B. A. Degree from the University of Texas. Former stock broker before earning legal assistant certification from UCLA. Worked at major Los Angeles law firm before stock market investments permitted early retirement. Have traveled extensively and often to Europe, and its cities feature in my stories..."Murder Without Pity" (Paris), and the soon-to-be released "The Killing Ploy" (various cities), along with its sequel, "Darkness and Blood" (various European cities).

Murder Without Pity
Atmospheric Murder Mystery
Paris, France: dark with fog, riots over police killings, and Far Right demagogues.
Here state criminal investigator, Stanislas Cassel, grandson of a French propagandist for the Nazis during WWII, works at the Palace of Justice. Ashamed of his family's infamy, he avoids anything political. Instead he absorbs himself solving small crimes. Little does he suspect the life-changing shock awaiting him when he looks into the bizarre murder of a pensioner, who seemed to have lived an uneventful life.
Murder Without Pity by Steve Haberman, a mystery thriller for today's turbulent, dangerous times!
