Rick Cantelli P.I. Book IV: Shades of Death
I’m reaching the 62K word mark in Rick Cantelli, P.I. Book IV: Shades of Death. It’s on schedule for late September. Kathryn McCarthy of Aeternum Designs is working on new covers for all the Cantelli series. Her new designs for my Cold Blooded series really made a difference.
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 Jorge Boros Empire also draws out an old card from the deck in the person of Faruk Ezon, a world class assassin with past history with the Madigan/Cantelli team from their old CIA days. With new movies starring Temple Donovan and Rick’s Grandson Jim, coupled with gang and serial rapist problems, Rick and Lo are right back where they belong, locked and loaded. It’s another pulp fiction adventure for my favorite 7th decade private eyes. :)
Hard Case VI: The Killer Inside is also still in new release too. :)
