My new release: Three noir thrillers in one book

Lonely Night to Die is a new concept for me.  I don’t have a lot of good ideas, but maybe this is one of them. I think I’ll try it again and see what happens.

I have long believed that the attention span for readers has grown shorter and shorter.

Give me a good story.

Let me read it in one or two sittings.

And let me move on to another book.

As a result, I decided to write three novellas, featuring the same hero, release each of them as an eBook, then package them together as both an eBook and a trade paperback.

It’s done.

It’s live.

It’s on Amazon at a special introductory price of 99 cents.


Lonely Night to Die is a collection of three noir thriller novellas in a single volume. The stories follow the exploits of Roland Sand, the Quiet Assassin, who has broken away from a rogue agency within the CIA.

His missions are those no one else wants to tackle.

The reason is simple.

Sand is expendable.

If he doesn’t return, he won’t be missed.

His name is erased. It’s as though he never existed.


Lovely Night to Die: Why should she fall in love with a man she defended in court?

Does she know he’s a CIA assassin?

Does she know he has orders to kill the President?

Does she know she will die if he fails?

What else doesn’t she know?

Sand can’t afford to fail. He doesn’t want to lose the girl he loves.

But can he save the President and her both?

He has a second to make up his mind.

“Great characters, superb pacing, intriguing storytelling. Recommended for fans of solid action thrillers everywhere. – Review by Enrico Graffiti


Rainy Night to Die: Sand is sent to Ukraine to smuggle out a beautiful lounge jazz singer who, for years, has been smuggling Russian secrets back to MI-6’s home office in Great Britain.

Her contact in London has been compromised.

He is found floating in the Thames River.

Sand must extricate Pauline Bellerose before the Russians trace the stolen secrets back to her and place a noose around her neck.
He has twenty-four hours to find the singer and remove her to safety.

If she is caught, she dies.

It’s a frantic race to a waiting ship off the coast of Ukraine.

Death waits around every bend in the road.

“With numerous clever twists and turns to the story, it will keep you reading until the unexpected surprise at the end.” –Review by Jackie Taylor Zortman


Lonely Night to Die: Sand awakens on a park bench in town he’s never seen before.

How did he get there?

He doesn’t know.

Who is the beautiful girl on the bench beside him?

He doesn’t know.

But she’s quite dead, and he has no idea who killed her.

Or why?

But he’ll find out if it’s the last thing he ever does.

It might well be.


I like the concept.

I don’t have a lot of good ideas, but maybe this is one of them.

At least it is for me.

I think I’ll try it again and see what happens.

Don’t have any stories yet.

But I’m waiting for the right character to come along.

When he does, he’ll tell me what they are.
