They kept to the shadows so no one would know they existed, and preyed on the nameless who no one would miss. Where did they come from, and who was protecting them? In a city that had seen every kind of savagery, they were something new, something more than murderous. And one woman who had thought she had lost everything there was to lose in life would soon find that nothing could possibly prepare her for what would come when she entered their world.
A new Sam Quinton Mystery
Laura Mosby is like a lot of young women, working in a job she doesn’t like, looking for a way out, and doing her best to enjoy her privacy. When she dies a violent death at the hands of an intruder, it’s at first brushed off as a standard homicide. But when Lieutenant Santiago, the supervising detective, comes across evidence linking her death to a local politician, he begins to see the faint threads of a much nastier scheme. Desperate to shield his people from potential harm, he turns to Sam Quinton, full-time gym owner and part-time private investigator, to help solve Laura’s murder and help the police department evade the wrath of City Hall.
Clean Win is the fourth book in the Sam Quinton Mystery series.
Charming characters match the quick and easy reading plot. With any luck, Sam will be back soon.

A Crime Novel
Professor Ronald Green never saw any of it coming. He never expected to meet Diane Brewster, begin an affair with her, or nearly destroy his marriage and family. More than anything, though, he never imagined Diane’s death, or that he would become the main suspect in her murder. Then, just when Green felt his life had become as twisted and insane as possible, he discovered that Fate had at least one more turn in store for him. For Diane’s death had only been one of many, and the killer had several more people in his sights, including, quite possibly, Ron Green himself.

When You Have To Go There
A Crime Novel
Even with her career heading nowhere, Detective Helen Lipscomb wouldn’t give up. Although everyone, from the chief of police on down, wanted her off the force, she forced herself to stick it out, not giving the bastards the satisfaction of seeing her crumble. She’d had one near career-ending fiasco in her life, and couldn’t imagine that another would come her way. Until a new serial killer arrived in town, less than a year after Helen had almost missed nabbing the last one. And this murderer wasn’t targeting random people, helpless females, or any of the meek and innocent. He was targeting the police themselves. And as Helen sees her colleagues falling one by one, she knows it’s only a matter of time until the killer’s attention turns to her.

He is attempting to bargain for a reduced sentence by providing information of his previous killings, but in another state another man, who the original killer has never met, is taking credit for his crimes.
