Lies run thicker than blood.

When Blake Salinger went to work that day, everything seemed normal. His life was structured and routine. All he wanted was a little excitement -- he just never expected to be arrested for his own father's murder.

Caught between the lies of corrupt cops and a silver-haired stranger, Blake flees across Los Angeles to learn the truth of his father's mysterious past. The deeper he goes, the bigger the lies become. The only certain thing is that he can't run forever.

The secrets come thick and fast in a new relentless thriller novel. Full of lies and conspiracies, this rocket-paced ride follows a man pitted against his own family, the LAPD and a corrupt government agency.

Clean Kill was previously published as Keeping with Killers and has since undergone developmental edits to bring the reader an enhanced experience. This novel is the first installment of a three-part story, followed by Dead Ties and Last Hunt.

Summoned to take up her estranged father’s post as a medical examiner, surgeon Emily Hartford discovers home is where the bodies are buried in this “intense, riveting mystery” debut (Library Journal)

Recently engaged and deeply ensconced in her third year of surgical residency in Chicago, Emily Hartford gets a shock when she’s called home to Freeport, Michigan, the small town she fled a decade ago after the death of her mother. Her estranged father, the local medical examiner, has had a massive heart attack and Emily is needed urgently to help with his recovery.

Not sure what to expect, Emily races home, blowing the only stoplight at the center of town and getting pulled over by her former high school love, now Sheriff, Nick Larson. At the hospital, she finds her father in near total denial of the seriousness of his condition. He insists that the best thing Emily can do to help him is to take on the autopsy of a Senator’s teen daughter whose sudden, unexplained death has just rocked the sleepy town.

Reluctantly agreeing to help her father and Nick, Emily gets down to work, only to discover that the girl was murdered. The autopsy reminds her of her many hours in the morgue with her father when she was a young teen—a time which inspired her love of medicine. Before she knows it, she’s pulled deeper into the case and closer to her father and to Nick—much to the dismay of her big-city fiancé. When a threat is made to Emily herself, she must race to catch the killer before he strikes again. Expertly written and sharply plotted, The Coroner is a perfect mystery read for fans of Patricia Cornwell and Julia Spencer Fleming.
