Book Details

Jackson Douglas is only an associate at MTR Investigative Services, and that for all of three weeks. But when a potential client shows up late one Friday, he offers to help.

Reggie Cameron is weeks away from opening a new restaurant, and his ex-wife’s sister, Leila, wants in on the action. Unless Reggie makes her a partner, she plans to tell the world that he stole twenty-five thousand dollars from her stepfather—and Reggie’s former employer. Reggie insists he didn’t do it, but fears Leila will use his past to stereotype him as a thuggish black jock, adding credence to accusations that could ruin him before his new career gets started.

Since none of the pros at MTR are available to take the case, Jackson is left to work alone. Hoping to prove Leila is actually the thief, he spends his Saturday tailing her and observes unusual behavior that appears to tie her to a local crime family. Despite the danger, Jackson pushes on, determined to help Reggie for reasons he can’t explain. Will he incriminate Leila in time, and in his efforts to do so, will he end up pushing too far?

The Book of Levi

by 

I don’t know where I’m going. I only know I felt a call. Not an out loud voice, not a vision in the clouds, nothing with any drama. More of a knot in my stomach. A duty. A resolution of course. The world has changed since I started out. I can’t even remember how long it’s been, or sometimes, what it was like before I did. Or before It happened. All I know is what I see around me all the time, everywhere, constantly. The Noise.
