Lost in the Fog

 It was supposed to be a simple heist. But running with art thieves could get them killed. 

San Francisco. Disgraced investigative journalist Camden Swanson spends his nights guzzling beer and penning nonsensical poetry. Working a museum guard shift after a drug-addled disasterpiece lost him his job, his life takes a wild twist when he’s offered a huge sum to help steal the institution’s prized Matisse statues. But when someone else snatches the sculptures first, Swanson’s beautiful benefactor demands he return them… or die.

Unable to persuade the vengeful femme fatale he didn’t double-cross her, he engages the help of Veronica Zarcarsky, a recent journalism school grad. But when they discover a shocking secret and everything they’ve learned turns out to be a lie, Swanson suffers a brutal attack and his partner is nearly murdered. 

Can the ragtag duo crack the case before they end up in the obituaries?

Lost in the Fog is the first book in the Camden & Veronica mystery series. If you like wise-cracking investigators, twists you won’t see coming, and classic crime capers, then you’ll love this action-packed whodunit.

Pre-Order Lost in the Fog for some high-stakes larceny today! 


About Me

I was born and raised in Lynn, Massachusetts, and received a B.S. from Boston University in Journalism and an M.A. from Emerson College in Film & Television. I am the author of one previously published novel, A Model Community (2003). After more than a decade of living in Los Angeles and then San Francisco, I moved to Hawaii in 2012. The people, culture, and overall aloha spirit of the islands have given me so many wonderful stories that I look forward to sharing.


A Model Community

A once successful writer goes to Hollywood in search of money, lost love and redemption; what follows is a bizarre odyssey through the town that projects happy endings on the silver screen, but is less charitable with them in reality.  You can order it here.
