MITCH ADAMS BOOK 1: INTERROGATION
Competitive, cocky Mitchell Adams is a Ph.D. social worker in St. Louis who has it all-intelligence, good looks, a thriving private practice and a beautiful girlfriend-until his highly ordered world is suddenly turned inside out by her brutal murder. All evidence points to Mitch himself until he starts receiving phone calls from someone claiming to be her killer and one of his clients. The caller carries a past grudge and is hell bent on framing Mitch-and on killing one of his other clients if Mitch goes to the police.
Faced with a spectrum of colorful, challenging clients as potential suspects, Mitch runs the killer's twisted gauntlet alone in a race against time to catch the killer before the police arrest him for the murder. His odyssey returns him to his days as a fledgling therapist and forces him to confront his own secrets. Ultimately, he must choose between learning the truth about the woman of his dreams and keeping a memory alive.
MITCH ADAMS BOOK 2: COUNTERFEIT
The last person social worker Mitch Adams wants to hear from is St. Louis Homicide Detective JoJo Baker, a man with whom Mitch shares a tangled past. Baker wants Mitch to counsel Lonnie Washington, a disabled African-American arrested for counterfeiting and armed robbery. The evidence points to an open and shut case, but Baker insists it's not so black and white. Reluctantly, Mitch agrees and discovers there is more to the story-more than enough to get them both killed. At first Lonnie won't cooperate, but as he begins to open up, Mitch is convinced that the true criminal is not the man behind bars, but the prosecutor who put him there-a man with far-reaching political ambitions, the approval of the public, and his very own Secret Service detail. With millions in near-perfect fake $100 bills up for grabs, Mitch's life hinges on the word of a counterfeiter, the greed of a prosecutor, and his refusal to go down without a fight.
MITCH ADAMS BOOK 3: THE VIRTUAL SUICIDE MACHINE
Clinical social worker Mitch Adams receives an urgent plea to save his mentor, psychologist Tony Martin...from himself. Tony's obsession to develop a Virtual Reality machine that prevents suicides hits a roadblock--the technology doesn't exist. Desperate for help in building his machine, Tony signs a contract with a local engineering firm whose bombastic Jewish leader commands twelve "apostles," among them a beautiful and beguiling half-Arab female engineer named Danielle Naila. One night Tony secretly trials the machine on himself and it works--only he's not alone. Drugged, injured, his life's work gone, and thrown out of his home by his wife, Tony turns to his best friend Mitch to help recover the stolen machine. Danny may or may not be the culprit, but who is her master and what is their ultimate plan? Dead bodies begin showing up in the machine's wake days before Pope Francis is to visit the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica. Mitch dives into the world of corporate espionage and kidnapping as he hunts Danny, learns the machine's frightening power, and deduces what Danny is prepared to do to achieve her ingenious plan. Elusive and deadly, she's one step ahead of everyone and another short step away from starting a world war; Mitch must think faster on his feet than ever before to save the lives of those he loves and prevent a tragedy with global ramifications. The novel is part-thriller, part-crime/suspense, part-detective story and will appeal to those interested in virtual reality, the functions and wonders of the human brain, current events such as xenophobia and Middle East--U.S. relations, neuro-biology, social work, and psychology. Like the first two novels in the Mitch Adams series, Interrogation and Counterfeit, the Virtual Suicide Machine takes place in present-day St. Louis, Missouri.
