The Zen Man website is all about The Zen Man book, a medium-boiled, but not light on the humor, mystery featuring Rick and Laura, the 21st century equivalent of Hammett’s PI team Nick and Nora. Although Rick and Laura share senses of humor and noses for sniffing out trouble like their counterparts, they’re contemporary private investigators in today’s electro-savvy contemporary world. Whereas Nick might have sat in his car for long hours on surveillance, Rick is all about virtual-surveillance using GPS devices. When Nick might’ve pulled out a gun, Rick prefers his stun gun…although it’s been sitting so long under the front seat of his decade-old Pontiac, it’s probably out of juice.
But when it comes to investigating a homicide, Nick would’ve respected Rick’s know-how, gutsiness and creativity.

Praise for The Zen Man
"Great humor. Great dialogue. Author did a great job of establishing the relationship between Rick and Laura. It never overshadowed the mystery, but it made the book truly multi-dimensional."
~New York Times best-selling author Dorien Kelly
"A real page turner. I enjoyed this book full of suspense and surprises. I have never read this author before but will look for her next surprise."
