“Legendary crime writer Joseph Wambaugh:
“Death On A Dark Street" is a suspenseful, authentic, and well-researched manhunt for a serial killer. It introduces rookie homicide detective Jaye Peoria, a tough but tender young woman obsessed with proving herself and snaring an elusive killer. It's a good book.”

Fred Dickey Death On A Dark Street 5 Star Review on Amazon:

"Warning! Don’t start this book if you have a busy schedule. You will not want to put it down! Very well written with an excellent idea of what it’s like to be searching for a killer in the life of a detective. Loved the San Diego references. Characters are well drawn out and hopefully they will be seen again in a sequel."
