Crime Fiction Books

A Crime Fiction Trilogy …

… describes the three Tom Stone stories that feature a wanna-be drug lord who’s trying to shake a larger mob and be his own boss. Dig below the surface with themes of family, foster care, and interracial romance that are woven throughout each story.


After all, detectives have full lives outside of work.
