You know those friends you haven’t seen in so long? The ones you really miss? And that feeling you get when you finally get to share company again? That’s what I’m feeling right now. We’ve been through some things together, seen some stuff, pulled through some tough times.
I should clarify that I’m talking about my imaginary friends.
Private investigator Jamie Rush, and her partner, Cookie Hinojosa, are back in Port Alene with a new case, and I’m thrilled to be back in their world. Deuce the wonder bulldog is still charming people wherever he goes (usually at the pub, pier, or beach), and Marty is keeping the drinks flowing at Hemingway’s. Erin’s booking business is hopping, and her clients are saltier than the Gulf Coast.
This new case, though? It’s going to change things in Port Alene forever.
It all started simply enough.
A small request from a family friend.
One Deadly Secret.
No Time to Lose.
PI Jamie Rush has her hands full with small-time skip-tracing and surveillance jobs in Port Alene, Texas. The work is steady, though she still struggles to make ends meet. But when her partner, Cookie, brings in a low-paying and potentially time-consuming case, Jamie takes it on out of loyalty.
Cookie’s childhood friend, Renata, needs to find her younger sister, Leah. As Jamie digs into Leah’s past, it becomes clear that the missing woman’s life was shrouded in secrets, the kind that could jeopardize those involved in the case.
To complicate matters, PI Alastair Finn has returned, and he’s willing to reclaim his town by any means necessary. Jamie has never been one to retreat, and Alastair enjoys a good fight. Sparks will fly.
A missing woman. Felonies. Finn’s return. Every twist reminds Jamie that she’s still an outsider in this town. Jamie must prove herself all over again, and the stakes have never been higher.
Pub Day for DEPTHS OF DECEIT is May 31,2022.
