TALLYMAN
Cain/Harper #3

FROM SUSPENSE PUBISHING

PRE-ORDER NOW

When Sonny Coleman is gunned down while on a late-night run near the community college where he teaches, his mother Erin Coleman, the US Ambassador to NATO, wishes to avoid his death becoming an international media circus. To this end, she hires Bobby Cain and Harper McCoy to discretely investigate her only son’s death. Shortly after their arrival in the rural Tennessee town, the body of a young woman is found and it appears she is the latest target of a killer known as The Tallyman, due to his tauntingly carving the victim number into the flesh of each corpse. But the killer, after tallying four murders, fell silent for several years. Why has he resurfaced now and why is the latest victim marked with a seven? Are there two missing bodies? Is his reappearance connected to the seemingly random murder of Sonny Coleman? The suspect list is tenuous at best and Cain and Harper must sort through past and present crimes, as well as Sonny’s life, to uncover a ruthless and truly sociopathic killer.

A fast-paced atmospheric thriller with endearing characters that stay with you long after you finish. A series that keeps getting better and better. Fans of Orphan X will love it.David Putnam author of the bestselling Bruno Johnson series

TALLYMAN, the 3rd in D.P. Lyle's Cain/Harper series, may be his best yet. It grabs you by the throat on page one and rides a roller coaster of tension, quality dialogue, and superior characters to the very end. This is a must read for thriller lovers.--Joseph Badal, Author of the Lassiter/Martinez Case Files Series

A dynamite addition to Lyle's Cain/Harper series. He expertly weaves his knowledge of true crime with a crackling plot and intriguing characters that fairly leap from the page. Highly recommended!--Weldon Burge, Author of "Harvester of Sorrow

Jake Longly is hoping for a few weeks of fun with Nicole in the warm Orange County, CA sun—The OC, baby. But they discover that Nicole’s friend Megan Weatherly, a local TV reporter, has picked up an anonymous stalker. As the shadowy man escalates his harassment, Ray and Pancake arrive.

The stalker is no fool, likely has past experience, and manages to cover his trail completely. Suddenly the sunshine and safety of The OC seem more facade than reality. Jake and crew must punch through that facade and dig into the dark world of celebrity stalking. The clock is ticking.

Snappy dialogue, fun characters, smart writing, a juicy mystery-- all had me flipping pages until I reached The End. Jake and Nicole remind me of my favorite mystery duo, Nick and Nora Charles, with a modern twist. The Jake Longly series never fails to entertain.~ Allison Brennan, New York Times Bestselling Author

Another grand slam in an immensely entertaining series—Sheldon Siegel, New York Times bestselling author

Another witty, fast-moving, adventure for Jake & Nicole, the 'Nick & Nora Charles' of the 21st Century.--Lee Goldberg, #1 New Your Times bestselling author

The dialogue, as always, is witty, fun and the characters wrap you up in a mystery that remains suspenseful through the very last word.-Suspense Magazine

Snappy patter lifts this bright look at a dark subject. Lyle should win new fans with this one.-Publishers Weekly
