              Combining a gorgeous socialite turned high class escort, a dark mystery, a murder or three, a wise-cracking private investigator, and a transnational organized crime consortium is a recipe for a deadly mix ... When a drop-dead gorgeous socialite with a wad of cash and a sordid ta...le walks into L.A. private investigator Malone's office, he finds himself unable to refuse - despite his best efforts. Malone does what any self-respecting private investigator with a healthy appreciation for the fairer sex and rent to pay would do. He takes the case. But soon, he realizes he may have bitten off more than he can chew when he attracts some powerful enemies. As loyalties get tested and a shocking twist revealed, Malone and his client Evania find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into an elaborate and deadly scheme that will alter the course of their lives forever. As the body count rises, all signs point to the involvement of a transnational organized crime consortium, the Russian mafia. It becomes increasingly clear to Malone that there's far more at stake than his client's stated desire for protecting her privacy. And then the stakes rise too and hit a little too close to home in the romance department for Malone when his love interest, Sara Bernstein, becomes a kidnapping victim at the hands of violent gangsters. Malone must turn to both the FBI and a shady underworld character for help. The clock is ticking. Lives are on the line. Can Malone stop this developing runaway train of death and destruction? Can he untangle the web of criminal wrongdoing in time to save Sara? Or will he lose her and maybe his own life in the bargain? Fair is Foul and Foul Is Fair, is the second novel in the Malone private investigator series of crime and suspense thrillers. You may enjoy reading it as a standalone, since you can read and enjoy the series in any order. But why stop there? Instead, why not binge-read the entire totally gripping, action-packed Malone series? Come What May Fair Is F

A search for the estranged husband of a rich young thing from Boston seeking reconciliation leads L. A. private detective Ben Malone... south of the border to the exotic locales of the Mexican Riviera and into an entanglement with a trio of ruthless grifters who will stop at nothing including murder to protect their confidence scheme.

There was still snow on the peaks of the San Gabriel Mountains, but the Hollywood Hills were green, and the jacaranda trees were blooming in Beverly Hills. So begins Foul Play, the sixth novel in the private investigator series of crime and suspense thrillers featuring Los Angeles private eye Ben Malone. Business is a little slow, and Malone is feeling restless until L. A. attorney Liz Harper calls with a job: a young, beautiful, and desperate woman wants Malone to find her estranged husband.Malone sets out on his search, almost immediately discovering the man's whereabouts. But that only propels him into a series of bewildering events and a web of fraud, deceit, and murder. Foul Play is perfect for hard-boiled private detective novel fans of authors like Robert B. Parker, Raymond Chandler, and Ace Atkins.

              A troubled sixteen-year-old girl from a dysfunctional family. The dark world of drugs, pimps, and teenage prostitution. A private investigator determined to make a difference. On the surface, except for a strict, ill-tempered step-father, Bridgette Carpenter seems to have everyth...ing a teenage girl could want. She has a family, nice clothes and lives in a home in a quiet middle-class LA neighborhood. But, if everything is so right, why does everything seem so wrong? Malone finds out when he hires on to go after a runaway girl. Unfortunately, by the time Malone picks up her trail, Bridgette has already traveled to a place that seems a million miles away from her suburban home in Echo Park. Now she is caught up in the dark world of drugs, pimps, and sexual exploitation--a kind of hell on earth inhabited by people who care only about making a fast buck and savoring forbidden pleasures. Can Malone find Bridgette in time before she falls victim to appalling, unspeakable acts that will steal what's left of her childhood and perhaps her very life?

              The Rick Bishop private investigator series continues when a local attorney hires Bishop to find her missing friend and then insists on tagging along to help with his investigation. The missing friend has a sordid past. Her mob-connected ex-father-in-law wants to find her just as... badly for about two million good reasons. When Honolulu attorney Nicole Hersey hires Bishop to help her find her best friend Diane Clark, she insists on accompanying him in the search. In a financial bind, he agrees. Rick and Nicole follow her friend's trail to a small town on the North Shore, only to learn from the locals that Diane died there of heart failure. That literal dead end should have closed the investigation, but Bishop notices someone is tailing them. And, later, when the pair interviews the doctor who pronounced Diane dead, Rick's suspicions Diane isn't dead at all grow. After confronting the man following them, Clifford Shepard, he informs Bishop he is an IRS special agent, also looking for Diane Clark because she had come into two million dollars recently but hasn't paid the taxes owed. Once Rick uncovers more evidence that Diane Clark may have faked her death, he ends up in a cemetery in the middle of the night with his two closest friends Joe Rose and Koko Mahelona, intent on digging up Clark's casket. But just as they unearth the casket, three east coast mobsters from the mainland, also searching for Diane Clark, ambush them. When Bishop's case takes a deadly turn, will the penurious PI find Diane Clark and her money before hitting his own dead end? Dead End is the second book in the Rick Bishop series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

              Someone was definitely feeling stabby when they plunged a steak knife into the chest of one of Tinseltown's brightest stars... Not once, but four times--leaving the starlet's beautiful face frozen in the last moment of a violent death, lips slightly parted, after her last breath ...escaped... But who murdered Holly Sutherland? LAPD murder cops are sure Sutherland's estranged husband, bad-boy actor Zack Sinclair, stabbed her to death--so sure, they arrested and charged him--saying Sinclair had the means, opportunity, and definitely a motive. As Sutherland's lone heir, he's in line to inherit her multi-million dollar estate, and he's desperate for money. Sinclair hasn't made a picture in years. He's broke and owes his bookie a quarter-million dollar gambling debt. The situation looks bleak for Zack Sinclair, whose appetites for booze, gambling, and extramarital sex are as out-sized as his ego. But his attorney, Liz Harper, a top LA criminal defense lawyer, says not so fast. Convinced her client didn't do it, she hires Malone to find out who did. Malone, a former LAPD homicide detective turned private investigator, is skeptical. He isn't interested in helping another famous, and guilty Hollywood celebrity beat a murder rap. But he can't say no to Liz Harper, so he reluctantly takes the case. Malone searches for the truth, but soon ends up with more questions than answers in what turns into the most baffling of murder mysteries. With each step, each new clue uncovered, he unravels more startling facts that lead him to one conclusion: Zack Sinclair might be innocent, the victim of an elaborate frame job. As he probes deeper into the sinister underbelly beneath Hollywood's facade of glitz and glamour looking for the truth, Malone touches a nerve, putting himself in the crosshairs of the boss of a dangerous organized crime syndicate determined to shut down his investigation. He faces his greatest challenge, and the clock is running out for Zack Sinclair. Cold Comfort is a gri
