"Francis Sparks' MADE SAFE is a gripping, fast-paced and hard hitting thriller. Sparks' depiction of the gritty underbelly of the heartland will grab you by the throat and not let go. Hold on tight for a wild ride." Heather Gudenkauf ~ NYT bestselling author of The Weight of Silence
For Private Investigator, Moses Winter, the job just got more complicated. His adultery case has taken a violent turn landing the subject of his investigation, Fred Dunsmore, in the hospital and Moses in jail. Moses is held for questioning along with his erratic client, Sharon Dunsmore, and Fred’s mistress, a Bosnian refugee who just happens to be related to the DCI agent investigating the case, Raif Rakić.
After Rakić secures their release, Fred goes missing, and Moses Winter finds himself compelled to find him. With the assistance of Rakic, Moses unravels Fred's ties to Des Moines's underworld and is forced to confront the most heinous crimes of his career.
Moses Winter is a Private Investigator that gets a lot more than he bargained for when he takes on what should be a straightforward adultery case, when the cheater in question, Fred Dunsmore, ends up in the hospital with a stab wound, while the wife and girlfriend battle it out between them. But when Fred goes missing, Moses will find himself in much murkier waters than he thought possible. Joining forces with DCI Raif Rakic, who has a personal interest in the case as Mr. Dunsmore girlfriend is his cousin, they are determined to uncover the truth. But as they dig deeper they will uncover darker crimes than they ever thought possible. With excellent characterisation, a swelteringly intense atmosphere, and elements of humour scattered throughout the plot MADE SAFE by Francis Sparks is a crime fiction novel with a difference, and well worth reading.
BOOK RATING - 📖📖📖📖 4
Francis Sparks grew up on a farm in Iowa where he spent his days avoiding bulls and other livestock as he created castles in the pasture with odds and ends from the machine shed and his imagination. In middle school, he fell in love with reading when he discovered TSR/Wizard of the Coast’s treasure trove of fantasy novels and he began to dream of one day becoming a writer.
Working as a librarian’s assistant in college, he stumbled upon The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler and quickly devoured all of his novels and Francis’s love of the mystery/detective story was born.
In his early thirties, Francis began chasing his dream of becoming an author and began writing seriously. That dream came true when his debut novel Made Safe was signed by Pandamoon Publishing in 2016. Francis Sparks currently lives in Des Moines, Iowa with his amazing wife, Kelly. If he’s not working on his next novel or short story, you can find him teaching his children about dragons. For more information:
