My writing career began in 2004 with the true crime book, BLOOD TRAIL. In 2009 I began writing fiction. Police thrillers based somewhat on my experiences as a Detective Sergeant in the Homicide/Violent Crime Unit.

As of August 2018 there are six thriller novels in the Detective Jack Murphy series published by Kensington Publishing. A 7th novel, THE DEADLIEST SINS, will be released in October 2018. The 8th and 9th novels will hopefully be published in 2019, with more to come.

My books have been translated and/or sold in many countries and can be obtained as eBook, paperback, and audio books.

I can't rate my own book, but I wanted to point this one out as my maiden journey into writing. I was the police detective that caught this fine fellow. I hope you will enjoy it, but remember, be gentle, it was my first time.

“Murphy’s Law says: If shit rolls downhill, at the top it must be one huge turd. The Mayor was a well-known turd, and would shit all over the chief if it suited his own interests.”
Rick Reed, The Slowest Death

“No. Okay. Here goes,” Liddell said. “A guy leaves his divorce attorney’s office and storms down the street to a bar. He sits down, orders a triple Scotch, slings it back, orders another and slings that back and orders another. “The bartender asks, ‘Hey buddy, why so angry?’ “The man says, ‘Goddamn lawyers! They’re all a bunch of assholes! ’ “A customer at the other end of the bar stands up and says, ‘Hey! I resent that remark!’ “The man asks, ‘Why? You a lawyer?’ “The other customer says, ‘No! I’m an asshole.’” Jack”
Rick Reed, The Highest Stakes
