Author Tim Green discusses his new novel.

Syracuse, NY –
Best-selling author Tin Green is out with his ninth novel. It's a suspense-thriller titled "The First 48" published by Warner Books.

It's about a has-been lawyer, whose daughter, an investigative journalist, is about to expose a corrupt U-S Senator, only to disappear before the story breaks.

As Green explains to WRVO's Chris Ulanowski, he borrowed a concept from police work that says if a missing person or hostage is not found in 48 hours, he or she will never be found alive.
