Shiver on the Sky

cover3Book Description:

Owen Tremaine is in more trouble than he ever imagined. 28 years old, the founder of a software company in Corpus Christi, Texas, he thought work-related burnout was a major crisis. After walking away from his company, he’s spent a year trying to reinvent himself as a private investigator, living on a houseboat. Which he realizes is a fantasy that’s not really working out, but he doesn’t want to admit that to anybody…yet. Maybe a few more months will turn the tide.

But then, on a lazy summer afternoon, a good friend gets killed on Owen’s houseboat, and Owen finds his body. The police think Owen’s girlfriend may be involved. She’s missing, and so is Owen’s former business partner. Who, judging from the blood left on his floor, may also be dead. Then there’s the kidnapping of a local child. And…it turns out that not everybody involved is, strictly speaking, human. Which Owen also never saw coming. Magic? Really?

Owen’s new skills get a workout. Now he’s dealing with what used to be his own cutting-edge software development company, a police detective who takes a personal interest, some downsides of recent anti-terror legislation, and…a surprising discovery about local Native American history. You know, the magic thing. Turns out extinction is more complicated than it first appears.

But hey. Owen’s still got friends. Too bad he doesn’t know as much about them as he thinks he does….

      It’s coming…glad to hear you liked the first one. I haven’t decided about including the raccoons, though!

    I would love to read Shiver on the sky so bad. I just finished Sherlock Holmes and I’d like to keep the wheel rolling. About the goofy giveaway, brilliant idea!

    Hi David, thanks for the contact on Twitter. So, I like the synop for this one a lot. Send it to me on mobi and if I like the read I will leave a review and also buy more of your stuff. Cos its a pain to find good authors.
    Cheers mate and good luck with the promo! Great idea. You must be a bit mad.

      Sent! And I feel the same way about finding good authors. It’s been a goal of mine to be one of ’em since I was about six years old. So I guess you’ll find out how I’m doing, won’t you?

      And…a bit mad? Why do you say so? Also, why only “a bit”? I demand a recount! Or anyway I might, and then how would you respond?

      Regardless of the condition of my brain chemistry, I do hope you enjoy the book.
