His Hand In the Storm: OVER 80,000 DOWNLOADS! Two months on Amazon's Bestseller list



AMAZON BESTSELLER! Colorado Gold MYSTERY AWARD WINNER. Daphne du Maurier Suspense Finalist.

A man copes any way he can after killing his only son.

His team believes he’s calm and Zen. His boss finds him obsessive. Suspects think him gorgeous but dangerous. They’re all right.

Chief Inspector Gray James is sculpting the remembered likeness of his small son when he receives the call – a faceless corpse is found hanging by the choppy river, swirls of snow and sand rolling like tumbleweeds.

Montreal glitters: the cobbled streets slippery with ice, and the mighty St. Lawrence jetting eastward past the city. One by one, someone is killing the founders of a booming medical tech startup – propelling Gray into a downward spiral that shatters his hard-earned peace, that risks his very life, that threatens to force him to care and face what he has shunned all along: his hand in the storm.

From the Colorado Gold Mystery AWARD-WINNING author, comes Kill Me Why? Book 2 in the Inspector Gray series.

Some storms are both inside and out.

Something is brewing in the quaint and peaceful coastal town of Searock – edged between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains near Vancouver. The town of Chief Inspector Gray James’s youth and where it all began – where he had a hand in his son’s death.

But healing has to wait because THE STITCHER is back after a fifteen-year absence. And the victim – lips sutured shut with medical nylon – is found lying spread-eagled in a nearby Body Farm.

With threats launched against Gray’s family, he must solve the case before a storm blasts the village, before his estranged wife takes from him what matters most, before his most guarded secret is finally revealed.

What people are saying about His Hand In the Storm:

5 stars: "This author has my attention and I've pre-ordered the next book. A complicated murder with a number of suspects. The main character carries a burden which is slowly revealed. I couldn't figure out who the murderer was. A few sub-plots which added to the story. I think the book is well-organized and multi-layered characters. Highly recommend and a good read. Loved the little surprise at the very end and I hope it's addressed in the next book!"

5 stars: "Excellent story, clever plot that would have been a great read without the twists that took it even further. I was surprised when I saw how young the author appeared & that this was a first publication, as the quality of this writing would suggest a more mature writer to have had the time to hone their craft to such a high degree.
