Searching for the Jamaican King- In the heat of the summer, 1985, a Maryland suburban Police Department had a mess on their hands: eleven people murdered all within a twenty-mile radius, and all with the same gun. Is this the beginning of a drug war? Or was it something far more sinister? The detectives are using all their resources to find out.
Trying to stay one step ahead of them is Detective DeMarco Manning, a man caught between two worlds in which he is both the law and the dispenser of both death, and evil. Bought and owned by his addictions, he becomes an angel of death for two heavyweight drug dealers-one of which was just coming into power and other who was on the way out. How much is DeMarco willing to sacrifice to save his own skin? And how much death can he deal out before making a fateful mistake, one that leads the detectives straight to his door?
A Touch of Justice- First responders whether they be EMTís, Firemen or Police Officers constantly wrestle with the thought of if they could have done more for the victims that they treated and alleviate their pain and suffering. Invariably the answer seems to always be, yes, as they wish they could have done more.
In this story, during an armed robbery, Detective Greg Haller is seriously wounded by the robbers while trying to protect the public and left for dead. His miraculous recovery from his wounds comes with an added gift of- a healing touch. After his recovery, he and his fellow detectives pursue these serial murderous armed robbers that were responsible for him almost losing his life.
