The Shroud of Turin is one of history's most controversial and perplexing relics. Many believe it to be the genuine burial shroud of Jesus Christ. Some hypothesize the image on the shroud was created through a rare scientific phenomenon. Still others think the shroud is a fake, proven through carbon tests in 1988 to be a clever forgery. In The Truth About the Shroud of Turin, reporter Robert K.Wilcox applies his investigative eye to this mysterious artifact.
A cross between Shaft, Mike Hammer, and Body Heat, Dead in the Rose City is a taut, hard-boiled detective novel in which nothing is quite what it seems. Dean Jeremy Drake, nicknamed D.J., is a Jamaican-Italian private investigator and ex-homicide detective for the Portland Police Bureau. He is six-five, hip, tough, armed with a .40 caliber Glock, and courts danger and romance with equal abandon. Those qualities are put to the test when Drake is framed for murder in the midst of two seemingly unrelated cases.
