Post Pattern (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: After a football star is shot at on a California freeway, he approaches Burnside, a former college football player who has become a successful private investigator. As Burnside unravels a complex series of baffling leads, the body count piles up. He encounters beautiful girls, wayward athletes and overworked cops on his way to cracking a case that no one else wants to touch. And Burnside is also forced to confront a betrayal from his past that hovers beneath the surface. Set against the sun drenched backdrop of a hot Los Angeles summer, Post Pattern provides readers with a taut, engaging mystery. The novel delivers a smart, sexy plot with crackling dialogue and fascinating characters.
