In Tampa, the only thing more crooked than the mob is the police…

Milo Porter leads a happy life in Tampa, Florida. The Iraq war veteran runs routine private investigations by day and coaches powerlifting at night. When Chad Scalzo, the grandson of a rumored mob boss, goes missing, Milo takes the seemingly easy case. After Chad turns up dead, Milo goes from investigator to suspect.

As he seeks to clear his own name, Milo finds himself at the crossroads of two crooked investigations — one by the mob and the other by the police. With the body count climbing, Milo discovers the key to the case in the last known person to see Chad alive.

But can Milo get to her before someone else does?

Suspenseful Thriller – Heavy Hour

By Patrick Brown
Publisher: Peachtree Corners Press
Published: September 2015
ISBN: 978-0986254925
ASIN: B015D9CUDC
Pages: 309
Genre: Thriller, Suspense, Mystery, Action/Adventure

From the author of the suspense thriller, VARIED TRAITS, comes the sequel, HEAVY HOUR!

Four teenagers form a bond during a hot Atlanta summer. Ten years later, a tragic event takes place during a swanky Midtown wedding reception. When the police come up empty in the search for a vicious killer, Salem Reid is summoned to investigate by a stripper whom he has recently saved from a murderous group of thugs. Reid can’t say no to a friend in need, so he puts his business on hold while he plunges into the case.

As Reid looks into the victim’s past, the motivation for the brutal murder and the identity of the predator are slowly revealed. But the killer remains elusive. As the story unfolds, a cast of characters emerges—from a beautiful young widow to a bevy of streetwalkers, from young professionals to a mentally challenged boy—all who assist Salem Reid in his search for the killer.

HEAVY HOUR leads us on a journey into an urban underworld of prostitution, pornography, and sexual deviance that author Patrick Brown describes in graphic detail. Following up from the prequel, VARIED TRAITS, we are rocketed into a world where we might be afraid to venture outside…or stay in, as the case may be.

Crime Mystery/Thriller – Blood on Hampton Beach

Blood on Hampton BeachBlood on Hampton Beach
By Jed Power
Publisher: Dark Jetty Publishing
Published: June 2014
ISBN: 978-0985861759
ASIN: B00KGM0J5S
Pages: 295
Genre: Crime Thriller, Crime Mystery, Mystery, Murder Mystery, Suspense, thriller

There’s something tempting at Hampton Beach, something besides the sea and sand. Money and lots of it. The kind of money that brings greed, violence and murder to anyone it touches.

Just Dan Marlowe’s luck to stumble across the murdered body of Hampton Beach’s premier landlord. Now he has to find something else—her killer—and fast. Before a Hampton police detective, who thinks Dan is behind every crime on the beach, hangs the murder on Dan.

In this, the third novel in the Dan Marlowe series, Dan finds himself facing death from a cast of suspects—a right-wing radio talk show host, a shifty fireworks dealer, two bumbling beach hustlers, a shadowy marijuana syndicate and every other beach low-life the tide can throw up—all of them as crooked as his best friend Shamrock’s shillelagh. And they don’t have any qualms about using Dan for pistol-whipping practice or inviting him to a cookout where he could end up the toasted marshmallow.

There’s one more thing Dan has to watch out for. Something just as dangerous to him as any beach killer and just as deadly.

Himself.

Other Books in the Dan Marlowe/Hampton Beach, NH crime series include:

Cocaine. Dan Marlowe is doing his damnedest to stay away from the stuff. It’s already cost him his family and his business, The High Tide Restaurant & Saloon. Now a bartender at the Tide, Dan’s life is slowly stabilizing. That is until a boat with two dead bodies on board is found wrecked on the jetty at Hampton Beach. The hunt for its missing cargo, 200 pounds of cocaine, is on. Dan is forced into the search and realizes that the drug that stole everything short of his life might be the one thing that can give it all back. He’s not the only one seeking the fortune in white powder. Others, on both sides of the law, are after it too, including a Boston mob boss and his right-hand man; a New Hampshire seacoast drug dealer/informer, his smokin’ hot girlfriend, and his dim-witted muscle; a crooked D.E.A. agent and his junkie sidekick; two New Hampshire State policemen; and an Irish handyman. It’s a violent, back-stabbing race to the end of the rainbow. May the best man win.

Four quarters. It’s not much, but when 13-year-old Kelsey Sweeney gives Dan Marlowe the coins as payment to find his mother’s killer, it’s enough to buy him a ticket to big-time trouble on Hampton Beach. In no time Dan finds himself knocking heads with beach drug dealers, thugs, and shady businessmen—all with something to hide. And they’ll throw anything at Dan, including bombs and bullets, to get him to back off. But Dan can’t back off—he’s got his own demons to conquer—and helping Kelsey is the only way he’s got a shot at winning that battle.
