New Video - Where Did Devin Come From?

I get a lot of questions, so thought I'd just start answering some - here you go...

One of the top two questions I get - just where in the heck did Devin come from?

Black is for Hate (John Devin, PI Book 2) Released

Black Is For Hate - the second novel in the John Devin, PI mystery series has been officially released on all retailers in ebook (Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, Barnes & Noble), and will follow in the next couple of days in paperback.

Nothing shocks in 1930s Los Angeles — except five of the most brutal murders the city has ever seen. Five women killed. A city plagued — until Devin enters a world of brutality even he never imagined. Haunted by the shadow of the most brutal chapter of his own life, Devin races to stop the final kill as he wrestles with his past’s never-fulfilled — dark — black — need — for revenge.

Second John Devin, PI Short Story Published - Bennie

I've also just published the second John Devin, PI short story - "Bennie."

I love short stories because I can visit a little more with some of my favorite characters and this one, Bennie, first appears in "Red Is For Blood" - and turns out to be Devin's newest best friend.


Bennie - A John Devin, PI Short Story…

Devin is on a fresh case to recover money and bootleg booze belonging to Toots, the owner of Devin’s favorite LA speakeasy.

The money and booze found, he gets a little more than he bargains for.

A case within a case, that leads Devin to his new best friend, and the most foreign land in LA — Chinatown.
