About this title


Clipped, no-nonsense dialogue, fast-paced prose and tough-guy characters recall classics such as The Maltese Falcon or The Long Goodbye." -- BlueInk Review

Kicking bad guy butt comes with the job as wise-ass detective Eli Quinn investigates a brazen assassination attempt on an Arizona politician.

Quinn takes the case when his friend, lawman Jack Beachum, suspects the sheriff isn't investigating rigorously. Quinn gets help from reporter Samantha Marcos, a good friend who is quickly becoming more than that, and his dog Solo, the world's greatest K-9 private eye.

Together, they uncover a threat far more sinister than the frightening and clever use of drone technology.

"A brisk detective novel sequel that packs a punch." --Kirkus Reviews

From the Author:

Dear Readers: I hope you have as much fun reading my stories as I have writing them. So what can you expect from this one?

DRONE is the second book in the Eli Quinn detective mystery series, and in many ways it's my personal favorite. It jumps right into the action in Chapter 1, and as a reader I like that. It also explores the Jekyll & Hyde potential of drone technology, the good and terrible things they can be used for. I think you'll find it surprisingly, perhaps shockingly, prescient. There's another aspect of the plot ripped straight from current events, but I don't want to spoil the twist.

If you're a fan of Robert B. Parker's Spenser novels, I think you'll really like the wisecracking Eli Quinn. If you enjoy James Patterson thrillers (Alex Cross, anyone?) or Lee Child's Jack Reacher, you'll appreciate the action and suspense that's layered into my mysteries. Most important to me, I hope you find Eli Quinn a likeable character, someone you get to know really well, and enjoy rooting for. Oh, and if you haven't met Solo yet, get ready to fall in love with the world's greatest K-9 detective.

Each Eli Quinn book can be read as a stand-alone, in any order. Dive in wherever you like. Were it me, I'd read them in this order: CLOSURE (book 1), DRONE (book 2), FIRST KILL (book 3), MURDER MOUNTAIN (the short prequel). Some subtle aspects of Quinn's character and his evolving relationships with reporter Samantha Marcos and his best friend, lawman Jack Beachum, are perhaps most fully appreciated by reading them in that order.

There's another Quinn book on the drawing board. But meantime I've diverted my energy to publishing my first thriller, 5 DAYS TO LANDFALL. It's due out Nov. 14, 2016, and is far and away the most action-packed of my books. Kirkus Reviews calls it "a vigorous tale in which a violent, inescapable storm terrorizes everyone, even the villains."
