              Can a Los Angeles P.I. unravel an enigma wrapped in a mystery in time to stop a barbarous racketeer with a personal vendetta? Newly-minted private eye Ben Malone, a former LAPD homicide detective, wishes he could catch a case just so that he can pay the rent on his office at the ...end of the month. But when a gorgeous and mysterious, high-class call girl shows up at his office and hires him for a bizarre assignment, Malone is quickly reminded of the old idiom, be careful what you wish for. Between his new client's story starting to unravel, being forced to keep information about a murder his client says she witnessed from his best friend and former partner, LAPD Detective Jaime Reyes, and facing the fallout when a savagely cruel mobster linked to his client starts to make the case personal for him, Malone is being pulled in a hundred directions at once. Fortunately for him, he's got a friend in low places in the form of Vasily Dmitriyev, a criminal in his own right, but someone always willing to back Malone in a jam. As Malone, Vasily, and eventually Reyes, team up to cope with the fallout from Malone's battle against the dark forces of the human-trafficking syndicate boss, a new problem arises when Malone's client starts to look more like a murderer than an innocent witness to a murder. The clock is ticking, the body count is rising, the circumstances darken, testing Malone's ability to figure out just who is fair and who is foul. Fair Is Foul and Foul Is Fair is the second novel in the Malone Mystery series, a riveting private investigator series of crime and suspense thrillers. If you like breathtaking action, sarcastic humor, and a hint of romance, then you'll love Larry Darter's edge-of-your-seat story.

              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. But is he? 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.

              A tale of deceit, betrayal, dark choices, and murder that reviewers describe as gripping, full of suspense and thrills, and hard to put down. Inspired by a shocking true story, Come What May, the debut book in the Malone private investigator detective mystery series, is a high-st...akes thrill ride through the gritty underbelly of the City of Angels and a look at the darker side of human nature. Ben Malone is a veteran Los Angeles Police detective with a bright future ahead of him. Or so he thought until he is caught up in a run of bad luck and his life starts falling apart. The worst of it, his unfortunate entanglement in a spate of fatal on-duty shootings at a time when activists are protesting the use of deadly force by police and rioting all over the country. On edge and questioning his judgment, Malone's LAPD superiors speculate that he may be too quick to use deadly force. Relieved from street duty, Malone is sequestered in Robbery-Homicide Division's Cold Case Homicide Section to keep him under wraps while he undergoes department-mandated psychiatric evaluation. His work-related problems compounded by a vindictive ex-wife intent on bleeding him dry financially sends Malone into a spiral of depression that soon has him drinking too much in the attempt to cope. Initially resentful over his reassignment to the cold case section, Malone's attitude starts to change when he and new partner, Detective Jaime Reyes, come across the files of a cold as ice, 23-year-old unsolved murder case. The more they study the case, the more certain they become that the theory pursued by the original investigators was completely wrong. Since the decades-old murder does not fit the unit's criteria for reopening a cold case for active investigation, Malone and Reyes embark on an off-the-books investigation. Predictably, that creates some problems, especially for Malone. It quickly becomes clear that there are powerful forces at work both inside and outside the LAPD determined to keep the

Malone embarks on what he expects to be a routine missing persons gig, a simple bread and butter case for a gumshoe, but things get complicated. After Malone interviews one of the missing girl's close friends, she inexplicably commits suicide. Next, there's a mysterious murder. He uncovers hints of blackmail. Once again, Malone must descend into the seedy underbelly of the City of Angeles in his quest to find the missing young women and get the answers to some very pressing questions, including a few about himself.
