http://goddessfishpromotions.blogspot.com/2016/09/book-blast-brooklyn-heat-by-d-james.html


Brooklyn Heat
Author: D. James Eldon
Genre: Crime Fiction

Book Description:
When a little girl is found brutally murdered, veteran NYPD homicide detectives Hiro Masimoto and Ryan Sullivan are determined, against all odds, to solve the case.

In the midst of the worst heat wave in New York City’s history and with personal and professional pressures mounting, the detectives pursue the mother’s ex-boyfriend and former criminal, Nick DeSantis.

But DeSantis, a two-time felon, has skipped town and the detectives struggle to collect enough hard evidence to extradite him before he slips completely out of their grasp.

With a cast of outlaw characters and more twists and turns than a coiled spring, Brooklyn Heat delivers a taut thriller of the highest caliber.

The new paperback version of Brooklyn Heat is available at CreateSpace eStore. Use the coupon code 9NYHU7HL at checkout for 20% discount off the retail price of $15.99. The discount will remain in effect through October.

EXCERPT

Detective Hiro Masimoto makes his way through the gaggle of spectators, approaches the yellow police tape stretched loosely between the railings at the foot of the brownstone steps. He runs an absent hand through his cropped, jet-black hair, then bends his lanky six-foot-two-inch frame under the tape. Despite the heat, he wears an immaculately pressed dark-blue suit, crisp white shirt, and geometrically patterned blue and white tie. A gold shield hangs from his breast pocket.

“Hey, Maxi,” the uniform standing at the top of the stairs says, taking a pull on his cigarette as the detective walks up to meet him.

“Hey, Ralphie. What’s the deal?” Masimoto asks in his patient way, as if passing the time, waiting for a train.

“Don’t know really, but I think it’s murder,” Ralphie chuckles darkly, blowing smoke. When Masimoto doesn’t respond, Ralphie frowns. “I wasn’t first on the scene. McNally and Dugan were. Dugan said to wait here for the Dicks.”

“OK, well, I’m here now. Medical Examiner on the way?”

“Don’t know.”

“Right, so, what do you know?” Masimoto asks.

“It’s been three weeks without a drop of rain, and today’s gonna be another scorcher. Weatherman says hazy, hot, and humid. There’s a bit of a panic over the temperature as no one can recall it ever being this hot this early in the year. It’s been so hot for so long, the murder rate has dropped to its lowest since the city’s been keeping track. People are just too hot to bother,” Ralphie says with a wink, a nod, and a puff of his cigarette.

  10. in what setting do you prefer to write?

    1. I prefer to write in or near the kitchen in an empty house. I drink lots of tea while I'm writing and find the closer I am to the kettle the more actual writing gets done. Also, the less people around the less likely I am to distract myself by engaging them in conversation :)

      Thanks for the question and best of luck to you!

  16. The cover is grim and so is the subject matter, another murder. I want to follow the detectives around and see how long it takes them to solve this case.
