In Brett Always Wins by David D’Aguanno, private investigator and “Charter Member of Unscrupulous Bastards R Us” (Kindle location 1974), Brett Cornell, is a prime piece of all-American beef who has deemed instant gratification a way of life. He’s irresistible; just ask him; he’ll tell you. When a one-night stand calls to say that her husband is trying to kill her, Brett knows the real reason, she’s back for round two. Brett takes her case and finds himself in the middle of a murder mystery. Nothing the great Brett Cornell can’t handle.
With Tutti Frutti (Dev Haskell – Private Investigator, Book 5) by Mike Faricy, Dev Haskell is back in a new mystery! Dev is asked to investigate the owners of a nightclub and falls for Candi Slaughter, one of the waitresses at the joint. Before things kind of happen around Dev, he finds himself mixed up with the mob and questioned by the police. Is someone out to frame Dev?
In Bite Me by Mike Faricy, Devlin Haskell is a private investigator from St. Paul, Minnesota.

As the bodies pile up and the crazy lady disappears, Dev realizes that getting out of this one will not be easy. Aided by his somewhat alcohol-impaired lawyer and countered by a determined police detective, Dev sets out to connect the dots that will prove his innocence.
