Beneath Juliette:


“This is the most powerful and subtle, humorous and wonderful debut novel I have read in decades.” -- Clyde Mitchal, Youngstown Reviews


“I’m very impressed with Beneath Juliette. This is a fine writer and the characters really come alive, especially the villain.” -- Charles Salzberg, author of “Swan’s Last Song”

Beneath Juliette is a gripping tale of crime, obsession and one man's search for the truth. It is a story of personal courage against monumental obstacles and of lost love.


Twenty years ago an obscure policeman in a small rural town dies under mysterious circumstances. Today a modern television reporter, Brendan Macbean, locally famous for his quirky human interest stories becomes obsessed with rooting out the truth. He runs afoul of a rich and powerful family who will use their ruthless methods to keep their secrets buried.


On this sweeping stage of human passion, a murderous villain appears, who seems to hold all the strange secrets hidden for all these years, but who now sits on death row for seemingly unrelated crimes. Macbean must make a pact with this vicious criminal and must convince him to tell all he knows before lethal injection silences him forever.


Battling against subterfuge, intimidation and extreme violence, Macbean uncovers one shocking revelation after another in his relentless quest to bring the truth to light.
