John Adam Wasowicz, author and attorney, sets his novels in Old Town Alexandria, near his home.

Roaches Run is his fourth novel.
''Murder, mayhem, and revenge play out against a background of the COVID pandemic and the January 6 insurrection in the latest installment of the Elmo Katz mystery series. In his fourth novel, Wasowicz gives US Attorney Katz and his colleagues 72 hours on Memorial Day weekend to foil alleged terrorist attacks near the US Capitol. At stake are hundreds of innocent lives. Events cascade at lightning speed to make for riveting storytelling.'' --Nancy A. Olson, BRATTLEBORO REFORMER correspondent and freelance writer
"Roaches Run draws in the intricate activities of the very likable characters from the previous Mo Katz murder mysteries, but Mr. Wasowicz develops them with intriguing stories of previous events in their lives. It captures more of the local color of the DC area and keeps you engaged. The fate of the corrupt, egocentric and not very clever counterterrorism official comes with a surprising twist and gives readers food for good conversation." - Beverly Tomasello
"This is the fourth installment of Mo Katz and company, and enjoyed the twist in the end. Did not expect it and was really glad I finished this book. You would not be disappointed! Enjoy!" - Kim Elliott
"The story's pacing is tight, taking place over the Memorial Day weekend (so roughly three days)." - Peter Arzberger
