Just letting you know that the third Brandon Blake, PORT CITY CROSSFIRE, has just been published as an e-book, with the print edition to follow shortly.
This one takes the young rookie cop from the streets of Portland, Maine, to an inner torment that he’s never before experienced. This one is about a police shooting and Blake is the shooter (Might as well cut to the chase here). WIth his past (PORT CITY SHAKEDOWN and PORT CITY BLACK AND WHITE) run-ins with criminals and authority, Brandon is set up to take the fall for this one.
Suspended, left alone on his aging cabin cruiser, Bay Witch, he looks for a way to occupy his guilt-racked mind, and plunges into a case further down the Maine coast that may finish, not only his career, but his life.
This is a story about secrets, and the cost of keeping them. I liked writing it, and think I learned a lot about Brandon Blake that two novels hadn’t yet taught me. Sometimes characters just keep growing the more you peel the layers back. Brandon and I were both peeling layers back in an effort to get to the truth about people. We found that what lies underneath isn’t always pretty.
