Overview

Award-winning literary criminologist R. Barri Flowers’ first eBook mystery.


A cross between Body Heat and Mike Hammer, Dead in the Rose City is a taut, hard-boiled detective novel where nothing is quite what it seems. Dean Jeremy Drake, nicknamed D.J., is a Jamaican-Italian private investigator and ex-homicide detective for the Portland Police Bureau. He is six-five, hip, tough, armed with a .40 caliber Glock, and courts danger and romance with equal abandon. These qualities are put to the test when Drake is framed for murder in the midst of two seemingly unrelated cases. The more he investigates, the more he realizes they are intricately and dangerously connected. It literally becomes a life and death issue as Drake has to use all his detective skills, and then some, to fit all the pieces together in a deadly, high stakes whodunit and why.

    A well written and entertaining hardboiled mystery set in Portla

    A well written and entertaining hardboiled mystery set in Portland, Oregon. A PI gets over his head when he is framd for murder while working a case. His attraction to a beautiful neighbor makes for a nice distraction, but danger seems to be at every turn, making this a real page turner. Also recommend the author's mysteries, MURDER IN MAUI, MURDER IN HONOLULU, and KILLER IN THE WOODS.
