About the book:

Her brother was murdered. After two years the NYPD had given up. It was now up to me to find the murderer.

Once a Detective… introduces Dan Burnett, an NYPD detective who opts for retirement after failing his physical. At fifty-five, he becomes a private investigator, learning the ropes from a P.I. with a similar history. Divorced and living on a sailboat, his one source of happiness is his college-aged daughter.

After assisting his new partner with ongoing cases, he lands one of his own: a beautiful woman whose brother was murdered. With the NYPD abandoning the case, it's up to him to find the murderer, all while grappling with his attraction to the client.

The suspects? Las Vegas casinos, where the brother owed a million dollars, and his second wife, who inherited millions upon his death. Dan doggedly works the case, drawing on his lifelong skills, with the help of a former colleague initially assigned to the case. Tracking a mob hitman leads him on a chase across the country, searching for the truth and ultimately finding it.

About the author:

"I grew up in Westport, CT, where I met Beth, my high school sweetheart. We were married in 1973 and just celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary! After a few different work experiences in my twenties, I started a new career as a home builder in my thirties. This business grew into real estate development; by 2005, I was building condominiums.

Beth and I had two boys in the 80s and raised them in Fairfield County, CT, primarily in Danbury and Newtown. Both our sons are now married, and we have been blessed with two wonderful grandsons. 

By 2000, I had become fascinated with ocean sailing. We have owned three sailboats since then and have sailed the western Atlantic and Caribbean seas multiple times from Maine to Grenada and every place in between, living aboard for much of that time."
