A new detective series is here. Just the cast of characters needed for your leisure reading


Pamela Planter, a mental health professional, decided to shift career paths and try out forensics. She opened Forensic Specialists, LLP, and assembled a motley crew to investigate white-collar crime for the federal government in Washington, D.C.
She found herself pursuing a perpetrator who seemed to be one-step ahead of her team and the FBI! What she thought was white-collar fraud became so much more - a missing person, attempted murders, multiple homicides, and more.
What became apparent to Pamela, known to her team as Pip, is that bureaucracies and the people working in them can intentionally and unintentionally slow things down and screw things up, especially when a connection to the White House is discovered. She also realized physical attractions can muddy the waters.
Her team slowly put the pieces together and assumes an ever-increasing role as the week between Christmas and New Year's arrived, when government almost shuts down.
The story takes twists and turns and surprises you all the way to the last page, last line.
Gradual Descent has rich characters - smart, funny, and very human. The exchanges between them makes you feel like you are right there watching.
