“Reading The Brimstone Murders is like going to an old fashioned Saturday matinee so sit back and enjoy the action, the fun, and the cast of colorful characters. Popcorn optional. ”
–Sue Ann Jaffarian, author of The Odelia Grey Mystery Series
Here’s the set-up:
Robbie Farris stabbed his junior college professor twenty-seven times.
At his arraignment, Robbie pulls a gun and escapes. After his mother is found murdered in her shabby house trailer, Robbie’s lawyer, Jimmy O’Brien, is led into the seemingly unrelated worlds of high-profile religious evangelism and old-fashioned Mojave Desert borax mining.
Jimmy fights the clock, the cops, and the DA in his effort to find and return Robbie before he himself is charged with Section 187 … murder in the first degree.
One Reviewer Notes:
“This entertaining legal thriller hooks the audience the moment Jimmy’s client mentions the Lord told him to kill the professor and never slows down until the final confrontation. The story line in many ways is more of an investigative thriller filled with twists and red herrings as makes inquires into the evangelistic world, but also has strong legal subplots. Fans will appreciate THE BRIMSTONE MURDERS as the odds are SIX TO FIVE AGAINST the hero (see ONE, TWO, & EVEN for a previous O’Brien case). ”
