Coming Soon – The Deadwood Murders – Low Pre-Order Price!
A mutilated conventioneer with raw deadwood in his throat.
A trail of bodies with the same grim signature.
Gay men brutally tortured and killed.
Homicide Detective Sgt. Kendall Parker isn’t sure he wants to return to the police force. His last case ended with the capture of the man who murdered a male stripper, but his homicide partner was killed in the process. Still on leave, he’s gotten sober, quit smoking, and is rebuilding his life alone.
The arrival of a serial killer cuts short Parker’s choice. The new homicide commander summons him to police headquarters with a personal plea from the mayor: go undercover with the FBI to flush out a depraved killer. With Atlanta’s gay community under siege, Parker agrees to prowl gay bars in the city as bait to lure the killer.
Awarding-winning, Investigative reporter Calvin Slade is also on the trail of the killer. Aided by a young, hotshot reporter, he soon unearths a shocking clue law enforcement has kept from the public. But chasing the hottest story of his career may put him directly in the path of a vicious killer.
PRETTY BOY DEAD (a Kendall Parker Mystery – Book 1)
*** Lambda Literary Awards Finalist – Best Gay Mystery ***
A murdered male stripper.
A missing go-go dancer.
When the mangled body of a young gay man is discovered in a popular Atlanta park, advocacy groups converge on City Hall demanding justice. Media are quick to pin the brutal homicide on a drug-addicted, homeless teen. Atlanta Detective Sgt. Kendall Parker isn’t so convinced, even after the suspect assaults his homicide partner with a deadly weapon. But the investigation takes a disastrous turn, and a suspect in custody ends up dead.
It becomes a race against time for the veteran detective to solve the apparent gay-bashing, but when a tenacious reporter threatens to expose a police cover-up, Parker is forced to make an impossible choice: stand firm for justice, or betray the brotherhood in blue.
The odds against him, Parker will need to rely on his keen instinct and experience as a streetwise cop to catch a brutal killer. Yet success often comes at a price, and for Parker, it may mean having to reveal his most closely guarded secret.
