Crime Boss Gunned Down, Chuck McCrary Accused of Murder in Double Fake, Double Murder, a Murder Mystery Thriller from Dallas Gorham

When an organized crime boss is gunned down in the street, the police finger one of their own homicide detectives, Jorge Castellano, whose wife was threatened. Desperate, Castellano hires his best friend, Mexican-American private investigator Carlos “Chuck” McCrary, to find out who framed him.

A disgraced former police detective and convicted black-mailer, Ted Snoot, is Chucks’s prime suspect. But when Snoot is found shot to death—murdered with Chuck’s gun—Chuck is arrested for murder.

Released on bail, Chuck follows a tangled web of fabricated evidence through the crime-filled streets of a South Florida ghetto to the mega wealthy’s waterfront mansions and lofty condos.

But with time running out for Chuck and his friend, Jorge, Chuck faces resorting to his own vigilante justice.

About the author

Dallas Gorham combines murder, mystery, and general mayhem with a touch of humor—all done with a PG-13 rating. His Carlos McCrary, Private Investigator, Mystery Thriller Series can be read and enjoyed in any order. Dallas writes in the mystery, thriller, and suspense genres. (Take your pick: His novels have all three elements) His stories will get your heart pounding and leave you wanting more. He writes to hit hard, have a good time, and leave as few grammar errors as possible (or is it “grammatical errors”? Hmm.) In his previous life, Dallas worked as a shoe salesman, grocery store sacker, florist deliverer, auditor, management consultant, association executive, accountant, radio announcer, and a paid assassin for the Florida Board of Cosmetology. (He is lying about one of those jobs.) If you ask him about it, he will deny ever having worked as an auditor. Dallas is a sixth-generation Texan and a proud Texas Longhorn, having earned a Bachelor of Business Administration at the University of Texas at Austin. He graduated in the top three-quarters of his class, maybe. He has also been known to lie about his class ranking. Dallas, the writer, and his wife moved to Florida years ago to escape Dallas, the city, winters (Brrrr. Way too cold), and summers (Whew. Way too hot). Like his fictional hero, Chuck McCrary, he lives in Florida in a waterfront home where he and his wife watch the sunset over the lake most days. He is a member of Mystery Writers of America and the Florida Writers Association. Dallas is a frequent (but bad) golfer. He plays about once a week because that is all the abuse he can stand. One of his goals in life is to find more golf balls than he loses. He also is an accomplished liar (is this true?) and defender of down-trodden palm trees. Dallas is married to his one-and-only wife who treats him far better than he deserves. They have two grown sons, of whom they are inordinately proud. They also have seven grandchildren who are the smartest, most handsome, and most beautiful grandchildren in the known universe. He and his wife spend way too much money on their love of travel. They have visited all 50 states and over 90 foreign countries, the most recent of which was Indonesia, where their cruise ship stopped at Kuala Lumpur. Dallas writes an occasional blog post at that is sometimes funny, but not nearly as funny as he thinks. The website also has more information about his books.
