My debut novel from back in 2012 is enjoying new life through Down and Out Books. You can grab it here. They’ve picked up my private detective character, Richard Dean Buckner, and swung the door wide open for me to continue his series. They’ve got their hands on the sequel, Warpath, and will release that in October of this year. Next year, he’s slated to be out there again.
From the book description: “The girl has gone missing. Again. But this time people are trying to kill her. Trying to burn down everything she has touched or left behind. The girl’s surrogate father feels responsible and to assuage his guilt, he hires Richard Dean Buckner, former Saint Ansgar homicide detective turned private eye to ferret her out. Buckner was doing fine as a bare-knuckles detective for the PD until he was rendered “unserviceable” by a hit attempt. Early retirement doesn’t sit well with that type of man, half predator and half savior. He takes the case, and from two ex-boyfriends who ruined their lives for the girl, her rapist dad, drug dealers she burned for thousands, an uncomfortable meeting at the local Incest Survivors group to whoever is setting fire to her life, Buckner is going to need all his guts, instinct and .44 Magnum to finish the job. Because in Saint Ansgar, what doesn’t kill you only makes you wish it did.”
Down and Out have been tremendously supportive. Publisher Eric Campbell loves Warpath. Come October you’ll see why.*
