Short Story Anthologies

A teen tells the truth about a crime, then suffers the consequences. (Part II) Fire & Ice YA, 2018. Free ebook here.

When the unidentified body of a man turns up in an alley, LAPD Detective Verity Thrett suspects it’s no accidental death. Much to her annoyance, the case also attracts the attention of a brash new transfer, Detective Finbar McNab, who’ll stop at nothing to get his derailed career back on track. As they spar over the investigation, they zero in on a lurid underground lifestyle that is concealing a long forgotten murder.
Praise from readers:
"Well written, engaging, and fast-paced."
"The quality of the writing really shone through with the characterisation and especially the detectives, who are both are well drawn and quickly established as relatable and sympathetic, if flawed characters."
