Six Murders Too Many Kindle

Ex-special forces operative, ex-cop, and newly forged private investigator, Carlos McCrary, lands a client whose uber-wealthy father has died. It seems Daddy had a sweet young wife who recently gave birth to a child she claims is heir to half the family fortune.

It looks like a simple paternity case, but nothing is simple when 400 million dollars is at stake. Things quickly spiral out of control when a paid assassin and a cast of disreputable characters enter the scene to make their claims, and bodies start stacking up.

As McCrary uncovers deadly secrets, a shadowy and murderous schemer is determined to stop McCrary’s investigation—permanently.

Quotes from Six Murders Too Many:

“I never met a wine I didn’t like.” I opened the Merlot while Vicky focused on cooking. She studied the recipe lying on the counter; I studied her.
My motto is Nothing succeeds like excess.
The client’s ex-husband repeatedly ignored a restraining order. To get him to stay away from her, I had to negotiate with a head butt and a kick to his balls. The negotiation was successful.
“She seduced me, and though I resisted, I took one for the team. Actually, I took three for the team.”
I strolled to the wall of windows overlooking the glass canyons of downtown Houston. A flock of vultures wheeled in slow circles a hundred feet below me as they rode the thermals and updrafts. Somehow, it seemed appropriate that vultures circled near the offices of one of the largest law firms in Texas.
