Lowlife Nicky LeBow made a habit of hiding out in strangers’ homes. No one noticed him until the day he entered the wrong house and found himself targeted by both cops and crooks.
Sam Quinton, private investigator and former professional wrestler, didn’t care much about Nicky either, until the squatter ended up dead, and an elderly couple quietly living out their golden years became the killers’ next targets.
Squatter’s Rights is the first book in the Sam Quinton Mystery series.
Sam is a lovable tough guy and makes a great protagonist.
A good read that surfs the ever-changing waves of good and evil.
A great start to a new series! This fast paced detective novel was certainly a page turner.
