My first mystery novel, In the Shadows, is free in Kindle format today only on all Amazon websites. I hope you’ll get your copy and tell your friends. It’s the first in a series set in France. The second and third books (Where Secrets Reside and Winter Tears) in the series are already out. Liars’ Games is also sort of part of the series, although it’s set in the U.S.

About In the Shadows:

There is a stranger amongst the residents of the cave-riddled village of Reynier, France. Suspicious, they believe there’s only one reason Maurelle Dupre would be lurking in their small village—she’s a gypsy, a thief. But a former Chicago detective turned mystery author, Dave Martin, who happens to be visiting his French grandmother, isn’t so sure about the beautiful stranger when happenstance causes them to meet. He wonders why she seems so frightened and distrustful. He knows he shouldn’t get involved. The last time he trusted a woman in distress, the consequences resulted in the loss of his detective’s shield and his wife. But, as always, the detective in him can’t seem to leave well enough alone.

However, what Dave couldn’t know is how persuading Maurelle to reveal herself will ultimately unveil something far worse than mere theft.

In the Shadows is a story of trust, belonging, and murder.
