My Blog

Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

The Eulogist

FBI Special Agent Drew Cady is reluctantly drawn into investigating the assassination of a sitting United States Senator. Strangely, the senator's death is linked to a murdered Baltimore junkie with an identical M.O.--a single stab wound to the heart and a typed eulogy left at the scene.
As Agent Cady deals with a professional hit man known only as the Canadian, a breakthrough Alzheimer's drug, a misanthropic hacker, and a Mexican drug cartel, he peels back the layers of deceit and comes to realize that even the reddest of red herrings can bite.
And unfortunately for all involved, the killings have just begun.

“Descent Writing, and Moderate Pacing”

The assassination of Senator Taylor Brockman is the beginning of several murders by the killer known as the Eulogist due to the eulogy he leaves at the murder scene. FBI Special Agent Drew Cady happens to be in town, and director of the FBI C.I.D (Criminal Investigation Division)., Roland Jung brings Cady in on the case.

This was definitely an interesting case. What did Senator Brockman have in common with the other victims, one a junkie? The writing is descent, the pace moderate, and the characters more than paper tigers. The book was a bit long, I thought, and could have done with a few less red herrings. But mystery and thriller fans will enjoy the yarn. Highly recommended.
