Rated 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads by readers.
Police Detective Lori Daniels has a knack for picking the wrong guy as a lover. This complicates her assignment on a task force established to end drug trafficking in the city.
One former lover from high school is now the front man for a major illegal drug distributor. Another former lover is the captain of the Police Internal Affairs Division, who vows to have Lori kicked off the police force, even if it means framing her as a gang informant. Her present lover is the hot shot detective from another precinct who is super successful in bringing down the drug gangs and has a super ego to match.
Strategies devised by the State Police, City Police, Internal Affairs, and a Drug Gang, including using moles and informants, all go haywire. In the end, the trust between friends, along with steady and reliable police work, regarding the death of a female police officer, leads to the capture of a major drug lord.
The book combines the wit and charm of characters in an O’Henry tale with the suspense and twists of a M. Night Shyamalan plot to take the reader on an exciting journey, while leaving a craving for more.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Pulp fiction is my favorite genre to read. I also have met very accomplished and talented single women who talk about the guy with whom they fell in love that turned out to be mister wrong.
This combination gave me the idea to start the Lori Daniels Mystery series. Lori has a reputation as one of the top investigators in the Police Department. However, she also as a rep for picking the wrong guy as a boyfriend.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The lead character, Lori Daniels is based on a friend of mine who has admittedly dated several mister wrongs.
Some of the characters are based on people I have known socially and professionally.
The bulk of the characters are conglomerations of my imagination, drawing from other novels, television and movies.
“What did this guy look like?”
“Well, let’s see, blond guy, tall, business type. Ya know the guy who looks like he has spent a lot of time at a desk. Starting to get soft. We get them in here all the time. ,” Latisha says.
“Any personal identifying characteristics,” Tate asks.
Latisha looks at Tate and mutters, “Huh?”
“Any tats, scars, maybe a lisp, anything we could use to identify him,” O’Reilly says as she secretly smirks at Tate. Tate, just a secretly, flips a middle finger at O’Reilly.
Latisha thinks for a few seconds then says, “Well, he had a coat and tie, he didn’t look at my boobs when he talked to me, most guys do, ya know,” she points at Tate, “like him, and he talked like his shit was ice cream.”
Trying not to laugh, O’Reilly leans towards Latisha asking, “How so? Like what did he do?”
“Well, using big words.” Latisha changes her voice to sound deeper and continues, “It is the utmost importance, Grave consequences, stuff like that.”
“What happened next?” O’Reilly asks.
“Well, a little later Regina comes in as usual. I tell her about mister softy. She seemed worried after that. Having coffee at the table she would keep looking up from her phone then back down to her phone then look up again…”
Tate interrupts and says impatiently, “Okay, okay she’s nervous. Then what?”
Latisha stops talking and gives Tate the “you talkin’ to me” look.
“George, get us some coffee, will ya please?” O’Reilly pleads.
