Cal Rogan, former rising star detective, fired from the Police Department because of his heroin addiction, wakes up in a squalid alley with blood all over his jacket and no memory of how it got there. It is Saturday, the day on which he has a supervised visit with his seven-year-old daughter Ellie, whom he adores. But then he finds Kevin, his best friend from his old life, dead. His former colleagues tell him that it was suicide but Cal knows Kevin would never kill himself and vows to get justice for him. Cal’s mission takes the reader into the world of the drug-infested streets and the quirky characters who inhabit them, the world of the drug gangs who prey on them and the multi-millionaire criminals who control them. (See reader reviews.)
The second Cal Rogan mystery opens with the death of a boy about the same age as Cal’s daughter, Ellie. The murder looks ritualistic and when Cal investigates, he discovers that the murdered boy had some very unusual abilities. Oboe takes Cal into the worlds of fringe religions and autism and his ever present nemesis, the world of the drug trade. See sample chapters.
