Synopsis | Teaser | The Series | About the Author | Giveaway & Tour Stops


When a little girl is found brutally murdered, veteran NYPD homicide detectives Hiro Masimoto and Ryan Sullivan are determined, against all odds, to solve the case.

In the midst of the worst heat wave in New York City’s history and with personal and professional pressures mounting, the detectives pursue the mother’s ex-boyfriend and former criminal, Nick DeSantis.

But DeSantis, a two-time felon, has skipped town and the detectives struggle to collect enough hard evidence to extradite him before he slips completely out of their grasp.

With a cast of outlaw characters and more twists and turns than a coiled spring, Brooklyn Heat delivers a taut thriller of the highest caliber.

Once you start reading you won’t be able to stop until the heat breaks in Brooklyn.

Teaser: Excerpt

“Hey, Detective,” Pete Dugan says, looking exhausted and nervous.
     “What’s up?” Masimoto asks, stepping further into the hallway, glancing at the black nameplate on Dugan’s chest and scratching it in his pad.
     “Well, my partner Jimmy and I responded to a call. Someone heard screaming at this address. When we get here, nothing’s happening. We ring the bell, knock, but nothing. Neighbor who called was outside. She had a key. We enter, announce. Nothing. Not a sound. Jimmy, ya know, he dives right in. I take upstairs, he’s down here.” Dugan stops, looking around like a lost child.
     “So, where’s he now?” Masimoto asks quietly, noticing Sgt. Cappalleri standing next to him.
     “Basement. With the lady. I tried to go down there, but he bit my head off. I never seen him like this. Scared the fuck out of me.”
     “The lady, she have a name?”
     “Neighbor who let us in said Lisa and mentioned a daughter. Jimmy said there were two downstairs. One dead, one in shock. I just saw him and the lady.”
     “You check the rest of the house?”
     “Yeah, empty.”
     “OK,” Masimoto says jotting all this in his pad. He notices Sgt. Cappalleri looking through the mail on a side table to their right. “You call the M.E.?”
     Dugan shakes his head. “Just the paramedics and you.”
     The Sergeant holds up a few letters. “All these are addressed to a Lisa Serrano, probably your lady in the basement.”
     “Thanks,” Masimoto says.

All The Way Gone [1]

Imagine your wife disappears. When the police get involved you find yourself thrust into a world where everything you thought you knew about yourself was wrong, and the lies you've been living have caught up to you. Do you deny the truth or lose yourself to your demons?

This is Jack Turner's nightmare. This is All The Way Gone.

With the police suspecting him, Turner learns you can never outrun yourself. The story turns on a series of seemingly unconnected events. Things become complicated as the two detectives assigned to the case begin following different threads, leading them in opposite directions.

Can these men who've worked together for years survive their differences and come together to solve the case? Is Jack Turner involved in his wife's disappearance? More importantly, will they find her in time?

All The Way Gone will hold your attention from the first page to the last. You won't be able to put it down. All The Way Gone is an all the way great read.
