First in a new series!

Betrayed by his wife and the system, former Denver Police Detective Mark MacFarland dropped out of the system...all the way. But now he has put drinking and homelessness behind him, bought a hot dog stand, and started a new life. He likes nothing better than listening to his language CDs (people should always try to improve themselves, right? And you never know when you might go to France!), giving away free hot dogs to his homeless friends, and chatting with the occasional customer.

Everything is fine until...

Until he is asked by a noted defense lawyer to help prove that his client was wrongly accused of murdering her husband. Suddenly, MacFarland's past catches up with him. Aided by his former partner, Cynthia Pierson, and his longtime homeless friend, Vietnam Vet Rufus Headley, MacFarland discovers the husband's murder is part of a larger web of conspiracy.

About the Author

I've lived in Denver for more than thirty years, but my job as a corporate trainer often kept me away from the city I loved. Finally I got the courage to follow my dreams and stay home and write about a character who has lived inside my mind for several decades: a disgruntled detective who runs a hot dog stand and studies foreign languages (both of which I have often dreamed of doing). Mark MacFarland is my idea of the ultimate hero. Not the kind who can save the world single-handed, but the kind who cares about what he is doing and does his best. He makes mistakes, often because he acts without thinking. Fortunately, he has Cynthia Pierson to do his thinking for him. He just needs to come to his senses and realize that.
