Word has reached us that my fourth novel and the third in the SAM DELAND CRIME NOVEL series, SIDE SLIP, has been accepted for publication. It may be as long as twelve months, hopefully sooner, until it will be available on the market. Lots of formatting and some tedious editing ahead but that comes with the territory. SIDE SLIP now joins SINK RATE (in final editing and due to hit the market in October ’15), ROPE BREAK (February ’16) and CAPTAIN’S CROSS (summer ’16).

Thanks to all my family and friends whose support helps make all this dream come true.

SIDE SLIP Synopsis:

Stuck in paradise and he isn’t very happy about it. Even the beautiful lady detective that gunned down the man trying to kill them both can’t get him to stay. Corporal Sam Deland wants out. Back to work leading his squad of state troopers and home where he can take up the life he had to put on hold. But Sam isn’t the only one wanting him to return. The woman he left behind is waiting for him and so is the Russian Mob. Sam’s past is catching up with him and he doesn’t see it coming, yet. Detective Christie O’Shea, the pretty Florida cop that nursed Sam back to health won’t have the time to miss him when he’s gone. Murder is what she is paid to solve and she has to go after a killer that has sent shock waves deep into the police community around her. A triple play of heart stopping and heart warming suspense, action and life as Sam, his troopers and Christie all find they are in the middle of murders and mobsters. A story that twists and turns through the investigations and the lives of characters you will grow to know, to cheer and to fear. Sharp dialogue, real characters and enough drama, humor and mystery to keep the reader up late not ready to put it down yet. Another thrilling Sam Deland crime novel from the author of SINK RATE and ROPE BREAK.

    • Thanks. It keeps me out of trouble. Not all, but most of it. When the male bovine fecal material impacts the rotating air movement device, I just tell The Child Bride I’m doing research. It’s worked so far.
