Murder in the Family.JPG first draft fro

Roger Pyles, forensic specialist and investigator, has again been asked by Florida Governor Pete Steele to act as his Special Agent. His assignment is to track down a gang of serial thieves that’s been plaguing the state. So far, his record of investigative success has been good, but has he bit off more than he can chew this time? What surprises, pleasant and unpleasant, will he have to deal with? Will he escape with his skin intact or not? Dealing with criminals can be deadly.

I purchased a copy from the author directly. Very intriguing and kept me on the edge of my seat. A must read indeed. Waiting patiently for his next mystery. Giovanna G.

Hi, thanks for stopping on my page. I'm Jay Heavner, author of 10 mystery novels, soon to be 11. I've been writing for about a decade. As long as people keep asking for more books, I'll keep writing. If that stops, I'll go fishing. Until then, enjoy my two series, Braddock's Gold Mysteries set in West Virginia, and my Florida Murder Mystery series set in the Sunshine State. Enjoy.
