Pizza Noir Book No. 1

Pizza Noir Book No. 2

Pizza Noir Book No. 1 introduced Detective Ricky Thompson, as he began investigating triple homicides at a Tacoma strip club. As it turned out, there were dozens of similar killings on the same night at similar venues all along the West Coast. As Thompson and his peers at fellow agencies along Interstate 5 investigated these strange killings, unsettling things began to happen. It soon became clear that the homicide cases might not only be unsolvable, but that reality as they once thought they knew it was gone for good.

Pizza Noir Book No. 2 opens up with Detective Scott Smith's axe-related homicide investigation—an assignment which he considers himself lucky for, compared with the morass that has become his colleague Thompson's caseload.

Pizza Noir Book No. 3 a saga of mysterious deaths, werewomen, land-eating sharks and magified roller derby chicks continues and Detective Rick Thompson is left to pick up the pieces
