Racing the Devil

A Jared Mckean Mystery

By Jaden Terrell

Permanent Pr Pub Co, Hardcover, 9781579622718, 264pp.

Publication Date: January 1, 2012

Description
Nashville private investigator Jared McKean has a son with Down's syndrome, a best friend with AIDS, an ex-wife he can't seem to fall out of love with, and a weakness for women in jeopardy - until one frames him for murder.



His DNA and fingerprints are found at the murder scene. His voice is on the victim's answering machine, and the victim was killed with a bullet from his gun. To make matters worse, his teen-aged nephew comes out of the closet and runs away to join a dangerous fringe of the Goth subculture.



Now Jared must find a way to clear his name, hold his family together, and solve a case that could cost him his life.


Praise For Racing the Devil
"Jared comes across convincingly as a savvy and sympathetic good ol’ urban detective who, despite his own difficulties, is ever ready and able to defend people or animals in trouble." - Publisher's Week
