A 509 CRIME STORY
Book 1 of 4
A financial blogger’s death. A detective’s shameful secret. Murder binds them together.
A young man is found dead at the bottom of his stairs.
Could it simply have been an accident or was it something more sinister?
That’s the question Major Crimes Detective Quinn Delaney must answer. Along with his partner, Detective Marci Burkett, Quinn soon discovers that there are unseen layers when it comes to this case.
Unfortunately, someone’s meddling in the investigation—a friend of the deceased hoping to help. He’s sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong, causing the wrong people to take notice, and creating new problems for the detectives.
Secrets, lies, and double crosses will be exposed as they hunt for the truth.
But Quinn has his own secret he’s hiding from both his partner and the department—one which could derail his career.
Can he find the murderer while keeping his secret intact?
