Police Protection, #10 in the Kate Huntington Mysteries, is now live on all major ebook retailers!!
A story ripped from real-life headlines! A police detective is found in an alley standing over the body of an unarmed African-American boy. Gun in hand and groggy from a concussion, he has no memory of what happened.
To the police department’s I.A. division, it’s a slam-dunk. But various forces push psychotherapist Kate Huntington and her P.I. husband to investigate behind the scenes, and what they find doesn’t add up. Why did the boy’s oldest brother disappear on the same day? And did the third brother, who’s on the autism spectrum and nonverbal, witness something relevant?
For Kate, the case becomes personal as she connects with the grieving mother, whose dead son was the same age as her Billy. Then a series of seemingly unrelated events emerges as a pattern of intentional obstruction of their investigation, and Kate and Skip conclude two things.
Whatever happened in that alley, it was more than just a bad shoot by a stressed-out cop. And while the answers may come from unexpected sources, they had better find them soon… before another life is lost.
WOOHOO!! I am doing my happy dance! 😀

Patches In The Rye, A Marcia Banks and Buddy Mystery #5:
Nothing about her new client is what service dog trainer Marcia Banks expected—from the posh house that says family money to his paranoid preoccupation with his sister’s love life—but when he dangles a thousand dollar retainer under her nose, she can’t resist his request to play private detective.
In between training sessions with her client’s new service dog, Marcia learns the sister’s boyfriend has a sketchy past. He seems to have turned over a new leaf, but as she digs deeper, more disturbing and confusing questions arise. How is a disastrous frat party five years ago linked to blackmail, prostitutes, and murder today? And who is behind the wheel of the black SUV that keeps trying to turn Marcia and her canine companion Buddy into roadkill?
Marcia can’t let it go, not when there are innocents at risk who are depending on her to find the truth. But the deepest, darkest truth is one she wishes she never uncovered.
