Chasing The Pain

(The eighth book in the Marty Singer Mystery series)
A novel by

From the author of the thrillers The Winter Over and Birthday Girl comes the eighth book in the best-selling Marty Singer Mystery series.

“If you’re reading this, then you haven’t heard from me in three weeks, maybe more. If that’s the case, call Marty Singer. He’ll know what to do.”

That’s the note Elizabeth Reynolds, ex-wife of friend and former US Marshal Karl Schovasa, hands retired cop Marty Singer. Schovasa’s missing after trying to guide a young addict away from being exploited by a fake rehab center, and all signs point to foul play. In a bid to save both of them, Marty heads south to Palm Beach to take on a cabal of crooks, con men, and drug dealers that operate at will up and down the East coast. They’re the masterminds of a scam worth millions...a scam they’re willing to kill for if it stops Marty from Chasing the Pain.
