is the police…
Milo Porter leads a happy life in Tampa, Florida. The Iraq war veteran runs routine private
investigations by day and coaches powerlifting at night. When Chad Scalzo, the grandson of a
rumored mob boss, goes missing, Milo takes the seemingly easy case. After Chad turns up
dead, Milo goes from investigator to suspect.
As he seeks to clear his own name, Milo finds himself at the crossroads of two crooked
investigations one by the mob and the other by the police. With the body count climbing, Milo
discovers the key to the case in the last known person to see Chad alive.
But can Milo get to her before someone else does?

thrillers that will remind you of the characters from Robert B. Parker and Robert Crais. If you like
gripping suspense, hardboiled crimesolvers, and heartstopping action, then you’ll love the
powerful series starter from S.D. Thames.

S.D. Thames is the author of Foreclosure: A Novel, A
Mighty Fortress, and other works of crime fiction exploring the dark side of the Sunshine State. Born in Dayton, Ohio while Jimmy Carter was president, S.D. grew up in the suburbs of
Cincinnati (with intermittent stints in the bayous of Louisiana and on the riverbanks of Indiana).
In 1992, his family relocated to Florida’s gulf coast, about an hour north of Tampa, where he
blossomed as a rock guitarist and all around miscreant. While trudging his way through school, he held various odd jobs, including, in no particular order, working as a pizza cook and
deliveryman (though never concurrently), dishwasher, newspaper salesman, custodian, carpenter, bookstore clerk, guitar instructor, and manual laborer. After meeting the love of his life in 1995, he matured five years in one semester and eventually
enrolled at the University of Florida, where he majored in English and studied about everything
from Chaucer to the TwentiethCentury novel, along with a healthy dose of literary theory. After
graduating, he spent a school year teaching German in high school. His life would forever
change when he returned to the University of Florida to attend law school, the traditional
fallback for despondent English majors. After completing his J.D., he went to work as a litigation
associate at a Tampa law firm. The ensuing seven years are a bit of a blur, but suffice it to say that, unlike the protagonist of
Foreclosure, S.D. made partner the first year he was eligible, and did so without having to lie, cheat or otherwise bend the professional rules of conduct. Most days he enjoys the practice of
law. He’s had the pleasure of working for a diverse array of clients, including Fortune 100 and
Fortune 500 companies, small business owners, real estate developers, venture capitalists, nonprofit organizations, parents in Central America seeking the return of their abducted
children, and deathrow inmates. He still lives in Tampa, Florida, where he’s married to the love of his life (yes, the same one he
met in 1995). They have one daughter, who is 8 years old and a more prolific writer than her
