Stuck in paradise and he isn’t very happy about it. 
Even the beautiful lady detective that gunned down the man trying to kill them both can’t get him to stay. 
Corporal Sam Deland wants out. 
Back to work leading his squad of state troopers and home where he can take up the life he had to put on hold. 
But Sam isn’t the only one wanting him to return. 
The woman he left behind is waiting for him and so is the Russian Mob. Sam’s past is catching up with him, and he doesn’t see it coming, yet. 
Detective Christie O’Shea, the pretty Florida cop that nursed Sam back to health won’t have the time to miss him when he’s gone. 
Murder is what she’s paid to solve,
and she has to go after a killer that has sent shock waves deep into the police community around her. 
A triple play of heart stopping and heart warming suspense, action and life
as Sam, his troopers and Christie all find they are in the middle of murders and mobsters. A story that twists and turns through the investigations and the lives of characters you will grow to know, to cheer and to fear. Sharp dialogue, real characters and enough drama, humor and mystery to keep the reader up late not ready to put it down yet. 

Another thrilling Sam Deland crime novel from the author of Sink Rate and Rope Break.


After writing professional documents for many years, Mike has finally devoted time to his true passion, writing fiction where the story and characters come alive in the reader’s mind. While his days were filled with authoring hundreds of detailed crime reports, arrest affidavits, search warrants and grand jury presentments, he took some of his own time and devoured books by the dozens. Reading not only was a rewarding diversion, it provided him with the added education he needed to function at a high level in his profession.

This has led to the creation of Mike’s crime/suspense/detective novels Sink Rate, Rope Break and Side Slip, the first three in the Sam Deland Crime Novel series. All are expected to be published in 2015 and 2016 by Rogue Phoenix Press. 

Mike writes with the real life experience that many years of law enforcement shaped and influenced. The stories may be fiction but are based on how things happen in the real world.  His books are honest and captivating novels written with a unique voice that will both chill and charm.

Mike is a veteran police detective. He did it all from rookie patrolman to Senior Special Agent. His life has been enriched by a wonderful marriage, parenting, work, flying, sailing and good books. Mike is a lifelong outdoorsman, an experienced tactical firearms instructor, champion sailplane pilot and the captain of his own sailboat. All of these skills have made his novels vivid, exciting and real. Now retired after a career with three law enforcement agencies, Mike enjoys winters writing in Naples, Florida and summers sailing, writing and researching the next novel at his rural Pennsylvania home.

    1. Hey, Terry, glad you stopped by! Wonder if your to-be-read list is as long as mine?

  3. Thank you Genene for featuring my latest novel on your blog. Side Slip is the third in the series and has our hero in one of three stories within a story within a story. The character Detective Christie O'Shea is back from her appearance in the previous novel, Rope Break. Her story is a very personal one for me. A fictionalized version of a real drama from the past. Stay tuned, the next Sam Deland book (Ground Effect) is working its way through the process and will be out later this year. Also, Captain's Sortie, the second in my historical series is next up and will be on sale soon. Thanks again!


    1. Glad to hear there's another Sam Deland book in the works. I'll bet you have a lot of material for stories from your years as a detective. And looking forward to the release of Captain's Sortie!
