Detective Danny Acuff arrives again in book, ‘Gravel Road’

Hey guys!

As promised, the new book has been released. 🙂

The book is called “Gravel Road” and it’s a follow-up book to “Take Down.” For those who don’t know, “Take Down” introduced readers to Detective Danny Acuff. “Gravel Road” is Book 2 of that series.

Here’s the book description:

Detective Danny Acuff is back in the saddle as an investigator, but now he’s in a bigger department with much higher stakes. MUCH higher stakes.

He’s also got a new partner, and she’s a bombshell. But she’s got sharp elbows. And there’s a case that just might be the last case Danny ever investigates.

You just never know where the gravel road will lead. Danny is in for the ride of his life.

Anyway, hope you enjoy, and if you haven’t read the first Detective Danny Acuff book (“Take Down”), click on the pic at right to be directed to it.

Thanks for all the support, guys!

Semper Fidelis,

Stan R. Mitchell

Detective Danny Acuff 5 released!

Hey guys!

Hope everyone is having a great start to their weekend! Just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve finished Detective Danny Acuff 5 and it’s now available for purchase.

Detective Danny Acuff 5 UnflattenedI’ve had two people already read Danny Acuff 5 and tell me it’s the best one yet. It’s faster paced and there’s more action in it than previous editions (can you say multi-chapter, hand-to-hand fight scene between Danny and four guys?!).

I hate that I got off schedule and had such a gap between the release of Danny Acuff 4 and 5. The writing of Nick Woods 4 just proved more difficult and time consuming than I expected.

Regardless, I’m wanting to stay more on track with the remainder of the Danny Acuff series. I love writing them and I enjoy writing about my local area (though the town is invented).

Detective Danny Acuff 1-3I also recently began offering the first three Danny Acuff books for free (electronic version, obviously) for new subscribers to my mailing list. SOOOO, if you haven’t jumped on the Danny Acuff train and would like to, simply send me an email at the following address. I’ll send you the electronic file and get you well onto your way.

That’s it from here! Thanks, as always, for all the shares on Facebook and the reviews that everyone has placed on Amazon and Goodreads!

Hope you enjoy!

Keep the faith,

Stan R. Mitchell
