Read full description of the books:
Inspector Victoria Rhodes works long hours as one of the last clean cops on San Francisco’s crumbling police force. When a double murder claims the life of a city prosecutor in the exclusive covenant community of Atlantis, Rhodes is assigned as liaison between the SFPD investigation and the investigation run by the private security force known as the ASM.
Public Prosecutor Katherine Radcliffe was the face of local politics, fighting to resurrect the fallen city of San Francisco by bridging the gap between the private wealth of Atlantis and the forgotten populace of the public sector. Found in the arms of her ex-sensual companion turned corporate psychologist lover, her death resonates with Rhodes and the people of San Francisco on a personal level.
With tensions building between the classes and evidence mounting, Rhodes finds herself delving into the past of the man at the top of the ASM corporate ladder, an inexplicable mercenary turned upper-class messiah , known as Atlas.
When she discovers that his past resembles her own remarkably, she can’t help but force a confrontation that brings her face to face with a man she cannot understand, a suspect she knows she has to pursue, and a truth she knows she may not want to uncover.

Read information about the authorThe first story I wrote, I plagiarized. I was eight years old and it was the first school assignment of the year after we'd spent the Summer, may parents and I, visiting my aunt in Boston. My aunt was attending MIT and applying for jobs with the CIA to help make spy-gadgets smaller. In short, she was a nerd, just like my dad, who spoke in a lot of acronyms.
The trip had been mainly walking and history lessons up to a certain point (there are great pictures somewhere of me throwing a fake bale of tea over the side of a fake old wooden ship). Anyway, I was eight, it was Boston. One night, my aunt decided to take me for a walk through the old city at night to show me the neighborhood cemetery.
If you've never had your creepy/nerdy aunt take you to a cemetery in Boston after sundown when you're eight, you've missed something that leaves an impression. It was in this cemetery that my aunt told me a story that was kind of spooky--about a boy who finds a turtle and takes it home only to have it turn out to be demonically possessed. It was your typical "Don't go to sleep" story and when it came time for a school assignment to write something creative, I was weak and ignorant and I got a B+ because my teacher didn't know I'd totally kiped the idea.
It's been over 20-years now. And sometime between ages eight and fourteen I figured out that stealing stories wasn't nearly as rewarding as making them up to impress girls. I've written for the stage and for television as well as online magazines and literary journals. Atlas was my first independently released novel.
