Rick Cantelli, P.I. Book IV: Shades of Death

Added Note: Shades of Death, my Rick Cantelli, P.I. thriller was released ahead of schedule by RJ Parker Publishing, Inc. Here's the link:  :)

Rick Cantelli, P.I. Shades of Death

I finished Rick Cantelli, P.I. Book IV: Shades of Death last night. It ended at nearly 97K words, and has many humorous and violent moments in it. RJ Parker Publishing, Inc will be releasing it at the end of this week if all goes well. The cover will be done by Katherine McCarthy at Aeternum Designs. Here’s the final blurb we decided on:

‘In Shades of Death, Rick and Lo try to protect a reality TV star better known for her selfie pictures on Twitter than her acting ability. She’s run afoul of a world class financier disrupting economies in countries, ordering deaths, and owning politicians everywhere. He thinks he’s above any law until he crosses Rick and Lo.

The clash between Cantelli-land and the Jorge Boros Empire draws out an old card from the deck in the person of Faruk Ezon, a world class assassin from the Madigan/Cantelli team’s old CIA days. With movie premiers, gangbangers, serial rapist problems, and a deadly threat from their Sana’a, Yemen embassy shootout, Rick and Lo are right back where they belong, locked and loaded.’

Editing of ‘Shades of Death’ is in full swing. Also my new novel which will be out at the end of November, Cold Blooded Book V: Nightmare in Red, starts today. It will contain another free bonus addition of Nick and Jean in the future. I have a couple of locations to research after the opening scenes which I’ll be doing at the end of September and middle of October involving Cincinnati, Boston, and Salem. After ‘Nightmare in Red’, I will be doing an all new character novel, which may or may not become a series, based on my short story, Dhampir. It will be released I hope in March. It will indeed be another Fall and Winter of fevered writing.  :)
