In celebration of my new book release, Bloodlines and Barbed Wire: A Tangled Roots Mystery, I’m offering my first book for free in Kindle format. You can get In the Shadows: An Outsiders Mystery on all Amazon websites for free April 9th thru April 13th. In the Shadows is not only my first book, it’s also the first in my Outsiders Mystery series.

Here’s what the book is about:

There is a stranger amongst the residents of the cave-riddled village of Reynier, France. Suspicious, they believe there’s only one reason Maurelle Dupre would be lurking in their small village—she’s a gypsy, a thief. But a former Chicago detective turned mystery author, Dave Martin, who happens to be visiting his French grandmother, isn’t so sure about the beautiful stranger when happenstance causes them to meet. He wonders why she seems so frightened and distrustful. He knows he shouldn’t get involved. The last time he trusted a woman in distress, the consequences resulted in the loss of his detective’s shield and his wife. But, as always, the detective in him can’t seem to leave well enough alone.

However, what Dave couldn’t know is how persuading Maurelle to reveal herself will ultimately unveil something far worse than mere theft.

In the Shadows is a story of trust, belonging, and murder. It’s the first book in a mystery and suspense series. The second book is Where Secrets Reside. The third is Winter Tears. The most recent is The Forgotten Tomb, published in May 2017.

I’m currently planning the next book–book #5–in the series. It’s tentatively titled Train of Thought, and will take some of the main characters from the series on a train trip through Europe. With these lovable characters, nothing is ever easy as they will soon discover–in each city where they stop, someone near them is murdered, and the police soon suspect that one of the travelers is a killer.

Check out my other books when you’re on Amazon. I have eleven novels making up five series and I’m working on books for each of those series.
