Mystery series

Cabin Fever Cover
 
You can order a signed copy below.

Cabin Fever is a recommended pick both for crime and mystery readers who enjoyed the prior Seamus McCree story in Bad Policy and for newcomers such as this reviewer, who encounter Seamus here for the first time.

With its combination of social consciousness, political action, intrigue, and family relationships, Cabin Fever will satisfy any mystery or thriller reader.

~ D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Here's what Hank Phillipi Ryan, author of The Other Woman and an Anthony, Agatha and Macavity winner said about Bad Policy:

"What a great story! Wry, witty and completely appealing—as if Robert B. Parker's Spenser moved to Ohio. I love Seamus McCree—a savvy PI who tackles the mysteries of life with heart and brains and humor."

Want to hear me read the first section of Bad Policy? Here's a YouTube video for your enjoyment.
