Theresa Maddux's mother has been killed, murdered execution-style in what the police are calling a break and enter gone wrong. But Theresa suspects a darker motive and returns to her home town to discover the truth.
While leading her own investigation into the crime, Theresa discovers a secret long buried in her past, a revelation stranger than any she could have imagined, one that will forever alter her life's path, if she survives.
Good natured, sarcastic and tough, Theresa Maddux, Reese to her friends, is a thirty year old, former Marine Corps Staff Sergeant capable of a singular mission focused determination. In relentless pursuit of the truth, she often finds herself skirting the edge of legality, working with law enforcement almost as frequently as she runs afoul of it. And in possession of an unorthodox charm, an unchecked wit and a jack hammer talent for scrapping, she has an uncanny knack for producing unconventional results, some dangerous, others deadly.
Hard-boiled fiction set in the present day, The Green and Ghastly Deep is the first in the new and exciting Theresa Maddux Adventure series. Novels to follow include The Gun Metal Blue Moon and The Gray and Languid Grave.
