An ancient, cursed statue. Suspicious deaths. A PI determined to find out why someone is willing to kill to hide the truth.

PI Jorja Knight knows firsthand what it’s like to be tormented by lingering questions after the death of a loved one. When the daughter of a former police officer asks Jorja to look into her father’s death, deemed an accident, Jorja is determined to find her the answers she’s looking for. As Jorja digs into the case, she discovers another suspicious death and links to a cursed, missing pre-Columbian artifact.

With rising doubts about the way police handled the men’s deaths, Jorja puts her own relationship with the head of Special Crimes on the line as she reconstructs the dead men’s last movements. But she isn’t the only one bird-dogging their footsteps. As her investigation heats up, Jorja is drawn deep into the heart of Alberta’s badlands. What she finds turns the investigation on its head and throws her into the path of a brazen killer.

New York, 1904. After two years as a coroner’s physician for the city of New York, Daniel O’Halleran is more frustrated than ever. What’s the point when the authorities consistently brush aside his findings for the sake of expediency? So when his fiancée leaves him standing at the altar on their wedding day, he takes it as a sign that it’s time to move on and eagerly accepts an offer to assist the local coroner in the small Long Island village of Patchogue.

Though the coroner advises him life on Long Island is far more subdued than that of the city, Daniel hasn’t been there a month when the pretty librarian, Kathleen Brissedon, asks him to look into a two-year-old murder case that took place in the city. Oddly enough, the case she’s referring to was the first one he ever worked on, and the verdict never sat right with him.

Eager for the chance to investigate it anew, Daniel agrees to look into it in his spare time, but when a fresh murder occurs in his own backyard, he can’t shake his gut feeling that the two cases are somehow connected. Can he discover the link before another life is taken, or will murder shake the peaceful South Shore village once again?

Gary Hollins is a mystery to Debbie Haring. 

She’s seen him snap into action with bullets flying when their private detective assignments turned bad. It blew her mind.

He learned those deadly skills somewhere, and his grumpy-assed attitude, but whenever she broaches the subject, the shutters go up. 

Gary only works when Debbie nags him. He’s content to survive on bad jokes and cheap beer wasting his days away in a West Australian beachside caravan park.

His past is behind him, far away in England, and that’s where he wants it to stay. 

Then Debbie’s world collapses. Her beloved mum’s the first Bell’s Landing local to test positive for the killer COVID virus sweeping the globe. 

She’s in despair, stuck in quarantine with her kids and Gary while husband Matt, her rock, is eight hundred kilometres away on a mine site. So, Gary turns reluctantly to the only thing that might distract her, his sorry tale.

And it all comes out. How he was cut from SAS recruitment just short of graduation, but a fringe-government organisation offered Gary a reprieve. If he could infiltrate a neo-Nazi hate group, they’d see he had a second chance at special forces wings. The impossible choices — ordered to participate in increasingly violent attacks, plagued with doubts about his shady handlers while his pregnant girlfriend tore her hair out over the lies he had to tell at home.

The story’s tearing Gary apart, but it’s all that keeps Debbie sane as her mum’s condition deteriorates.

To help his friend, Gary must face the demons that drove him from his own family.

Hollins & Haring #3, Gunner is a standalone mystery thriller set in Western Australia and London.

I’m from Perth, Western Australia. A lifelong lover of thrillers, romance, whodunnits and historical sagas.

I read for fun – beach reads – stories for a sunny afternoon or an armchair by the fire.

Perhaps it’s a reaction to my decades masquerading as a serious reporter or it might be the influence of four years in the English public school that produced such light entertainment luminaries as P.G. Wodehouse, C.S. Forester, Raymond Chandler and Simon Brett. The teachers wore capes, even mortarboards. Throw in a couple of brooms and it could have been Hogwarts.
