...And Night Falls, romantic suspense with a Southern flair. Now available on Amazon.com
Bullets and blackmail and beaches...
A hit man and a hurricane and a high-stakes political campaign...
...And Night Falls ramps up the action and suspense when Pensacola native Shelley Goodnight finds the body of a murder victim...but not just any victim. Dead man Farrell Gilbert worked at the desk next to Shelley's in her father's real estate office...an inconvenient fact the authorities can't ignore.
Add a category three hurricane, a hitman and a conscientious sheriff's deputy from Santa Rosa County to the mix, and the tension tightens like a corkscrew.
Farrell Gilbert addressed one blank envelope to the Bellview box and another to his goose that was laying the golden eggs. He inserted the photocopied pages into the envelopes and sealed them, thought he heard a sound and stopped to listen. His imagination. Had to be. He was all nerves—wound up tight and shaking. And he surely imagined the noise.
All the same, he took a small square of notepaper, wrapped the two keys to the post office boxes in it and looked for a place to hide them, a place no one would think of looking, any place to keep them from being found in his possession. Big mistake, bringing the keys with him when he returned to the office after closing. In the future, he would take the extra minutes to drive back to his apartment and leave them there. The contents of the Bellview box stood between him and sure disaster. It was his insurance. If they found that post office box...he shuddered.
