Synopsis - Dave Browne, a former big city undercover cop, is hoping to finally settle into a peaceful new life as police chief in a small northern Canadian town. When he'd first arrived in the middle of winter, he’d relied on both his ability to disappear, and his new First Nations friends, to solve an unsolved murder, expose corruption at the local mill, and defeat an evil spirit. Now it’s summer, and he’s planning on being just a regular cop, worrying about things like jaywalking tourists and loud cottage parties. Unfortunately, parts of his past reappear, and he’s confronted with a biker gang, drugs, another murder, and a demonic possession. It's now time for him to face the benefits and limitations of his unique ability, changing both it and himself in the process.

Return to Kirk's Landing is available as a paperback online from Chapters and Amazon, on order from your local bookstore, and as an ebook from Kindle, Kobo, iBooks, etc.

Finding Kirk's Landing

If you do a Google Maps search, you will find that it's here, at Big Choctaw Bayou on the Tensas River in Louisiana.  Kl

Did you like it?

I've sold hundreds of copies of my books face-to-face, plus more online as paperback and ebooks. I've also given away over two dozen, and have copies in local bookstores, the Ottawa Library, and several libraries across Canada. 

So, now that you've read my work, how about an online review?

A few of you have already added your feedback on various sites, but I would appreciate more - be it lavish praise or constructive criticism. You can just add a one-liner, such as "Great read, loved the small town feel, needs less pie and coffee breaks", or more if you feel inspired. Adding it to multiple locations would be even better.
