investigate Link Industries’ Plymouth factory in Michigan, locate the company’s missing money, track for possible theft, and investigate the deaths of three men. The company’s current management says there’s a possible systems glitch, no stock is missing, and the deaths are tragic accidents, nothing more. But the company owner and Jack’s sometimes-lover, Stella West, disagrees.

Once he arrives at the facility, it’s clear not everyone is happy about his arrival. After a string of near misses, it is evident that someone wants him out of the picture and is not afraid to get their hands dirty.

As Jack closes in on the culprit, he inadvertently places everyone he comes in contact with in danger. If he doesn’t get results fast, there’ll be more to lose than the factory and the people he cares for. This time, there won’t be any escape from the darkness within.
