The Novel

A Body in a Bathhouse

Nearly bankrupt, private investigator Mitch O’Reilly divides his time accepting any investigation gig that comes his way, half-heartedly running his Eye Spy Supply shop in a forgotten Los Angeles strip mall and hooking up with anonymous men he meets online.

Two tours in Afghanistan have left Mitch a broken man who’s lost nearly all hope of getting back the fulfilling life he once had. But that may change when he gets his big break. A beloved comedy scriptwriter is murdered at a men’s bathhouse, and Mitch is hired to prove the innocence of the club custodian. In addition, club manager, Trent Nakos, has Mitch rethinking his belief that there should be no emotional entanglements associated with sex.

While Mitch investigates the bathhouse murder, he learns there’s more to investigate than just a dead body. He must choose between continuing a case that could finally put him on the map, or drop the case to protect the ones he loves.

Kindle preorders begin January 28, 2019.
