Every mouse click leaves an indelible footprint. You really weren’t anonymous those times you browsed adult dating sites. Neil Hartley thought he was, when he met Karin in an internet chat room and fell in love. She’s thirty, beautiful and in a bad marriage too. Only “Karin” is really a morbidly obese internet conman named Duncan Weller. He draws men into his trap and blackmails them. When Weller is brutally murdered, Detective Mike “Bugs” Cameron finds Hartley’s digital footprints on Weller’s hard drive.

Neil Hartley is a pillar of the community. He’s rich and successful, and owns a big home. He’s married to the former Miss North Carolina first runner-up. She’s addicted to prescription medication and the Home Shopping Network. Hartley isn’t the only man having an internet romance with Karin. Darnell Harris is a cab driver who walks, talks, and looks like a Marine, but his high-and-tight haircut and Death Before Dishonor tattoo camouflage a secret past. He was thrown out of the Marine Corps during his first week of boot camp. When Harris almost kills a homeless panhandler with a single punch, Reverend Anthony Armstrong Jeter wants him prosecuted for a hate crime. Darnell Harris takes the pistol that his father used to commit suicide and decides to teach Reverend Jeter a lesson.

Three days after Detective Bugs Cameron’s honeybees swarm and terrorize his neighbors, a drop-dead gorgeous reporter tells him that she’s been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She’s read about bee-sting therapy and wants to be stung, and she wants Bugs Cameron to do it. As Cameron juggles the investigation where Hartley, Harris, and Weller collide at every lead, bee venom isn’t the only chemistry that develops between Bugs and the reporter.

A 65,000 word mystery-suspense / police procedural novel. Originally published as Dead Pen Pals.
