Read full description of the books:
Suffering from insomnia, wise-cracking tough guy Thomas O'Shea goes for a late-night stroll through the peaceful streets of Rockbluff, Iowa, and finds himself pausing downtown on the bridge that spans the Whitetail River. When he glances downstream, something catches his eye…something that looks like a body. He scrambles down to the riverbank, pulling the body of a young girl from the water. The girl is naked, with two bullet holes in the back of her head. Ever suspicious of law enforcement, O’Shea chooses not to mention the bullet holes when Deputy Stephen Doltch, on routine patrol, discovers him at the river's edge.
When the coroner's report lists the cause of death as "drowning," Thomas confronts the coroner, but his questions are met with hostility. Then the coroner and his wife disappear, along with the body of the dead girl.
Teaming up with his friend Lunatic Mooning and Clancy Dominguez, an old buddy from his Navy SEAL days, Thomas and the other two men join together to bring justice to the dead girl, a quest that takes them to the Chalaka Reservation in Minnesota, seedy businesses adjacent to the Chalaka Casino, and straight into the world of organized crime.
A fast-paced story, laugh-out-loud moments and familiar, quirky characters from Carenen's debut novel, Signs of Struggle, continue to enliven the complex world of Thomas O'Shea. Once again, Thomas gears up to find answers that will reveal who put the bullets in the girl's head, why she was killed, and her identity, which may hit a little too close to home.

Read information about the authorAn Iowa native, I was born and raised in Clinton, home town of the American movies’ first sex symbol, Lillian Russell. I graduated from Clinton High School with no distinction, direction, or enthusiasm. I attended several colleges, graduating from the University of Iowa with a B.A. in English, then an M.F.A. in Fiction Writing from the Iowa Writers Workshop. These accomplish-ments stunned my high school guidance counselors. Later, I earned an M.A. from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, in Special Education.
I have had two careers. One has been as an English professor in various colleges; the other, working with emotionally-disturbed adolescents in programs in North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina. I am a four-year veteran of the USAF. I am happily married to my long-suffering wife, Elisabeth, who taught English to 9th graders. At the end of the day I would say to her, “Here, have some wine. And she does. And so do I.” She is happily retired.
We have two grown daughters. The elder is a tenured, published professor at Eastern Connecticut State University. The younger daughter is a published poet, living in the Greenville area and working for The Governor’s School for Fine Arts Foundation. I am unreasonably proud of my wife and daughters. We have a pitbull mix rescue dog (Lily) and a cat (Beeker) who refuses to follow instructions.
I was an English professor for ten years at Newberry College, located in the South Carolina town by the same name. I have published a variety of articles in various commercial magazines, poetry and short stories in literary venues, and a novel (Son-up, Son-down) sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health.
My mainstream commercial novel, Signs of Struggle was published by Neverland Press in September, 2012. The sequel (2nd in a series), A Far Gone Night, was published October 2014. The third, The Face on the Other Side, was published in March, this year. I am hard at work on #4, plus another, stand-alone novel about a lonely man living in the mountains of North Carolina, who sees a murder but does not report it.
For fun, I think about working out, go on a hike every now and then, read everything from Robert B. Parker to Dorothy Ayers, and play with my dog, Lily. I also take frequent naps.
Enough about me. I'll be adding books as I come across ones I think you'd like, including some classics from the past. Thanks for stopping in.
