I'm thrilled to offer you and my readers the latest Detective Tony Alfano mystery. It's 1933 Chicago, the Century of Progress World's Fair is now in its fourth month, and a starlet is found murdered on the top floor of the Palmer House hotel. Tony is sent to investigate and discovers she's with a Hollywood promotion tour for their latest gangland movie. At the request of the producer, Chicago Mayor Ed Kelly, sends him to Hollywood to be their technical advisor. And the first thing Alfano finds is another body.

In Los Angeles, California, Tony discovers that fantasy can become reality.

Wishing you and yours the happiest of New Years. We've gotten this far, so don't give up, get your shot (when you can), spend time with friends, and most of all take care of yourself. There are great things ahead.


I will be releasing my latest Detective Tony Alfano thriller on February 16, 2021. This will be an ebook for now, with the paperback available sometime in March (I hope). for those that don't know Tony, here is a snippet from he novel:

Detective Anthony Alfano tugged at the hem of his crisply pressed dark grey suit jacket, snugged up his red silk tie, and adjusted the Colt in his shoulder holster. He was tall, snappishly thin. The pinstripes in his suit added the illusion of an inch or two to his height. His face was narrow, with a hard, long jaw, thin mouth, and a fashionably crisp William Powell mustache. The mustache enhanced a sharp, slightly hooked nose (with a perceptible kink on its ridge due to being broken a few times) that anchored his face like a spike driven between his dark grey eyes. Hidden under his grey fedora was a thick head of black hair that was evolving to grey at the temples. If grey were a meal, Tony Alfano was a serious grey serving. After setting the brim of his hat, he lit a cigarette, and strolled north up the west side of State Street. This night the sidewalks were full; the weather, for a Friday night in mid-September, was warm and dry.

I am looking forward to an exciting year - bother personally and professionally. We will get out of the house (once vaccinated) and get back to seeing the world, if there is anything left of it. I fear that it will be a long time before some parts are open again. Professionally, I am looking to publish at least three books this year, possibly four. Great stories are underway that will take you all the corners of the world. To name just a few: Carmel, Cairo, Rome, Montana, Los Angeles, the moon and Mars, London, Chicago, and even Cleveland.

Stay tuned, the road will be bumpy. . . . .

Thank You and A Cover Reveal


I want to thank all of you who downloaded a free copy of one or all of the Sharon O'Mara adventure thrillers. She is the reason I got into this writing gig, and she it still my second favorite gal. I hope that you are enjoying them.

I gave away 10,052 copies - that's right over 10,000 free books.

I'm thrilled and I hope you are one of those that took the time to download the ebook from Amazon. Again thank you very much.

I am also pleased to announce the cover for the next Detective Tony Alfano thriller (see below with the first three covers in the series).

Tony is becoming one of my favorites. It's 1933 - so no TV, no cell phones, limited radio, and certainly no police radio. Chicago is in the middle of the Century of Progress World's Fair - and 200,000 people visit the city on any weekend. It has become a city full of tourists, gangs, gambling, and other forms of corruption. Just the background for an honest Italian cop on an Irish police force.

Kirkus Review is Posted 9-15-20

In today's issue of Kirkus Reviews, their bi-monthly magazine, I'm thrilled that they have selected St. Petersburg White for a review. This is a great honor since they select only about 10% of their monthly reviews for posting in the magazine. This is the third in the Alex Polonia series, the first two, Venice Black and Saigon Red were published by Thomas & Mercer. St. Petersburg White is published by our own publishing company, Windsor Hill Publishing.

It's a great read - enjoy!
