Fort Hood, Texas, 2016. A vehicle carrying seven soldiers was swept away in a flash flood. Four were killed, three were never found.
Los Angeles, 2018. A runaway boy claims to have witnessed a murder. The story seems farfetched, but Floyd takes the case. Unsure, he turns to his old partner for a second opinion.
But Dickie has problems of his own. He has been assigned a new partner, a good cop but one with a checkered past. It’s the last thing Dickie needs, regardless of how sexy she happens to be. When the two are sent to investigate a murder in Compton, Dickie recognizes the similarities to Floyd’s new case.
Army investigators descend on South Los Angeles in search of AWOL soldiers, while Dickie and Floyd close in on the killers. Are their paths set to collide?
In an exciting, action-packed police drama replete with perilous twists and snaky turns, this murder mystery will drag you beyond the yellow tape and into the minds and souls of killers and those who hunt them.
“A fast-paced novel filled with colorful characters and dialogue reminiscent of vintage Elmore Leonard. Brimming with true-to-life details that can only come from the pen of an experienced homicide investigator, Echo Killers has an authenticity which is rare among murder mysteries.” – Phil Jonas
“To say that I thoroughly enjoyed the book would be an understatement. Like his previous novels, this book was riveting for me. Hence the reason that I was determined to finish it in one sitting. It had me on the edge of my seat a couple of times so I just had to keep turning pages.”
