Publisher's Summary

A set of three #1 bestselling mystery novels featuring private investigator, Jim Knighthorse, including:

Dark Horse:

When high school student Derrick Booker, the only black student at a posh Orange County high school, is accused of killing his white girlfriend, ex-college football hero and detective Jim Knighthorse is hired to dig a little deeper into the murder. It doesn't take long for Knighthorse to realize that not all is as it seems at tranquil Huntington High, from a band director who preys on the innocent to a vice-principal with a secret agenda of her own. Not to mention someone's hired a professional killer to keep Knighthorse permanently off the case. As the investigation continues, Knighthorse's personal life is shattered by the discovery of new evidence relating to his mother's unsolved murder, a murder dating back twenty years. Reeling from the discovery, a determined Jim Knighthorse sets out to bring two killers to justice.

The Mummy Case:

Private investigator Jim Knighthorse takes on a very, very cold case. When historian Willie Clarke dies of mysteriously of dehydration in the California deserts, ex-football hero Jim Knighthorse is hired to dig a little deeper - and discovers a shocking connection to one of the West's oldest mysteries. Over a hundred years ago, an unnamed cowboy was murdered in the California desert and, due to freak weather conditions, would become mummified within twenty-four hours. Now known to the world as Sylvester the Mummy and displayed in a creepy curiosity shop, Sylvester and historian Willie Clarke will be forever linked in mystery. That is, unless private investigator Jim Knighthorse can survive long enough to untangle one of the West's greatest unsolved murders.

Hail Mary:

In this third book of the series, Private investigator Jim Knighthorse finds himself on the trail of his mother's killer, a cold case spanning two decades. While on the hunt, he takes on a brutal case that takes him into shark-infested waters and deep into the heart of Mexico. All the while, Knighthorse comes closer and closer to finding his mother's killer... and there's going to be hell to pay.

What the Critics Say

"I read Dark Horse by J.R. Rain. He's the author of Moon Dance, that I reviewed last column. The author is a private investigator, and it shows; this is another fast moving and entertaining detective story. Rain is surely destined for larger success, if he can get the right break; his fiction is fun reading." (Piers Anthony, bestselling author of Xanth)

"I finished Dark Horse late last night. I enjoyed it immensely - very good story, J.R.! I really liked your dialogue, which kept me chuckling each time I sat down to read the book. Add great character and scene descriptions and a well-paced plot, and you've got a gripping story indeed. I can honestly say your book was as entertaining as anything I've ever read from Patricia Cornwell. I can easily see Dark Horse moving to the big screen!" (Aiden James, bestselling author of Plague of Coins)

"Dark Horse is one of the best books I've read in a long time! A great classic detective story with a modern twist. Unique and interesting characters (I think I'm half in love with Jim Knighthorse now!), a great plot that kept me guessing until the end, and some of the funniest lines I've read anywhere. Rain does an amazing job of blending suspense, mystery and humor in this fantastic debut novel destined for the keeper shelf." (Gemma Halliday, bestselling author of Spying in High Heels)

    "I liked it a lot"

    The arrogance of Knighthorse was humorous. Stories were good but short. I'll read the 4th but I'll read it myself as I do with all of the shorter novels. I listen to the longer ones. This threesome is worth a read.

    I am retired and my enjoyment is listening to books and crocheting.

    "Excellent Series"
    Where does Jim Knighthorse Anthology rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I gave it four stars. Jim Knightbhorse is a neat guy and I wish I could meet someone like him except for the drinking part.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this series. It was positive; the good guys won. There may have been a touch of improbability, but that did not distract from my enjoyment.
