Chapter One of The Seattle Changes

Proximal To Murder

Purchase Proximal To MurderSteve Raymond never wanted to be a cop. He never wanted to be a private eye. He was, in fact, a member of the nice, quiet profession of dentistry. So the one thing Steve Raymond, D.D.S., never figured on was having to solve a murder. Then one night, in a local Seattle tavern, Steve finds himself the only doctor in the house when a local musician collapses onstage and the mysterious circumstances surrounding the musician's death gradually pull the reluctant dentist into conducting his own investigation. But no one else believes it's murder: not his wife, the lawyer, or his best friend, the cop. Steve is on his own this time as he tracks down the most unexpected killer of all.
