Detective Brian Van Buren is a fictional police detective working for the City of Tacoma in Washington State. He isn’t like the detectives you might read in other books. He has atrocious eating habits, smokes, and wouldn’t pass a physical fitness test if his life depended on it.


Van Buren also has a habit of bending rules, one that infuriates his superiors, but when has he ever cared what his bosses think?


Always relentless in his pursuit of criminals, Van Buren is initially introduced in my debut novel, Cherry Street, where he worked the case of an abducted child. The trail to find the missing child is stalled by a lack of evidence and corruption within the department. In Head Count, our fearless detective is on the trail of a serial killer terrorizing women in Tacoma. Grit City is the third addition where the police shooting of a young black man sets off protests and Van Buren is determined to find the truth in the midst of chaos.
