Retired detective T.J. Peterson is working table scraps his former partner, Danny Little, sometimes throws his way. One of them has Peterson hearing from a snitch about a body buried 30 years ago, the same time a drug kingpin went MIA. Peterson is also ducking an ex-con with a grudge, a hitman who likes playing jack in the box with a 12 gauge. Then a former lover reenters Peterson’s life and begs him to find her daughter, an addict who knows too much about the local drug trade for her own safety. The search for the girl and the truth about the 30-year-old corpse takes Peterson down into the hell of it all, deep into the underworld of crack houses, contract killing, money laundering, and crooked professionals doubling down on their investments of black money.  (ECW Press)

Scamps and Scoundrels gives readers a glimpse of the lives of smugglers, sailors, robbers, murderers, and sometimes just ordinary folk having a surprisingly bad day. Riotous and witty, Bob Kroll writes these tales of historic hijinks in a delightfully folksy style. With over a hundred tales from the 1700’s to the 1900’s, there is an example of just about every odd, peculiar, silly, and ill-advised adventure you can think of(Nimbus Publishing.)

“Gritty, raw and suspenseful from the first page—this describes The Drop Zone, a new crime novel from Halifax author Bob Kroll. Dark, sleazy and violent also depict the events of this fast-paced novel. If you like a true detective story, a good crime scene and the whodunit that unfolds, you are in for a ride.” Heather Fegan, Atlantic Books Today.
