My Detective

Lieutenant Detective Liam Farrell heads up the Criminal Investigation Division of the police department in San Rosendo, the county seat for Santa Juanita County in Northern California. A former homicide detective in the Boston Police Department from Irish South Boston, Farrell is shrewd, tough, soft-spoken, and married to his job. Consumed by guilt for staying behind to work on a case when his wife, a talented artist with whom he was head over heels in love, was killed in a freak airplane crash; tortured by memories of his wife jogged to life by nearly every street he worked; and disgusted by the senseless stupors he’d drink himself into every night, he turned his back on Boston and buried himself in a small two-officer town on the West Coast. But a brutal murder forced him back into the role of homicide cop, determined not to let those responsible for the deaths of people who cry out for help and find none get away with their crimes.

  1. I’m intrigued!

    • Thanks! I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

  2. Your sketch of Farrell is a complicated character that I think any reader would love getting to know. Don’t give up.

  3. Thanks! I think the one thing I’ll need to have besides luck is dogged persistence. I read the other day that a now successful author had gone through nearly ninety agents before finding one who was willing to take her on.

  4. What a twist your last line leaves us with! Powerful and well done!

  5. Thank you!
