"Belongs on the bookshelves of every Joseph Wambaugh and Michael Connelly fan."

"If this doesn't get your heart pumping, you need to call the paramedics."

The box set begins with the Amazon #1 Best-selling debut novel, A GOOD BUNCH OF MEN, a character-driven crime fiction about two sheriff's homicide detectives who have their hands full with hardcore gangsters, a sexy drug dealer, and a captain who has had it with them both, while they investigate the murders of two prostitutes.

As a bonus, the short story IN THE CITY OF CROSSES, which chronologically fits between the first and the second novels in the series, is available for a free download inside this box set. The hunter becomes the hunted in this fun, fast-paced tale that begins with Floyd's phone being found at a murder scene in New Mexico. "I hope I killed the sonofabitch." Could those have been the veteran detective's famous last words?

The second novel in the series, DOOR TO A DARK ROOM, is a darker, heavier, action-packed crime drama featuring a serial killer, and a trio of mafias: Mexican, Irish, and Russian. Written from multiple points of view, and with rich, authentic dialogue and true-to-life characters reminiscent of vintage Elmore Leonard.

Just when you think it's safe to tear down the yellow tape, ECHO KILLERS will drag you back down the beaten paths of your new favorite veteran homicide detectives. Told as only a tale written by someone who has lived the life can tell, this is an action-packed, fast-paced crime drama about a team of killers who have begun terrorizing merchants in South Los Angeles. A runaway boy witnesses a crime and becomes their next target, while Dickie and Floyd home in on the suspects. Meanwhile, a team of Army investigators has been sent to L.A. in search of two AWOL soldiers, and all appear to be on a collision course in this authentic police thriller.

"Smith's descriptions of characters and scenes take the reader along on the adventure every step of the way."

"Couldn't put it down! Excellent, realistic dialog, a plot that's full of surprises, and amazingly realistic characters. What a great read!"

"Fast-paced plot with dialog that is raw, honest, and familiar to everyone who has ever put a badge on their chest or in their back pocket."

"Not only is this a great police procedural novel, the author, Mr. Danny R. Smith, has captured the true feelings, human reactions, and attempts to cope with the not only difficult but often hard to comprehend situations that true Homicide Detectives find themselves dealing with on a daily basis."
