Watch for the first 3 books in the “Denny McConnell PI” series of private detective/murder mystery novels to release in late summer or early fall of 2020: A Family Feud Texas Style; A Savvy Way to Kill; and The Texas Medicine Murders.

 
 
Valuable land, oil, and murder make strange bedfellows.
 
Denny McConnell, Private Investigator, is hired to research the deeds, land swaps, and old lawsuits regarding Texas ranchland and oil, the rights to which are now disputed by Wendy Axtell Shearer. Obstacles develop, in part, because of Wendy’s charming but flawed character.
 
Denny puts to good use his engineering skills, and becomes entangled in the bitter family feud that includes murder, mayhem, and lies. Now, he just has to stay alive long enough to untangle this deadly mess.
 
 
Has technology been used as a weapon in the murder of two victims? Denny McConnell, PI, is on the case.
 
Denny is hired by Amber Fagerstrom’s law firm to help prove her innocent of the murder of Bad Boy Philip McDuggle. When another murder takes place in Ft. Worth, allegedly by the wife of the man for whom Denny provided expert testimony, Denny suspects the two cases are connected. Each of the two victims was involved in a coal venture, and Amber happens to have consulted for Philip McDuggle’s company.
 
 
A cure for cancer is stolen in Dallas, Texas, and now people are being killed. Denny McConnell, PI, is on the case.
 
When the young woman who, with four others, stole the promising cancer medicine is knifed in the gut, Denny is hired by her mother to find the killer. Soon after, Denny is kidnapped and mistaken for a man who stole a plutonium purification process, and he becomes enmeshed in an increasingly deadly affair. A week later, the young woman’s best friend is shot along a freeway.
 
Intrigue builds and bodies continue to drop in a seemingly endless string of crimes. Finally, an assassin working for the woman who instigated the medicine theft comes for Denny, and more bizarre twists follow.
