2017 SHAMUS Award Nomination
Second year in a row one of my novels has been nominated for the SHAMUS Award for BEST ORIGINAL PRIVATE EYE PAPERBACK NOVEL. The prestigious SHAMUS Awards are presented by the Private Eye Writers of America to recognize oustanding achievement in private eye fiction. It is recognition by my peers, by the top professionals in the field. I did not win the award last year and may not win it this year, but being in the top five - two years in a row - is a little unreal.
I congratulate all the nominees in all the categories who show private eye fiction is a vibrant, evolving genre.
HOLD ME, BABE is the book nominated
A murder case & a missing songwriter case.
When a young, alluring, doe-eyed woman
with auburn hair steps into Lucien's life,
trouble soon follows - gunplay, mayhem,
murder, lust, maybe even love as Lucien
learns why the song's original title was
Hold Me, Babe.

NEW LaStanza Novel
Go to a Caribbean Island with a gorgeous, flirtatious blond FBI agent posing as your wife and recover le Cerise — the largest red diamond in the world, stolen by Nazis during World War II.
Why LaStanza? Why a private eye? The FBI has failed, so has the Sureté and Interpol. They believe only LaStanza can identify the suspected thief. He solved the murder of her father a few years back. It's the Electric Daughter, who had a crush on LaStanza. What could go wron?
LaStanza says no until he learns le Cerise belongs to his wife's father. It's now a family matter and LaStanza can't say no. He'll regret this.
