Donald Edward Peters has a new release coming out very soon, here is a little bit on the novel and on DEP himself :
"The Pride of Lyons"
Quince is a part-time bouncer, part-time private investigator who’s saddled with an unfortunate, famous first name. When his friend and attorney, Jim Curtain, offers him a job, Quince takes the case with no thought of the consequences.
Quince’s client is Peter Lyons, a well-respected businessman, philanthropist and former governor. But Lyons has a dark secret. He is gay, and someone has obtained pictures of him with a male prostitute at a resort in Jamaica. Gearing for another run for office, Lyons is terrified the information will get out.
Following the blackmailer’s trail takes Quince to an exotic resort in Jamaica, the rarified air of the Kentucky horse racing scene and all the way to Southern California. Along the way, he finds there is more to the story then just simple blackmail, and he is forced to take drastic measures to stay alive and protect those he loves.
With an unforgettable protagonist and cast of supporting characters, The Pride of Lyons will keep you glued to the pages until the amazing and unexpected finale.
A little about DEP: I've had what you could call an eclectic work career. I've been a pizza-parlor busboy, bowling alley attendent, journalist, medical equipment salesman, Army officer and owner/breeder/insurer of race horses. I grew up in a small California town that turned into a large one I hardly recognize, and frequently get lost in when I visit. I'm a proud graduate of the University of Oregon (I really enjoyed my third sophomore year) with a degree that makes me really good on Jeopardy but is pretty much totally worthless in any other setting.
