The reviews and feedback that I’ve been getting on my new book “Stolen Daughter” have been great so far! I wanted to thank everyone for all their support to date.
I also wanted to post about the book one last time as one sharp reader reminded me that I launched the book at about the worst time possible. She told me that I should have been more strategic and delayed the release, since it was the end of summer, school was starting back, and people were too busy to be buying a book.
I’ll admit I never even considered the timing. Hahaha. I also should probably hire her to handle my marketing. 🙂
At any rate, if you haven’t picked up the book yet (or don’t even remember reading the first post/email about the novel), here’s what the book is about:
“Stolen Daughter” is a fast-paced, action-packed private investigator book, about a man named Dolan, who used to serve as a distinguished detective in the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
Unfortunately for Dolan, he came home early one day and caught a man in bed with his wife. Dolan, being a former Army Ranger and long-time boxer, didn’t react well to that situation. He beat the man about half to death and in the process, lost his job, his pension, and (worst of all) even custody of his daughter.
Now, he’s moved from Nashville to Knoxville, and he’s trying to get his new private investigator firm off the ground. This is proving far more difficult than he expected because he lacks any contacts in Knoxville and spent his life savings trying (unsuccessfully) to win back custody of his daughter.
This is all bad enough, but things turn worse for him when the case of a missing seventeen-year-old girl, who’s likely been abducted, falls in his lap.
The local cops in the girl’s hometown have already given up on the case and Dolan’s her only chance. But for Dolan, money’s tight. And the aunt of the missing girl is dangerously beautiful. Perhaps worst of all, the missing seventeen-year-old girl unfortunately looks like his own daughter, who at sixteen is only one year younger.
Dolan finds himself drawn deeper-and-deeper into the case. Learning of where she’s been taken, he races to the secluded mountains of North Carolina to try to save the girl. But he soon realizes he’s in over his head. There’s a dirty cop involved, and that man is backed up by the mob.
Dolan is up against an organized criminal element that stretches all the way to Las Vegas and they’ve put a hit out on him.
Dolan, decorated Army Ranger or not, is about to be in the fight of his life.
The book is available on Amazon and is only $2.99 for the Kindle edition.
