The New Darkness won Third Place in the 2018 Annual Literary Contest of the Arizona Authors Association. The contest was open to authors from all states.
Continuing from The War Comes Home, after a drunken mob attacks an officer making an arrest of a minor in a bar, Hitchcock is one of "the Four"who get authorization to even the score. Meanwhile, heroin, LSD and cocaine, were killing Hitchcock's generation. As a rookie cop in his hometown, Hitchcock resorts to unconventional methods he learned in the Army to fight back and save lives. The criminal element and others have painted a bullseye on his back, but that won't stop him.
This is a short, fast-paced read with a dramatic ending. As a reviewer at Amazon wrote: "Action, romance and intrigue are the fabric of The New Darkness."
