Sergeant Andrew G. Nelson, New York City Police Department (ret.) completed a 20 year career with NYPD before moving to Central Illinois. Andrew G. Nelson is the author of Perfect Pawn, Queen's Gambit and Small Town Secrets.

According to the book description of Perfect Pawn, “Patricia Ann Browning didn’t see the deer standing in the middle of the road until it was too late, not that it would have mattered. For retired NYPD Detective, James Maguire, the pieces of his life were finally starting to fall into place. He was running his own lucrative private security firm catering to Fortune 500 companies and had just met Melody Anderson, a highly successful business woman from Long Island's posh enclave of Southampton. Everything, it seemed, was looking up. That was until the morning newscast reported that his former high school flame was missing from a one car accident on a rural country road in upstate New York.


Arriving back in his old hometown Maguire must come to terms, not only with his past, but the fact that no one seems interested in pursuing the investigation into Patricia Browning's disappearance, including the missing woman’s husband, the local sheriff. As Maguire struggles to put the clues together in time, he is drawn deeper into a game where people are as expendable as pieces in a chess game and the only goal is to take down the king. A crown Maguire unwittingly wears.”

According to the book description of the Queen's Gambit, “Hunting the mysterious serial killer was like trying to catch a ghost. In the six months since they had first battled to a stalemate, James Maguire had spent countless hours chasing down leads and sightings of the elusive killer, only to watch them slip away at the very last moment. For Maguire, and the state police task force charged with capturing him, it was as if the man had never even existed. Now Maguire’s old friend, Richard Stargold, has been appointed as the new NYPD police commissioner, and is offering James the opportunity to return to the department he loves. While the specter of the killer remains ever present, now an even greater danger looms just ahead on the horizon, a threat which will put more lives at risk. In a game driven by revenge, how much will be sacrificed to win? The clock is ticking."

According to the book description of Small Town Secrets, “Alex Taylor watched as the bottle eagerly consumed both a career and a chance at love. Now the former New York City Police sergeant has a shot at redemption in the idyllic small town of Penobscot, New Hampshire. When the body of a young woman is discovered floating in the lake, the clues lead Alex down an investigative path which threatens to rip the façade off the sleepy little town, and expose its seedier side. Alex soon finds that murder might be an option to protect small town secrets.”
