Adultery pays. Murder doesn't. That is P.I. Nate 'Nasty' Jepson's motto, and he normally makes his living snapping pictures of cheating spouses. When a stranger is brutally shot in the passenger seat of his car, he finds himself in the middle of a gang war between battling triads, as well as a suspect in the murder. Nate must step far outside his comfort zone to clear himself and live to catch another cheater.

About the Author:

A retired US Navy Chief Petty Officer, Wright has travelled the world extensively. When not abroad, he spent much of his time in the Pacific Northwest, as well as in Southern California. Always one to wear many hats, he is now a secondary English and Social Studies teacher, a freelance journalist, and author. He is married to his high school sweetheart, who was also the editor of their school literary magazine and was the first person to publish his work. He lives with his wife and youngest son, splitting their time between the Colorado Springs area and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Review:

Nate Jepson (a.k.a. Nasty) is a solid entry into the P.I. hall of fame. He's a rugged and tough [former SEAL] who mistrusts traditional law enforcement and who has few but loyal friends. [...] His manners may be rough, but he's charming enough to earn the trust of pretty motel concierges and pseudo-good guys. In fact, one of the latter will end up in his car with a bag full of drug-laced beef jerky, putting him in the midst of an Asian mafia power-grab that endangers not only his life but the lives of all of his friends [...] The scenery and history of the Pacific Northwest play a nice supporting role. --Publishers Weekly

Bret R. Wright s Nasty floors the accelerator on the first page and doesn t hit the brakes until you close the back cover. Nate Nasty Jepson is a Seattle P.I., as adept at busting cheating spouses as he is locating the perfect burrito. Wright dials up the action as Nasty gets caught in a world of kidnapping, drug-smuggling, and murder, and the only thing flying faster than the bullets are Nasty s wiseass asides. Any fan of crime fiction searching for a propulsive, entertaining read to sate their appetite need only remember one thing: It s time to get Nasty. --Kerry Dunn, author of Joe Peace
