The book is a legal thriller with a philosophical twist. “A riveting story that hinges on clues so elusive that the tension is exquisite.” – Midwest Book Review
Disillusioned with her corporate legal career, attorney Charlotte Ambler volunteers to handle the final appeal of Christopher Ritter, a Florida death row inmate whose execution is imminent. Ritter had been a prominent biologist before being convicted ten years earlier for the brutal murder of a prostitute. He denies killing the woman but is tormented by guilt for other, secret transgressions. The only appeal he will allow is to prove that he is innocent—a kind of appeal which is almost impossible to win. Ritter claims he was framed by a shadowy figure named Craft, but as Charlotte studies the evidence she concludes that Ritter is a dangerous psychopath who should not go free. Then a piece of evidence turns up that confirms a key part of his story. Pursuing her investigation, she is thwarted by hidden forces that seem determined to see him executed. In a race against the clock, she searches for the elusive Craft and finds herself in the cross-hairs of a psychopathic killer. THE DEVIL’S CHAPLAIN is a gripping tale of deception and self-deception, betrayal and violence, in which lawyer and client find common ground in their quest for justice and human values.
“Brilliant… A highly entertaining mystery with a heroine as compelling as she is gutsy.” — Ken Bruen, author of the Jack Taylor series.

“…a suspenseful, pitch-perfect novel with an unlikely lead detective: a fictionalized version of iconic Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges… An intelligent, original detective novel.”– Kirkus Reviews.
Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1967. The blind poet Jorge Luis Borges, visiting at Harvard, faces a crisis of conscience and identity as he and his young assistant Nick Martin grapple with an extraordinary series of crimes and the equally baffling conundrums of literature and philosophy. Forty-five years later, struggling with pain and grief, Nick Martin looks back with wonder at that magical time and asks himself: Did he ever find out who Borges really was?
Lighthearted but deeply serious, The Philosophical Detective is a unique journey into the visionary world of a genius.

THE PHILOSOPHICAL DETECTIVE RETURNS — the sequel to THE PHILOSOPHICAL DETECTIVE – is on sale this week on Amazon for 99 cents (ebook).

An ancient ring stolen from a Holocaust victim. A stuffed raven that once belonged to Charles Dickens. An extra body in the New York City Morgue. Only one man could follow these clues to a solution: the legendary Jorge Luis Borges.
“… highly recommended for classic detective story enthusiasts who look for complexity and intellectual challenges in their characters and stories.” – Midwest Book Review
Two years after their collaboration chronicled in The Philosophical Detective, Nick Martin again falls under the spell of the blind poet and fabulist who calls himself Jorge Luis Borges. Together they must solve a baffling series of murders, find the fabled Ring of Solomon, and rescue the raven that inspired Edgar Allan Poe. Once again Nick plays the parts of Watson, Sancho Panza and Dante as he threads his way through Borges’s conundrums to the shocking truth.
Like its predecessor, The Philosophical Detective Returns is a lighthearted but deeply serious journey into the visionary world of a genius.
