According to the book description of Spoilers, "What happens when a clandestine group of politicians and intelligence operatives run prototype weapons through Lieutenant Peter Banks jurisdiction? Nothing, theyre clandestine, no one knows they exist or what they do... Right? Correct, right up until one of their prototype weapons turns up at a drug bust, along with a congressmans son who likes to moonlight as criminal elite. The paperwork on the arrest is not finished before an army of politicos and local executive pressure comes down on Banks and his narcotics unit like a thousand year flood. Everyone wants to make the arrest of a prominent politicians offspring go away, even Banks own Chief of Police. Normally that wouldnt be a problem. Most cops follow orders from the chief, most cops have a stake in their careers. Peter Banks has been burned before by political fixers who seemed to think the various strata of society are not all created, or treated equally under the law. Banks also has a team behind him that would follow him to hell and back if it meant getting the job done. From an exclusive island off the coast of South Carolina, the mountains in the upstate, to the gutters of Charleston, SC Banks and his team will charge through mercenaries, assassins, and their own hierarchy to see justice done; and they will do it at terrible cost. Spoilers details what happens when a determined police unit puts service and doing the right thing above themselves. It is a fast paced, intricate, and explosive read that leaves the audience exhausted and begging for more after the last page is turned."

According to the book description of Shattered Circle, "Jackson Cole is a newly minted homicide detective thrown head first into the grinder when he is ordered to investigate the grisly murder of three women, each adorned with seemingly occult symbols. The press is stirring up a killer cult frenzy in the media. The mayor, the Chief of Police, and Cole's Captain want results to calm an increasingly fearful public; and Coles supposed partner is nowhere to be found. Its just another day at the office until a stranger shows up spouting a wild theory: blood magic. Cole won't even consider it. There is no such thing as magic, no such thing as voodoo; and there are no demons roaming the Charleston Peninsula. Theres always a rational explanation for the evil humans commit upon one another. Then a demon tries to take Cole's head off. How do you stop a supernatural evil, something ancient and unencumbered by the laws of either physics or man? Especially when all you bring to the fight is a pistol and a pair of handcuffs. If Jackson Cole wants this case to close, he will need to open his mind to a world of the impossible. A world he never knew existed, until now. Then he'll have to survive it."
