The title is A Fatal Obsession and the story takes Maggie and McCabe to New York City to hunt down the kidnapper and possible killer of McCabe's beautiful niece Zoe who is a young Off-Broadway actress. Like all my books there's a social issue in the back-story of Damage. The effects on the brain of my villain of repeated concussions like those suffered by professional football players.(less)

On Saturday October 27th I’ll be joining a “Murder of Crime Writers” at the Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor, Maine for the 3rd annual Murder by the Book. (Yes, I know “a Murder” is a term usually used to describe a large group of crows, but what better term to also use for the large of Maine crime writers who’ll be gathering at the Jesup?)  Many of the Crime Writers present, including me,...

James Hayman Thanks Carole,

The book was published by a major publisher, St. Martin's Press under their Minotaur imprint so it is available pretty much everywhere. It was named an IndieNest pick for July which means it was selected as one of the 20 favorite books by indepnedent booksellers who belong to the ABA.

Anyway I hope you enjoy the story. Let me know. Thanks again.

Jim




Carole Sojka I got your book from my local bookstore and I am VERY impressed,both with the quality of the book itself and the fact that it is available at bookstores, not just Amazon. How's it doing? I haven't read it yet but will soon. You've really worked at getting published. Congratulations!
