“The atmosphere is always first rate” – Publishers Weekly
American private investigator Mike Faraday thought he’d manage to escape the slog of detective work waiting for him in downton L.A. when he jets off to the Bahamas.
But that dream is shattered when he finds a body dumped on the beach in front of him.
Quickly, he becomes embroiled in the violent Mafia underworld, taking a few batterings along the way and meeting some men, and some women, that tend to get your blood boiling.
Follow Mike Faraday as he navigates this precarious illicit gangland and tries to get to the bottom of the hideous crime that has begun to haunt his darkest hours.
Night Frost is a fast-moving crime thriller featuring Mike Faraday, the gritty detective who makes his living the hard way in downtown L.A. Faraday’s sardonic humor and way with the ladies lend an authenticity to this story and the mystery only gets more and more twisted the more Faraday discovers.
