MEET DETECTIVE JACK CREED
He considers himself a professional police detective. A stickler for getting it right. His trade is non- conforming.
Creed is the man you want on your side. He always gets his man or woman. Opinionated. Street smart. Anit-establishment. Focused until the end. You wouldn't want to come up against him. You’ll lose!
SHATTERED (Novella 1)
A dead man with ten expensive-looking rings on his hands shows up in an industrial waste bin behind the popular Cabarita Beach Resort, an hour’s drive from Brisbane Australia in the second instalment of the Australian Detective Jack Creed mystery novels. What makes this criminal investigation even more intriguing is the torture on the dead man’s fingers and toes—all broken prior to his death.
Australian Detective Jack Creed is immediately on the case seeking criminal justice, but sifting through the myriad of suspects including a battered wife, a recalcitrant son, an ex-lover and a missing secretary—all with secrets to hide—only makes this murder by the sea more mysterious.
Was the murder by a hitman involving the mafia or revenge by seduction involving a sinister women’s murder club seeking sweet revenge? “Find the ring, find the killer” becomes Jack’s mantra—everyone has too many secrets to tell, but no one’s talking.
Will Jack , with all his criminal profiling skills, be able to sift through their lies and figure out this murder mystery, or will the “ring man” keep his secrets beyond the grave?
