I am excited to announce the publication of my new Kindle ebook, THE GREEN PEARL CAPER. This novel is the first in a series of Damien Dickens mysteries and is set in Atlantic City in the summer of 1979. The story begins with the following Prologue:
I killed Celine. A couple of teenagers found her body last Sunday morning, half-hidden under the Boardwalk, a single bullet hole through her chest. The bullet came from my Smith & Wesson 29, the gun found on the beach not far from where Celine lay.It wasn’t my finger that pulled the trigger. I wasn’t there when she died. Even so, I killed her. She came to me for help; I had bailed her out of a tight spot in the past, and she trusted me. But, this time, I let her down. I didn’t believe she was really in danger. I screwed up, and Celine paid the price. She was murdered, and it’s my fault.Celine walked into my office on July 16, 1979. Less than one week later, she was dead.
