Just one ‘newbie’ this week, this an ARC provided by the book’s author, with the book itself due for general release on September 1st 2014. Stan is a well established author in the non fiction world, with a couple of YA fiction titles already under his belt.
Haunted by her past, Detective Francis “Frankie” Ryan must race against time to solve a double homicide and find a sadistic killer, while the press attacks her as a feminist vigilante who takes the law into her own hands.
Besieged from all directions, the only person she can trust is a tabloid reporter who also writes the Midnight Whisperer’s psychic column, Ask Miss Myrna. He finds to his surprise that he not only has psychic abilities, but that only he can see the sexy ghost serving as his rather inept guardian angel. Is he crazy if he develops feelings for a ghost?
As they search for the killer in a sunny seacoast city’s seamy S&M underside, the two worlds collide, as they begin to question everything they know about sexual identity. How can they find the killer before he strikes again when he defies description?
Silent Partner is a paranormal mystery, a police procedure novel with a female detective that will remind you of Harry Bosch, a ghost story that suggests what lies beyond death, and a comic look at a tabloid where the truth is whatever sells.
Stan describes himself as a futurist, technologist, novelist, and a person curious about many things.
His curiosity about things might be well born out by the veritable roll call of jobs he has held over the years including: autopsy assistant, police department administrator, salesman, sales manager, literature professor, telecommunications professor, and technology analyst, and research director.
For many years he worked as a technology analyst, covering such diverse areas as green technology, wireless networking, network security, and local area networks. He has written several books on these topics and started Schatt Research as a way for him to publish his views on key technology trends. Because traditional market research firms charge such outrageous fees for their reports, he decided to publish his studies as books online, available at Amazon for a tiny fraction of what companies he worked for sold the same type of material.
Stan is now a full-time writer and lives in Carlsbad, California with his wife, Jane. He is primarily writing mysteries at the moment when it comes to fiction, together with his technology papers and non-fiction books focusing on careers and retirement.
He is also a volunteer job facilitator for the Jewish Family Service in San Diego, with the goal of finding good jobs for the unemployed.
