Early Birthday Present

Coming up on another birthday, and I'm celebrating early with the release of my first collaboration with Joe Konrath, author of the popular Lieutenant Jacqueline 'Jack' Daniels mystery-thrillers. Awhile back, Joe opened up his characters to a franchise concept. Writers like me could tap his characters, create a story, and submit it to him for approval. If it passed muster, he'd then edit/polish/publish the story.

And voila! We have Abductions, the first of what I hope will be a series of stories that feature my psychic detective AJ Rakowski and Konrath's Jack Daniels, a homicide detective in Chicago. Here's the blurb.

Psychic Investigator AJ Rakowski can't talk to the dead, but she can 'dial' into a dead person's vibes. Why this qualifies her as a consultant for the Chicago Police Department is a mystery to skeptical Homicide Lt. Jack Daniels, who has real cases to solve. But when Rakowski is brought on to help stop a serial kidnapper from abducting his next victim, Jack is forced to work with AJ. A girl's life is on the line, and maybe if the two learn to accept their differences and join forces, they just might be able to stop the...ABDUCTIONS.

Available at Amazon and B&N and Kobo and Smashwords and Google Play and Sony and iTunes and others. It's a short story, 40 pages, and on sale for $1.99.

A sequel, of sorts (but without Daniels), that features Rakowski and my PI Ned Nbonivoy is called Drinking Games. (Also at Smashwords.) It's another serial killer thriller, if you're into that genre. Just in time for Christmas. And my birthday.

"Funny, thrilling, and action packed! Perry is the real deal." 
- JA Konrath, author of Shaken
