On a cold January morning, Reece Culver is inside his new P.I. office ruminating about his father's recent death when he gets a visit from an interesting woman who is desperate for his help in solving the mystery of her mother's disappearance. Intrigued by Crystal's story he agrees to help, but not long after it becomes obvious that someone doesn't want him snooping where he doesn't belong.
Reece heads north to his client’s childhood home, but things don’t go according to plan. In the pitch-black interior of the abandoned home he is blindsided, beaten, and left for dead. Several days later, after regaining his bearings, he sits in the interrogation room of a police station charged with a murder he’s pretty sure he didn't commit.
When Reece remembers the face of policemen that he met years earlier he works it to his advantage and is later released on bail. He dives back into his missing person's case with increased vigor and figures out that the case he's investigating and an unsolved murder from his past might be linked. The only problem is that as he gets closer to the truth the stakes increase and it becomes apparent that the murderer is tracking his every move.
When it seems like he’s got it all figured out he learns that the FBI plans to offer up immunity to this person he knows is responsible for the crime in exchange for testimony against a notorious mob boss. Will Reece Culver solve the mystery of the missing person’s whereabouts? Will he survive long enough to catch the killer before the FBI steps in with their offer?

This next book is currently in the Editing phase as I build the plot and work at making this book better than anything I've previously written. I am taking my time with this one, so stay tuned for more updates on its progress. Back in 2018, I used the basis of this story as the template for a Serial Fiction story I wrote for Radish Fiction. It ran until the Spring of 2019 with close to 7,000 views. That story was named INTRUSION.
In the coming months, I hope to finish this new book and come up with a new name that fits the finished novel. Then I'll hire a professional editor, design the cover, and publish book number 3.
I've also started work on book number 4 which will continue this brand new series staring Darian Locke.
