Profile Information

Baltimore, MD
About Me:
A reader, writer, and a fan of all types of detective noir who works in law enforcement.

"You go when you're supposed to go and everything else is homicide."

"Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. The detective must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor. He talks as the man of his age talks, that is, with rude wit, a lively sense of the grotesque, a disgust for sham, and a contempt for pettiness."
- Raymond Chandler

GIRDLES and FAT LADIES (updated)

The internal affairs investigator came out to the waiting area and brought

me back to his desk. He was short and heavyset, almost dumpy looking.

He had a gut that was so huge he would have to take someone else's word


it to see if shoes were tied. I guess that was why he wore penny loafers. His plaid jacket was probably in style when he wore it for his

I sat and thought abou t everything. About me, Michael Abromowicz. The

Polock cop. Probably destined to be a cop having been named after the

Patron Saint of police officers, Michael the Archangel. My mother,

Helena (God rest her soul) wanted to name me after Saint Stanislas, the

famous Jesuit and patron of Poland. But my… Continue

I sat in the Internal Affairs office with an old metal fan blowing from a

corner of the room. The IA office was in one of the older more run down

buildings that the police department had. I wondered if they did that

on purpose, for effect. No one liked coming here anyway. It was never

for anything good. It was like going to the vice principal's office

when you were a kid. But my… Continue

I put my raid jacket on. It had POLICE in large letters on the back with police over the right breast and a detectives badge over the left. It

was designed so that we fulfilled the legal requirement of “displaying

the badge of authority” and to make people KNOW we were cops when we

served warrants. Rob and I didn’t need… Continue

It was a hot and humid summer morning. The kind of morning that made your shirt feel more like contact paper. We had tracked him to a small apartment building in the middle of the city. It was early, the twilight time for gangstas, addicts and killers. Real people were just waking up. But those who lived in the alternate universe, this neighborhood, were just ending their day. You could walk through this area of the city at noon and find almost no one… Continue

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

The Ravens was robbed. But hell, 4th and 3 inches, they would have clicked off a few more seconds. Shame about the sack of Flacco. If he had seen him coming, he would have made ten yards around the right side.

Love your page. Great shots of (I assume) Baltimore. And the name is perfect... like you speak for the dead from the killing streets.
