Double Fake Double Murder Book Cover on Book page

When an organized crime boss is gunned down in the street, the police finger one of their own homicide detectives, Jorge Castellano, whose wife was threatened. Desperate, Castellano hires his best friend, Mexican-American private investigator Carlos “Chuck” McCrary, to find out who framed him.

A disgraced former police detective and convicted black-mailer, Ted Snoot, is Chucks’s prime suspect. But when Snoot is found shot to death—murdered with Chuck’s gun—Chuck is arrested for murder.

Released on bail, Chuck follows a tangled web of fabricated evidence through the crime-filled streets of a South Florida ghetto to the mega wealthy’s waterfront mansions and lofty condos.

But with time running out for Chuck and his friend, Jorge, Chuck faces resorting to his own vigilante justice.

Quotes from Double Fake, Double Murder:

“…we don’t think of ourselves as rich. We say that we’re comfortable. People who are comfortable have enough money to do practically anything. But they don’t have enough money to do nothing.”

“My husband’s family is super-rich. He has so much money, he could buy a small Central American country. He could do anything or nothing.”
“Mother raised me with the idea that it’s as easy to fall in love with a rich man as a poor one—easier in fact, since you can overlook so many faults.”
“It’s amazing how much smarter you and I get when our consumption of alcohol increases.”
“He couldn’t pour piss out of a boot if the directions were printed on the heel.”
