Overview

When a little girl is found brutally murdered, detectives Hiro Masimoto and Ryan Sullivan are determined, against all odds, to solve the case.

In the midst of the worst heat wave in New York City’s history and with personal and professional pressures mounting, the detectives pursue the mother’s ex-boyfriend and former criminal, Nick DeSantis.

DeSantis, a two-time felon, has skipped town and the detectives struggle to collect enough hard evidence to extradite him before he slips completely out of their grasp.

With a cast of outlaw characters and more twists and turns than a coiled spring, Brooklyn Heat delivers a taut thriller of the highest caliber.

Once you start reading you won’t be able to stop until the heat breaks in Brooklyn.

About the Author

A native New Yorker, D. James Eldon has been writing fiction and poetry for more than 25 years. After barely finishing high school, he chose to drink heavily and skip the college classes his friends were attending to join the Navy (which lasted all of 6 months). Returning to NYC he studied acting while working as a bouncer, then a waiter (possibly the worst waiter ever to have worked in a 3-star restaurant), and finally a bartender. After cheating death more than once, he quit drinking, quit working in bars, and found himself an office gig. Having more clear-headed time on his hands then he knew what to do with - he went back and read all those books he'd skipped in school, falling in love with authors, such as Don DeLillo, Paul Auster, Michael Ondaatje, the poetry of Pablo Neruda, and the short stories of Hemingway and Raymond Carver. Driven to express himself creatively, he began writing short stories and poetry, which he found infinitely more enjoyable and satisfying than acting. He gave up acting and spent his free time writing. After many years of writing and supporting himself in the technology field, he quit working in the corporate world and began writing his first novel. In 2006, he left NYC on a cross-country motorcycle trip. Though originally planning to return to NYC in a few weeks, he instead spent 4 years traveling the west on motorcycle and working odd jobs while continuing to write. In 2008 a collection of his short stories was published in French, under the title, Made In New York by Zanzibar Editions. Late 2009 saw his first novel All The Way Gone published, in both English and French (again, by Zanzibar Editions, under the title Sur Le Fil). He returned to NYC in 2010 and began work on BROOKLYN HEAT, the follow-up to All The Way Gone. In 2015 he returned to Los Angeles where, in 2016, he completed Brooklyn Heat and began work on the third novel in the Brooklyn Homicide Series. His writing has been described as dark, funny, twisted, sparse, unconventional, character-driven pieces with crisp, realistic dialogue. Check out his poetry blog at www.disposablepoetry.com
