Middle Man

now in paperback

      In the vein of Jack Reacher and Jason Bourne, Lt. Rollie Water’s expertise is going undercover to solve complex crimes involving powerful military officials and unknown enemies who are prepared to kill for stolen fortunes. In MIDDLE MAN, Rollie is recruited into the U.S. Military’s elite, covert group SHADE. His assignment is to locate and retrieve the millions of dollars taken from Saddam’s cache during the Iraq War and shipped home in the coffins of dead soldiers. When a sniper fatally attacks the team and the list of graves he recovered is wrong, Rollie is given a new mission: assume the identity of wealthy investment banker Robert Hewitt to find the puppet master who initiated the whole plot.

      Rollie’s secret quest takes him from the nightlife of Houston to the self-proclaimed King of Kurdistan, and into the arms of a stunning, enigmatic woman whose motives he can’t discern. As a confirmed citizen of the fog, now more spy than soldier, Rollie must uncover the man pulling the strings behind a backdrop of murder, deceit, and stolen fortune—before he disappears forever into the mist.



Praise for Middle Man:

“From the first bullet to the last, Middle Man is Ludlum-style action at its best. After reading it straight through, I'm now looking forward to Lieutenant Rollie Waters' next assignment.”

-Ace Atkins, New York Times bestselling author of The Broken Places


“Rollie Waters is tough as Reacher, clever as Bourne, and cool as Bond.  I'm addicted.”
-Howard Blum, Edgar Award Winning and New York Times bestselling author


“Middle Man is a rapid fire read, so make sure you’re locked and loaded when you start because two-hundred and ninety-nine pages are going to fly by in this kinetic and compelling burst of a book.” 

-Craig Johnson, the New York Times Bestselling author of the Walt Longmire Mysteries




Caravan of Thieves

Now in Paperback release

A spectacular debut thriller about a charming con artist, a ruthless heist, and the son charged with constructing a fragile truth out of a lifetime of lies.

     Rollie Waters has no intention of paying for the sins of his father, Dan. Rollie is going to make others pay, and he is going to use the tricks and tactics his charming, enigmatic con artist father taught him—and a few Rollie dreams up along the way—to make it all happen. Dan taught Rollie how to stay two steps ahead of trouble and how to offer cheap gifts with one hand while stealing the family silver with the other. But, unlike Dan, Rollie is not a criminal.
​       Rollie’s childhood was a mesh of perfectly believable lies stretched so thin that he barely knows who he is. It’s only when he’s working undercover, inhabiting a false identity, that Rollie is comfortable in his own skin. The danger of deep undercover work makes use of his talents and keeps him out of trouble. Most of the time.

       After he’s yanked out of his latest assignment and tossed in the brig, he’s only partly surprised when the officials in charge mention one name: Dan Waters. U.S. government money—a lot of money—has gone missing, and they think Rollie’s father took it. The only way to find Dan is to trace the frail tendrils of truth scattered among Rollie’s childhood memories. To do that, he’ll have to go deep into the undercover identity of a lifetime: his own.
