Rick Crane, Book 3, Coming in August

“Mary’s Fate,” the third book in the Rick Crane Noir Series, is coming in August.

So now is the time to read the first two books in the detective series that follows hard-boiled private eye Rick Crane, the Upstate New York gumshoe who has a knack for getting into trouble on his way to solving the case.

The first book in the series is “Cooper’s Daughter.” Here’s the description from Amazon:

Cooper's Daughter Cover

When his daughter is found dead in a Binghamton rail yard and the police treat it like a cold case, Bill Cooper hires the one man who can figure out what happened – Rick Crane. But as the Upstate New York private eye digs into the case, everyone tells him to “let it go.” Crane doesn’t, and soon discovers that the death of COOPER’S DAUGHTER was about much more than the murder of one wild young woman.

The second book in the series is “Jimmy’s Nephew.”

Jimmy's Nephew

When mob boss Jimmy Ricchiati’s nephew, the up-and-coming middleweight boxer – Joey “Boom Boom” Bonadeo – winds up dead along with several local priests, Rick Crane is called into action. Set in Upstate New York, the second book in the Rick Crane Series is filled with the twists and turns that fans of author Mark Yost have come to expect as his private investigator hero looks under the hood of the Catholic Church and uncovers its decades of misdeeds and cover-ups as he searches to discover who killed Jimmy’s nephew in this non-stop noir thriller.

“Mary’s Fate” will be published by Stay Thirsty Press.

About Mark Yost
Mark Yost is the author of the Rick Crane Noir series, published by Stay Thirsty Press. Rick Crane is the classic, anti-hero private eye in the spirit of Sam Spade and Jim Rockford. He works in the unmistakably noirish underworld of Upstate New York, running errands and fixing problems for Jimmy Ricchiati Sr., one of Upstate New York's most notorious crime bosses. But readers quickly learn that deep down, Rick Crane is one of the good guys. "Cooper's Daughter," the first book in the widely acclaimed series, is a fast-moving tale in which a heartbroken father comes to Rick and asks him to find out what really happened to his daughter, who was murdered and the details buried in the Unsolved Crimes File of the local police department. The second book in the series is "Jimmy's Nephew," which begins with the death of Joey "Boom Boom" Bonadeo, an up-and-coming boxer and the nephew of Rick's underworld boss. What starts out as a routine investigation turns into a case that will test Rick's faith -- in the Catholic Church and his fellow man. Book No. 3 in the series, "Mary's Fate" is due out in August 2015. Mark Yost also writes for The Wall Street Journal Arts in Review page, as well as the Book Review section. He is a member of the Mystery Writers of America -- Midwest Chapter, International Thriller Writers, and a number of other author groups. He is also a member of the Amazon Author's Program. Mark lives in the Loyola neighborhood of Chicago, but he and his son, George, call the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn "home."
