New Mystery by K.M. Hodge

True Blue Son (The Syndicate-Born Trilogy Book 3)
by K.M.Hodge

The Son—born to save them all.

Dr. Zander Ride grew up a son of The Syndicate, his fate as a career criminal all but sealed. With the help of his mother, he escaped a life of crime… until the night he heard The Syndicate had shot his mother in cold blood.

Zander soon finds refuge in the hands of his mother’s hacktivist group, who want his help bringing down the notorious group once and for all. But it comes with a cost. Managed by a different leader and guided by a new deadly mission, the hacktivists force Zander to confront the truth about his parents and the sacrifices they made for the cause.

In the end, Zander must decide how far he’s willing to go and what he’s willing to sacrifice. Can a child born of The Syndicate bring it all down, or will he be another pointless sacrifice in their struggle for money and power?

Who Loves Mysteries with Female Detectives?

Do you like female detectives as much as I do? I love Helen Mirren's, Jane Tennison, from the series "Prime Suspect"; Rachel McAdams' character in the second season of "True Detective"; and looking further back in time: Agatha Christie's "Miss Marple"; and every baby boomers' favorite teenage sleuth, Nancy Drew.

I've created three female characters who solve mysteries in my novels.  The first is Nancy Keene and she stars in a five book series: The Nancy Keene Mysteries.  These books are funny PG-rated stories inspired by the adventures of the famous teenage sleuth Nancy Drew. She was my childhood hero. My Nancy Keene Mysteries take place in some of my favorite travel destinations, so they are travelogues in addition to being cozy mysteries. 

Female Homicide Detective Clarissa Santy from Orange County, California stars in my four-book series entitled, "The Detective Santy Mysteries".  The series begins with the murder of her father when she was a young girl. When she turns 18, she looks into the court records of the murder trial and realizes that the wrong man was arrested.  As the series continues, she discovers who killed a priest at a nearby abbey and finds love where she wasn't expecting it.  While on her honeymoon in Savannah, Georgia, she becomes involved in a murder investigation when her cousin, a famous chef, is murdered.  All of the books in the series can be enjoyed as standalone stories.

My most recent detective, Yvonne Dauphin, struggles with bipolar disorder and lives in New Orleans. She risks her life and sanity when she checks herself out of the hospital after a meltdown, determined to prove to her boss and coworkers that’s she still up to the job of capturing a serial killer who has been terrorizing New Orleans. To further complicate matters, she’s hoping to reunite with her ex-husband while feeling a blossoming attraction to a young fellow detective.

I hope you like our latest leading lady and come along with her story in our latest mystery, "Fighting Demons: A New Orleans Mystery."

All of my books are available on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo.
