GET MY BOOK

Mario DeLuca wanted to be a police officer for as long as he could remember. His first beat was the New Orleans French Quarter, on foot. He met business owners and learned street scams from the best con-artist.

Mario befriended Lucinda Jones who picked up a nick name of Voodoo Lucy later in the True Blue Detective Series. The first day she met Mario she had something to offer the undercover cop.

She soon found herself looking down the barrel of a gun by a local thug that liked beating on woman. Lucy left Tupelo Mississippi with her mother Wanda to escape an abusive father who beat on her mother sometimes just because it was a Tuesday—he didn’t need a reason.

It was risky for Lucy to take on an abusive woman beater drug dealer but that was Lucy. With her new found police officer friend they set up their own con to put this thug behind bars.

This story is a prequel, taking place immediately before the events in the first book of the, True Blue Detective series.

This story is filled with action, drama, mystery, relationships, and crime. It’s a front-row seat to see New Orleans from a cop’s perspective: cruising the streets, dealing with injustice, while also visiting local businesses to interact with the interesting people in this unique, historic city.

FIVE KNIVES welds the intensity of Jack Bauer’s “24” to the scorching heat of THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET’S NEST. 

“The author is a great talent.” — Aaron C. Brown, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer 

When a man plummets to his death from an apartment tower, Will Finch’s shock soon becomes a nightmare. As he studies the open windows above the corpse, Finch notices a lamp blinking erratically behind a drawn curtain on the eleventh floor. 

When he investigates the distress signal, Finch discovers a woman handcuffed to a bedpost. Over the following week, he uncovers a conspiracy that ties the murder to a series of bombshells. The victim’s bankruptcy. A global stock fraud. A murder spree that began in Baghdad and is now haunting the citizens of San Francisco. Is this the work of a serial killer, a copycat — or both?  

Five Knives is the prequel thriller in the Will Finch crime series — a novel that opens on the first day of Will Finch’s journalism career. Everything that Finch learns about crime reporting begins with Five Knives.
