Hank Hammond, ink hardly dry on his private investigator business cards, never anticipated that a chance encounter with a pair of suspicious characters and a mysterious crate would change his life forever. But it did, and nearly ended his life...also very much forever. And the deeper Hank gets into his investigation, the more the danger spreads until ultimately imperiling other innocent--and not so innocent--people, including his client, wealthy octogenarian Walter Tompkins, the client's favorite grandson Richard, and Hank's reluctant investigating partner, legal assistant Lori Reed. Navigating the varied neighborhoods of Kingston Beach, California, from hilltop country club to Dumpster site, coastal marina to his own apartment, Hank unravels a series of crimes--past, current, and future--and with just the right combination of strength, skill, cunning, and luck, he might just be able to prevent the most virulent crime of them all.

I can neither confirm nor deny that I write under the name of J.P. David as a condition of my participation in the Federal Witness Protection Program. What I can say is that I write in a small mud adobe building set back from a dirt road on the outskirts of a city in a western state, that I am currently working on TRIPLE THREAT, the second book in the Hank Hammond P.I. series, as well as on the suspense thriller THE PROJECT. Both of these books will be released in 2012.I can also confirm that I have been employed in various assorted positions in more than three, but fewer than thirty states and that I have never technically been incarcerated unless you count the time I served in the vice principal's office in Junior High.Editor's Note: In addition to the information above, J.P. David is a graduate of the California State University at Long Beach with a degree in creative writing, and has a business background that includes supervising a staff of investigators much like Hank Hammond, P.I. of the DOUBLE TAKE and TRIPLE THREAT murder mysteries. He is a former general coordinator of a Mystery Writers of America satellite and has been a presenter at both Left Coast Crime and Bouchercon.J.P. resides with his wife and their dog in a rustic mud adobe home that is frequented by coyotes, deer, javalenas, rabbits, squirrels, snakes, gila monsters, bobcats, and the occasional human. He is an active volunteer in the community, with a particular interest in health and caregiver issues.For more information, please visit
