Felony Murder Rule, Book 4 in the Meredith Ryan Mysteries promises mystery, adventure, and twists and turns as you follow Meredith Ryan while she chases down a killer from the past.
After Deputy Sheriff Meredith Ryan is unable to apprehend an intruder leaning over her baby’s crib one horrifying night, she launches an investigation to protect her family.
When she uncovers her father’s hidden involvement in a robbery and homicide years ago, she begins to put the pieces of a long-thought-dead puzzle back together. But vicious criminals are desperate to find the infamous hidden loot, and they are eager to use Meredith and her family as bargaining chips.
With just 24 hours before the criminals close in again, Meredith and Nick must find a way to safeguard their family—before it’s too late.
Felony Murder Rule is a police procedural thriller about a brave, young deputy who identifies and faces her enemies—both within herself and the real world.
Felony Murder Rule is due out any time now. I just received promotional postcards and bookmarks created by unique talent and friend, Michel Wing. Here’s where I’ll announce when and where Felony Murder Rule will be available for purchase in eBook (Kindle) and print copy.
This will be the last you hear from me on this site. As with
all good things, Just the Facts,
Ma’am (JtFM) will come to a close. It’s not for lack of stories, to be
sure. A dearth of time is the culprit. I have a book to finish. And after
almost losing the mister last year, family has become that much more precious.
They only ask my time.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank LAPD alum Hal Collier—the guy who started it all. His stories emailed to other LAPD retirees became the bulwark of JtFM. Thank you to Gerry Goldshine, an early contributor. Mikey sent us his memories once a month. Sometimes we laughed; sometimes we cried. Thanks, Mikey for your moving words. Ed Meckle became the most prolific writer in the JtFM and has earned my gratitude. Ron Corbin came to the party late but gave us all a lot to laugh about. Thanks, Ron. There were other writers, to be sure. Take a moment to scan through the posts for some interesting stories from the guys who’ve been there, done that.
For two years, I hosted Writers Notes. Other authors posted themed stories with links to their work. I met some terrific folks who I’ll continue to call friends. There are some great writing tips in those posts–available for another year.
As for me, I’m still putting the finishing touches on what
was Felon with a Firearm but is now Felony Murder Rule. It is off
to beta readers already. My list of readers reads like a who’s who of local law
enforcement: Mike Brown, retired captain and homicide detective and Will
Wallman, retired sergeant (Coroner’s Office) both from Sonoma County Sheriff’s
Office and Mike McBride, retired Marin County District Attorney’s Investigator.
Also, Karen Lynch, retired
Homicide Investigator from San Francisco Police Department and author of Good
Cop, Bad Daughter. These fine folks promise an authentic reading
Once I get their feedback, it’ll be more keyboard time to
make corrections and such. It looks like I’m closing in on the final draft of
the fourth Nick
and Meredith Mystery. Boy, is it a good feeling! So you won’t see me on my
blog Just the Facts, Ma’am anymore
but I will be at work. I’ll continue to email quarterly notes about the
progress of my books, appearances, and so on. If you’re interested, sign up at www.thoniehevron.com.
Thanks for your loyal readership. It’s been great.
