Catch Me When I’m Falling, Book #3 of the Charlie Mack Motown Mystery Series
Someone is murdering the homeless in Detroit’s Cass Corridor—by immolation. These horrific crimes wouldn’t require an investigation by Charlie Mack and her crack team investigators, except one of the burned bodies is her mother’s friend. There’s a lot wrong with this case: the police won’t admit a serial killer is on the loose, drug trafficking intersects with the deaths, and a rogue cop is involved. The timing also couldn’t be worse—Charlie and Mandy are finally moving in together. This case becomes the most difficult of Charlie’s career when she transforms herself into a street person, and mixes with the corridor’s gangs, do-gooders, and the down-and-out to uncover evidence the police can’t continue to ignore.
Bury Me When I’m Dead, Book #1 of the Charlie Mack Motown Mystery Series was a finalist for the 29th Annual Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Mystery.
