by David Berardelli
Deacon's new client is a 14-year-old girl with an attitude.
Fourteen-year-old Tabby Kendrick believes she sees a mugging and possible kidnapping. Unable to get satisfaction from the local police department, she seeks out the help of Private Investigator Ralph Deacon. Deacon, with the help of his dead buddy Mike, soon finds himself embroiled in a complex puzzle involving Kissimmee's Hispanic mob, the South American drug pipeline, a murder, and an extortion operation involving a popular exotic dancer.

Influenced by the works of Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Harlan Ellison, and Theodore Sturgeon, he began writing in his early teens. He's also a James Bond fanatic and has read every Ian Fleming novel. As a boy, he was inspired by "The Twilight Zone," and focused on horror and sci-fi as well as suspense. He also loves humor, frequently including it in his stories, as evidenced in his DEMON CHASER series of five novels. His novels, WAGON DRIVER, AND DARKNESS FELL, and AFTER DARKNESS FELL, all focus on futuristic dystopian societies. APPRENTICE and STEPPING OUT OF MY GRAVE deal with death, and are both spiced with humor. His FUNNY DETECTIVE series is another example of his humorous take on death. His novel, IN ANOTHER REALM, deals with a world only our subconscious could be aware of. A RIPPLE IN TIME, AWAKENED, and YESTERDAY'S JOURNEY are tales dealing with illusion and the imagination. COLORS, FATAL INNOCENCE, ESCAPE CLAUSE, BEYOND RECOGNITION, BEYOND GUILT, and REDEMPTION are all suspense stories. Many of his stories take place in Orlando, Florida, where he lived and worked for more than twenty years.
