A religious man Nate had left the process of becoming a Priest to get engaged to the woman he loved, but she was murdered and Nate was wrongly convicted of her Murder
After 17 years on Death row his conviction was overturned and he was released, with a very healthy compensation.
Now he’s making up for lost time. With a penchant for Colombian marching powder, and a love for the ladies he is now an unlicensed Private Detective.
So who else would ex Detective Madison Harper turn to for help.
Madison had been a successful cop, working her way up to being a Detective in Vice and working undercover.
Until she was framed for the voluntary manslaughter of a colleague.
Having served six years of her ten year sentence she was released penniless and without any hope. Working as a waitress amongst an area awash with the prostitutes she shares her accommodation with she has saved every penny she can to hire Nate to help her prove her innocence.
Nate doesn’t want to take the job, especially as Madison still can’t afford him, and her suggestion of working for him for free doesn’t fit in with his style of work, or life. Then there’s the fact that she’s and ex cop and he hates the Police
When a girl goes missing her grandmother contacts Nate to find her, because the local Police are not getting anywhere. So he takes Madison on for a trial period to help him
The first book in a new series rightly concentrates on the main character(s) and their relationship.
The case of the missing girl leads to an investigation that tests that, and their own convictions
Without giving spoilers there are subplots involving Nate and Madison that are going to run through the series, and will make people want to buy into it.
Can it be read as a standalone, yes, but I suspect that once you have read the first, you will want to find out more about this unorthodox and at times unlikely crime fighting team.
