(Angel Interrupted)
(The second book in the Dead Detective Mystery series)
A novel by


Innocence lost, secrets uncovered and a shocking revelation…

Dead detective Kevin Fahey returns in The Innocence Thief, one step closer to redemption but still a wandering soul left to ponder the damage he did as a hard-drinking, careless detective when he was alive. He keeps watch over his hometown, hoping for the chance to atone for the life he has wasted. This time, the dead detective is caught between two cases he suspects are linked: the murder of an emergency room nurse and the kidnapping of a young boy brazenly taken while playing in a park near the home of the murdered nurse. Fahey’s journey takes him deep into the mind of an odd neighborhood man, whose memories could hold the clue to the missing boy's whereabouts, and into the psyche of a dark and self-contained nurse with secrets hidden from those who loved and admired her deeply. With the help of a strangely misshapen lost soul who follows him about, Fahey must do everything he can to lead the living to the kidnapped boy before the child’s innocence is lost—ultimately uncovering an astonishing revelation that will change the lives of those who discover it forever.

The Innocence Thief

is the second book in the Dead Detective series and was originally published as Angel Interrupted under the author’s pen name, Chaz McGee.

About the Dead Detective series: Once a promising cop with a bright future, Kevin Fahey’s self-destructive tendencies led him into alcoholism—destroying both his career and his marriage while ultimately contributing to his early death. Now a lost soul in limbo, Fahey is desperately trying to make amends so that he can escape the lonely world between heaven and earth that he finds himself trapped in. He sees assisting Maggie Gunn, the detective who replaced him, as the best way to start the process of his atonement and, perhaps, one day move on.

The Dead Detective series has been described as suspenseful but also deeply thoughtful and, ultimately, both inspiring and reassuring. It’s a perfect choice for readers who might enjoy unique police procedurals that are more intelligent than your average crime novel—as well as readers who want to explore both the mysteries of life and what may lie beyond.
