Dooley’s Back

Originally published in 2002, this novel introduced the Dooley family featured in the prequel Homicide 69.

Dooley’s back in town after eight years in Mexico, and he doesn’t like what he sees. Dooley used to be a cop, but the system failed him; after taking the law into his own hands, Dooley had to take off. Now he wants to come home, but things have changed. Dooley’s old partner Roy has a gambling problem, and a cop with a gambling problem means a cop with a mob problem. Dooley’s going to try to make everything right again, but he’s going to find that playing God is not as easy as it seems.

Sam’s novel COLD BLACK EARTH is available from Thomas & Mercer.

ColdBlackEarthIllinois farm girl Rachel Lindstrom joined the State Department to see the world. Now, worn down by service in a war zone and a painful divorce, all she wants is to come home and rest.

At home, however, there is little comfort. Her brother struggles to run the family farm and handle a hell-raising son. Meanwhile, Rachel’s arrival draws a pair of rival suitors: her brother’s handsome friend and a rough-hewn sheriff’s deputy who pined for her in high school.

When a deranged killer escapes from a local prison, the far-flung farmsteads go on high alert—especially when the bodies start turning up. And in a county where the miles outnumber the people, it soon becomes clear that the madman is close behind Rachel.

 

MOB COP

Mob CopMob Cop details the decline of tra­ditional organized crime in the United States, and reveals information about the inner workings of the Outfit that has never been publicly released. Fred Pascente’s col­orful stories of crooked cops and danger­ous criminals make his memoir a matchless tell-all.

 

 

Sam has published seven crime novels set in Chicago. Four feature Chicago cabbie Cooper MacLeish, two feature the Dooleys, a Northwest Side police family, and one is a stand-alone featuring Army veteran and trouble-shooter Tommy McLain. Other titles are forthcoming.
