BOOK #9 in the Detective Jack Murphy Thriller series.
Release date: February 11, 2020
In rural Indiana, the underground mines that once held coal and iron ore have become killing grounds. In two counties, five corpses have been discovered. Their deaths appear accidental, from drowning or suffocating. But local authorities have uncovered evidence suggesting they’ve all been murdered.
Assigned to the case as Federal Agents, Detectives Jack Murphy and Liddell Blanchard take charge of the investigation. As Jack digs deep into the case, he discovers the victims have checkered pasts. But no matter who believes the killings are justified, someone still has to pay for the crime…

Back then I ‘published’ by leaving 20 or 30 copies on tables and desks around the police station. Readers would make copies and send them to other law enforcement agencies such as the FBI Academy and the U.S. Secret Service Academy. I was hooked. But it wasn’t until I caught a serial killer that my writing career took off.
I co-wrote BLOOD TRAIL, a true crime book, and wanted to continue writing–but not true crime. I waited three years to have the chance to write fiction and that was the beginning of the Jack Murphy thrillers.
