    Get ready for a heart-pounding ride through the dark underbelly of America in Patrick H. Moore’s latest thriller, Rogues & Patriots.

    As the second installment in Moore’s gripping trilogy, this book plunges readers into the dangerous world of veteran LA PI Nick Crane. Locked in a life-or-death struggle with the ruthless Miles Amsterdam and his cabal of aristocratic “super patriots,” Crane must navigate a treacherous landscape where power and ideology collide.

    Eight years after he and his team liquidated Frank Constantine, a murderous military shrink and close personal friend of Miles Amsterdam, Nick Crane finds himself abducted, beaten and threatened with rendition to a black site in Egypt if he refuses to join the Principals’ cause, which includes attempting to incite anti-Muslim violence in every major American city. Crane, however, is rescued by his close friend and business partner, Vietnam War vet Bobby Moore, and the war is on.

    Packed with well-drawn characters, relentless action, and razor-sharp narration, Rogues & Patriots is a scintillating sequel that builds on the momentum of its predecessor, 27 Days. As Nick Crane once again emerges as a beacon of resilience and integrity, readers will be drawn deeper into a world where the fate of a nation hangs in the balance.

    Are you ready to uncover the secrets of power and deception where nothing is as it seems, and trust is the ultimate currency?

    Join Nick Crane on a relentless quest for truth in the face of corruption and betrayal. Get your copy of Rogues & Patriots today and start on an adrenaline-fueled journey through a world where the line between hero and villain blurs, and only the brave dare to challenge the status quo.

    About the Author

    Patrick H. Moore is a Los Angeles based Investigator, Sentencing Mitigation Specialist, and crime writer. He has been working in this field since 2003 and has worked in virtually all areas including drug trafficking, sex crimes, crimes of violence, and white-collar fraud.

    “There’s no feeling quite like walking into a prison to consult with a client knowing that he or she is facing many long years behind bars, unless you can thread the needle and convince a skeptical Federal judge to give your guy or gal a second chance. Criminals are not known for putting a high priority on telling the truth; neither are cops and prosecutors.”

    This is no easy task but mastering this job, which combines art, science and intuition, has given Patrick the tools to write realistic crime fiction that depicts the unpredictable and violent world of cops, convicts, prosecutors and defense attorneys.

    In February of 2013, Patrick started All Things Crime Blog, a true crime and crime fiction website, which for several years was one of the most popular crime blogs in the United States. What set All Things Crime Blog apart from the competition was the high quality of the writing from its many excellent contributors, and Patrick’s idiosyncratic, personalized approach to writing about crime. This was not merely reporting the alleged facts; this was interpreting the facts and tying them in to our everyday experience as we attempt to survive in an increasingly hostile and terrifying world.

    Patrick holds a Master’s degree in English Literature from San Francisco State University where he graduated summa cum laude in 1990. Prior to moving to Los Angeles, he was lead vocalist and played rhythm guitar for Crash Carnival, a San Francisco rock ‘n roll band, and experienced the “naked lunch” of life on the streets for more than a decade.

    Patrick’s first crime novel, Cicero’s Dead, was published by U.S. iNDiE Books in November of 2014.

    27 Days, Patrick’s first traditionally published thriller, was published on February 6, 2023 by Down & Out Books. It is the first in a three-part series in which veteran Los Angeles Private Investigator Nick Crane battles a group of aristocratic domestic terrorists known as the “principals.” 27 Days was recently named a finalist in the General Fiction category of the 2023 American Fiction Awards.

    The second book in Patrick’s three-part series is entitled Rogues and Patriots. It will be published by Down & Out Books on April 22, 2024.
