Book 1 – Two Dead and Counting…

Barne & Noble

Frederick Hernandez thought he had opened his eyes, but it was still pitch black. He tried to lift his arm, but he couldn’t raise a single limb. He tried to speak, but nothing came out. Gradually, he realized he was moving. Here’s your dead guy, a man announced as the moving sensation ceased. Stick him in the vault, another man said. I’ve got two autopsies to finish before I can start that one. Terror ricocheted through Frederick s body like a high-voltage electrical shock, causing his heart to jolt and then to flatline.

Frederick Hernandez was the second patient to die but, unfortunately, not the last. When detective Jack Kendall’s best friend dies, he makes a graveside vow to get to the bottom of it. Christine, his best friend’s widow, hires Cedric Johnson to file a wrongful death suit, but Jack is far too impatient to leave the investigative work up to him, and, apparently, he’s not the only one.

It seems Stacy Young, a legal assistant in Cedric Johnson’s office, has been suspicious of Cedric for some time. When her boss, Joshua Royce, won’t take her suspicions seriously, she tells Jack about a mysterious courier who comes in after hours to exchange messages with Cedric in what she suspects is an insurance scam that is earning them a sizable fortune. Jack isn’t convinced, but he agrees to look over the information she offers to deliver the next day, only she goes missing, and he has clearly become a target.

As a master of disguise, Jack trades on the knowledge that reality isn’t always what it seems, but the clues in this case lead to a scheme that is so complex, it keeps him guessing right till the end.

Detective Jack Kendall and his assistant, Stacy Young, receive a disturbing call that opens the door to a missing persons case that has tugged at the heartstrings of Mississippi and the entire nation. Now Jack and Stacy hold the key to the most shocking, complex, and emotional case of their careers, and they are all in!

As the only heir of Joan Chandler, Tyler Chandler stands to inherit everything a man could want, including Pearl River Mansion—a 450-acre, post-Civil War estate that sits at the end of one of the many fingers of the Pearl River. Tyler’s mother makes a game out of controlling people by trading on her wealth, but Tyler refuses her money—which always comes with strings—and struggles to make it on his own, trading instead on his intelligence and exceptional good looks. But he’s not as good at the game as she is and finds himself trapped in a marriage that infuriates his mother.

It is a destructive battle of wills, and just when Tyler believes he’s winning, fat intercedes… And for the second time in her life, Joan finds a purpose for the alligators that have kept her well away from the water’s edge—and the stakes keep rising.

Book 3 (Coming Soon) – Operation Commander in Chief

In an era of unpresented disrespect towards the United States, Mississippi President, Hunter Logan, fights to stop the rising number of domestic terrorist attacks. Stalwart in his determination, nothing rattles him until treason strikes at the very heart of his family. Suddenly, the President isn’t sure whom he can trust.

Capitalizing on perceived vulnerability, pressure intensifies, even from those he had counted on as allies. President Logan turns to his rich Southern connections, who are as diverse and perverse as they are powerful, and he means to use them to conduct his own investigation. In Washington, betrayal is expected, but this has become personal, and he’ll be damned if he’ll allow anyone to destroy his legacy.

Detective Jack Kendall receives a call to duty from the President of the United States, and he has no choice but to accept. As the investigation unfolds, the stakes rise to staggering heights. Millions of lives are at risk, including that of the President, who has already survived two assassination attempts.

When Jack and his assistant, Stacy Young, uncover an international web of deception, they face the ultimate penalty. With nothing left to lose, they fight for freedom, country, and good old Southern values, which they are determined to champion, even in the face of death…

…which turns out to be infinitely more horrifying than they expected.
