The Last Of The Good Guys by Ernesto Patiño

When three former cops commit suicide, private investigator Alec Santana knows it not a coincidence. An ex-cop inexplicably commits suicide in Miami, and his widow turns to her husband’s best friend, Alec Santana, for assistance.

Soon after, two more ex-cops commit suicide. After talking to one of the widows, Santana discovers they all had a single event in common: they responded to a Christmas Eve fire almost fifteen years ago. Threatening letters turn up, prompting Alec to dig deeper into events from the past. He knows he’s on the right track but things turn dangerous as someone tries to run him off the road.

The police refuse to help, insisting there’s no connection between the suicides and recent accidents. Alec hits one dead end after another in his search for suspects and he nearly gives up, until he uncovers a shocking secret…

Web Of Secrets by Ernesto Patiño

Some family history is too dangerous to be revealed.

Sarah Baker’s search for the truth about her adoption uncovered a tangled web of deadly secrets. A phone call from a blackmailer turned Sarah’s life upside down. The man claimed to know the circumstances of her illegal adoption thirty years ago. He also revealed some shocking facts about her real parents.

Rather than have the blackmailer go public with the information and risk her husband’s career, she agreed to a one-time payoff. Their situation was far from resolved, and doubts about her heritage put a strain on their once ideal marriage.

Sarah still didn’t have verification of the truth. She needed more details. Were there any brothers or sisters, or other family members nearby?

Had the same blackmailer approached them too?

Hiring a Private Investigator seemed the only option, but it meant opening a Pandora’s box. Sarah needed confirmation and closure, and was willing to take the risk. Ex FBI investigator turned P.I. Joe Coopersmith was up to the task, but working on a thirty-year-old mystery wouldn’t be easy. Joe didn’t realize it might also turn deadly.
