To save a missing girl, he’ll have to confront his dark past. A past that means to kill him...


Drifter Adam Rutledge left his Appalachian hometown for good nearly two decades ago. In all those years, he has never forgotten how helpless he felt when his best friend was abducted. And Cold Springs has never forgotten its mistrust of the orphaned boy who drew heartache like a lightning rod.


Now a strange dream sends Adam back to Cold Springs, to Jennifer Jane Tulley—the only friend who still believes in him—and to the discovery that another innocent has been taken. Adam may have been helpless before, but this time, JJ convinces him, is different. This time they can save the child.


To find the missing girl, they must solve the riddle of Adam’s tragic past. But when their efforts reveal Adam’s deepest, darkest secret, the visions he has spent a lifetime burying are unleashed. While he struggles to maintain his sanity, JJ fights to keep him alive, to protect Adam from himself and from the madman watching them from the shadows. Watching, and waiting...


Prodigal is the first book in the Dead Hollow supernatural suspense trilogy. If you like crime thrillers with authentic characters, evocative settings, and a dash of paranormal, you’ll love this haunting series.

MISSING PERSONS is the first book in the new Buddy Steel mystery series by New York Times best selling author, Michael Brandman.

Steel...smart, aggressive, ironic, spare and cynical...has been content working homicide at the LAPD until his father, the legendary Sheriff Burton Steel, falls ill with Lou Gehrig's disease. Sheriff Steel is headquartered in Freedom, a privileged coastal community located a hundred miles north of Los Angeles. His health failing, he asks his son Buddy to come home to cover his back and to groom him to be his successor.

Buddy reluctantly agrees. He returns to Freedom despite having outgrown its small town limits, wary of his father's authoritarianism.

No sooner does he hit town than Buddy learns the wife of the high-flying star of a Freedom based world-renowned television ministry has gone missing. A visit to the woman's home leads to a hostile confrontation with her husband's family and Buddy's realization that something greater than simply a missing person is at stake.

Allegiance between father and son provides the backdrop for Buddy's complex investigation of twisted families, avaricious con artists, violent gangs, drugs, corruption, and murder. And added to the mix is an enigmatic femme fatale who succeeds in upending Buddy's tenets regarding contemporary relationships.

MISSING PERSONS is its own book, yet crime fiction fans will find it a joy to trace its literary lineage from Raymond Chandler and Robert B. Parker through to Sue Grafton and Michael Connelly.
