About the Tom Stone Detective Stories
Follow the story of Detective Tom Stone and his partner Jake Sharpe chasing a wanna-be drug lord, Anthony Angelino, through the streets of Los Angeles as both men bond with friends and fight the mob.
Angelino wants to be his own boss and book reviews have noted that he’s a sympathetic character as an organized crime syndicate trips him up and takes over his life. His girlfriend desperately wants a way out of the lifestyle and becomes the first person in her family to attend college.
You’ll see the development of friendships while touching on themes like inter-racial relationships, foster care, and parenting teenagers. We take a real-life approach and have quirky characters running around Los Angeles.

EXCERPT 1 for BOOK 4: TOM STONE: ONE SHOT, ONE KILL
The equestrian trail ran parallel and he slowed down when he spotted the wreath, flowers, and candles at the exact spot of the death. The crime scene was described so clinically: on the mount and fell toward the freeway. There was more to it. She would have been looking straight ahead and down the trail with her mind on so many other things. Perhaps business or chatting up her daughter’s schoolwork. The bullet struck without warning and she wouldn’t have had any time to react.
He jogged on toward Travel Town. The locomotives and old-fashioned passenger cars had school-age boys and girls climbing in and out of them followed by doting moms and dads. No one at the attraction would have even heard the shot. One bullet fired in hiding held such power to change the course of a family’s life, the business dealings of a company, and even the fate of a nation.
EXCERPT 2 for BOOK 4: TOM STONE: ONE SHOT, ONE KILL
Kilbraide set the papers down and thought that money isn’t always a motive. There was something that Stone and Jake didn’t understand. You’re good and have the talent as a sniper and then you train day in and day out until the shot becomes an extension of yourself. Just like it was in the military with wind whipping dirt and sand in your face. You’re not there because you want to make a shitload of money. You’re there to do a job. Get it done. It’s your mission. You dedicate your life at that moment to bringing down the enemy.
Kilbraide picked up the evidence bag from his desk and inside was the patch. One Shot, One Kill. No Remorse. I Decide. The mindset of a sniper. Why should civilian life be different than the military? He thumbed through the numbers and thought two elite individuals are now gone. But in a city the size of Los Angeles, there were still plenty more.
