HOMICIDE IN BLACK & WHITE

Posted: 02 Jun 2014 05:21 AM PDT

Next week I'll resume my series of stories about the death of Houston Police Detective M.A. Billnitzer and the possibility that he was murdered in his office. I began writing these stories to give readers a glimpse of my writing style. There have been more than sixty-five stories and 20,000 visits to the site. I don’t blatantly advertise my books, but I encourage readers who enjoy my writing to consider purchasing them. The one exception is when I release a new book as I am today.

Homicide in Black & Whiteis the first novel in my new Tanner & Thibodaux Action and Adventure Crime Series. It is available today on my website and at bookstores. The Kindle version is also available by following this link, http://www.amazon.com/Homicide-Tanner-Thibodaux-Actioin-Adventure-ebook/dp/B00KKTHJCS/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1401549050&sr=1-1&keywords=homicide+in+black+%26+white.
As an added incentive for you to check it out, my short-story from the book, The Park Place Rangers, titled, The Naked Green Man & Other Colorful Stories, can be obtained FREE on Amazon today through Friday.

Milo Tanner and Calvin Thibodaux are the protagonists in this series. Tanner, a retired Houston police officer, moved to the small Texas town of Success to get away from all the things he’d seen working as a homicide detective. But he met retired Army Delta Force soldier Calvin Thibodaux whose niece had been murdered in the quiet town Tanner wanted to call home. The two men team up to make sure that justice is served, rules be damned!

Here’s a short excerpt from the book. I hope you enjoy it and that you check out Homicide in Black & White as well as my other novels.
Jack Sadosky was not new at dealing with political issues in Fulshear County. He had been the District Attorney for 18 years. During that time, he had faced a wide array of decisions involving prominent citizens and political figures. At times he had become extremely innovative in finding reasons not to prosecute certain cases; those who pulled the strings in Fulshear County had shown their appreciation by returning him to office at each election.
He was so good at walking that line that he also had a reputation as being beyond reproach in his duties as district attorney. That reputation came largely as a result of his ability to re-direct the blame when he chose not to pursue a case. Someone else, past sheriffs, a state agency, or, in some cases, even the victim, was cast in the role of preventing Jack Sadosky from pursuing justice. As a result he had preserved his law and order reputation.
When Sheriff Jackson sat in the chair across from his desk, Sadosky knew they would be talking about the murder of Danielle Parker. It was the only matter being discussed throughout the county. Though rumors had already surfaced regarding Hunter Hansen’s possible involvement, unsolved murders made people uncomfortable until someone was in jail.

Next week - I'll resume the series If the Walls Could Talk.
