Short prequel to the Eli Quinn detective mystery series.

Cover design by John Trent.

The story of Eli Quinn, private investigator, really starts here, before he becomes a detective. On the heels of the first two books in the series—CLOSURE & DRONE—it was time to circle back and, in this very short prequel, reveal the events that shaped the man.

“An excellent quick mystery.”
“An engaging tale of pursuit.”
“Britt writes tight prose.”
— Amazon Readers

The book jacket blurb:

A silent shooter kills Eli Quinn’s wife at a public rally, in a scene captured on video in broad daylight, then vanishes. The case goes cold until Quinn’s colleague, investigative reporter Samantha Marcos, suggests they team up to solve the seemingly random murder.

Quinn and Sam embark on a months-long investigation that leads to a harrowing chase through a fog-shrouded forest as Quinn and his K-9 companion, Solo, hunt down the elusive killer.

In this brief, fast-paced prequel to the Eli Quinn detective mystery series, Quinn tests the physical and mental skills that later define him as a private eye.

Shorter than the other Quinn books, this fast-paced yarn is a lickety-split read, as Jack Beachum might say.

MURDER MOUNTAIN is available in paperback or ebook on Amazon.

About the Series (See All the Quinn Books)

Eli Quinn is a bit of a wise-ass, a former reporter plenty tough enough for his new job. He doesn’t pack a gun, but he knows how to handle bad guys when he needs to. It isn’t always pretty. For the bad guys, that is. Follow Quinn as he tries, always, to do the right thing, even when it’s not the easy or smart thing.

“Quinn’s second case reads as if it were written by a master reaching the height of his craft. With its witty banter, cast of colorful secondary characters, and promising detective agency, DRONE sidles into the genre with aplomb.” ★★★★★
Foreword Clarion Reviews

“Jam-packed with thrilling fight scenes, witty banter, and well-worn characters, FIRST KILL is an excellent addition to the private detective genre with a likeable hero and a lovable sidekick.”  ★★★★★
