Coming in 2022

Stitches follows Jim Wolfe, a PTSD-riddled Army Ranger turned private investigator. Between his questionable relationship with a Romanian restaurateur’s son, and investigating the disappearance of a famous musician’s daughter with his partner, Scarlett Vaughn, Wolfe has a lot on his plate. When a string of grisly murders centering on college students grab the city of Boston by the throat, Wolfe finds himself entangled in more than one mystery. While Wolfe and his partner attempt to unravel the threads connecting the killings to their missing rock n’ roll heiress, Sebastian Codreanu discovers how deeply his father is tied to the recent crime spree, and the Mass Art Murderer plots his masterpiece. Everything is not what it first appears to be, and everyone has a secret.

Stitches received a silver medal review from The International Review of Books and was a finalist in the LGBTQ category at the 2019 Independent Author Network's Book of the Year Awards.

Three months have passed since the Mass Art Murderer terrorized the city of Boston. Army Ranger turned private investigator Jim Wolfe and his partner, Scarlett Vaughn, spent the summer working cases and training their new intern, Sebastian Codreanu. When a campaign event for gubernatorial candidate Christopher Sullivan is disrupted by gunfire, Wolfe and Scarlett team up with Boston Police Detectives Kamienski and Silent Mark to protect Christopher and his family in the days leading up to the primary election. Meanwhile, CIA agents David Wolfe and Diana Johnson unravel a sinister conspiracy at a mental institution, Jake Wolfe struggles with the aftermath of the Mass Art Murders, and Caitlin Sullivan tries to get married without bloodshed... but it's not a party until somebody dies. Your favorite characters from Stitches return in this face-paced, darkly humorous romp through New England.

From the author who brought you Stitches and Scar Tissue comes Wounded, the third installment in the Wolfe & Vaughn Mysteries. Taking place about a month after the events of Scar Tissue, Wounded follows former Army Ranger turned private investigator Jim Wolfe and his partner, Scarlett Vaughn, as they attempt to help a friend locate his long-lost daughter and her mother in Romania. It's a well-timed trip, considering they recently conspired to have Boston's biggest crime boss murdered... but little do they know, that didn't go quite as planned. Back in Boston, Jake Wolfe goes undercover to take down his uncle's underground fight club, David Wolfe fights to save his partner from Blakely Manor (and herself), and the Mass Art Murderer makes their triumphant return to their hunting ground. Featuring all the characters you love and introducing some new ones in preparation for a spinoff, Wounded is full of action, mystery, and dark humor.
