Double Frame

Everyone acknowledges Felix Thayer’s intelligence. But if he’s so smart, why does he appear to have murdered a co-worker in such an unbelievably sloppy, obvious manner? His wife wants answers and hires Sam Quinton to find them, whether those answers exonerate her husband or send him to death row.

One Helluva gig

Rob Jeffers has it all: fame, money, and the life of a rock and roll star. Frank Peters is a regular guy, a newspaper reporter who just happens to have a passing acquaintance with the Great Jeffers. As Jeffers’s career shoots up, Peters’s fortunes follow in his wake.

And when Jeffers passes away at the height of his fame, Peters’s life begins a steady unravelling. Until a chance encounter on a minor story gives him a new outlook on the celebrity lifestyle, and new hope for his own future.

Squatter’s Rights 

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.

Sandy Penny

A great start to a new series! This fast paced detective novel was certainly a page turner.
