Elijah Conner Pennington is a private investigator specializing in cold cases. His published cases are based on actual events and are chronicled in his first cold case in a book titled COLT ACE, while his second adventure is presented in the author's book titled MOTOR dynasty.
Conner's cases are fast paced, with exotic vehicles rushing through the pages, along with romance, mystery, and fireworks that the author is familiar with during his years in Public Safety and the Marine Corps.
If FLIGHT TO DESTINY, Conner gathers a team of heretofore unknown mercenaries, with the end goal of finding a missing SEAL operative that fought the Russians during the cold war, alongside other American operatives that were assigned the task of discrediting the Russian Spetsnaz operatives trying to influence the political and economic outcome of the Nicaraguan government. Danger confronts Conner and his team at every attempt to locate the missing warrior.
As a combat Marine officer, the author often investigated violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Upon leaving the Marine Corps he served twenty-three years in the Missouri Department of Public Safety, retiring as a deputy director. He holds degrees in Art, Psychology, Criminal Justice Administration, and a master degree in Public Administration from the University of Missouri.
Following his state career, Echols became a private investigator, specializing in cold cases. His first Conner Pennington novel, “Colt Ace”, has won wide acclaim among readers of mystery novels. His second cold case novel, “Motor Dynasty” has met with equal enthusiasm among his readers.
Echols lives in Fort Worth, Texas with his partner and fellow investigator, Ann.
