My first novel of 2010, CSI: Blood Quantum, goes on sale today at all your better-type bookstores.
Here's the back cover copy:
Following a free-spending night at an exclusive Las Vegas nightclub,
the chairman of the Grey Rock Paiute Tribe is found brutally murdered
in his home, a cryptic message scrawled on a wall in his own blood.
Soon, crime scene investigators Ray Langston and Nick Stokes have their
hands full with a growing mystery -- already surrounded by controversy,
the victim appears to have met his end from a crime of revenge, but the
chairman's inner circle isn't talking about who or why...quickly
leading to an escalation of violent retribution....
At the same time, Catherine Willows and Greg Sanders investigate the mysterious shooting of a homeless man on the palatial estate of Helena Cameron -- the widow of one of Sin City's first casino tycoons. At first, it seems like an open-and-shut case of trespassing and self-defense...but the CSIs soon uncover layer upon layer of heartbreak and tragedy in connection to a family keeping secrets as old as Las Vegas itself....
