Views, Reviews and Interviews

27 Days was just named a Finalist in the General Fiction category of the 2023 American Fiction Awards! 27 Days is a taut and topical political thriller narrated in laconic noir fashion by veteran LA PI Nick Crane. In the spring of 2019, Nick is on the run in the Pacific Northwest, pursued by a cabal of wealthy right-wing power brokers and domestic terrorists (the Principals) led by Marguerite Ferguson and Desmond Cole. Nick has clashed with Marguerite and her crew in the past, and she wants him abducted so that she can personally “close his eyes forever.”

Things get worse. Nick’s close friend and business partner Bobby Moore is kidnapped by Marguerite and the Principals. Nick is then informed that he has twenty-seven days to surrender to Marguerite. If he does not turn himself in, Bobby will be sent to Scorpion prison in Egypt to be tortured and murdered. If Nick surrenders, however, Bobby will be released.

Help appears in the form of a young, idealistic female FBI agent named Carrie North who wants to arrest Marguerite for conspiring to commit domestic terrorist operations against the United States. Nick and Carrie join forces and the race against time to rescue Bobby Moore begins.

In the Depths of Corruption…
In the Face of Tyranny…
One Man's Quest Begins…


Get ready for a heart-pounding ride through the dark underbelly of America in Patrick H. Moore’s latest thriller, Rogues & Patriots.

As the second installment in Moore’s gripping trilogy, this book plunges readers into the dangerous world of veteran LA PI Nick Crane. Locked in a life-or-death struggle with the ruthless Miles Amsterdam and his cabal of aristocratic "super patriots," Crane must navigate a treacherous landscape where power and ideology collide.

Eight years after he and his team liquidated Frank Constantine, a murderous military shrink and close personal friend of Miles Amsterdam, Nick Crane finds himself abducted, beaten and threatened with rendition to a black site in Egypt if he refuses to join the Principals’ cause, which includes attempting to incite anti-Muslim violence in every major American city. Crane, however, is rescued by his close friend and business partner, Vietnam War vet Bobby Moore, and the war is on.

Packed with well-drawn characters, relentless action, and razor-sharp narration, Rogues & Patriots is a scintillating sequel that builds on the momentum of its predecessor, 27 Days. As Nick Crane once again emerges as a beacon of resilience and integrity, readers will be drawn deeper into a world where the fate of a nation hangs in the balance.

Are you ready to uncover the secrets of power and deception where nothing is as it seems, and trust is the ultimate currency?

Join Nick Crane on a relentless quest for truth in the face of corruption and betrayal. Get your copy of Rogues & Patriots today and start on an adrenaline-fueled journey through a world where the line between hero and villain blurs, and only the brave dare to challenge the status quo.

In this edgy detective thriller, Southern California heiress Jade Lamont is desperate to find her beloved brother Richard, who has vanished without a trace. To make matters worse, her father, Cicero Lamont, has just died under mysterious circumstances and her mother has committed suicide. In desperation, Jade turns to Nick Crane – an intense old school private detective with a big heart and a crack team of deputies. But even Nick doesn't anticipate the dense web of evil and intrigue that has swallowed up Richard and threatens to claim him and Jade as its next victims.


Cicero's Dead is as hard boiled as it is compassionate. Read it, and take a walk on the wild side.
