Two Shades of Vice: Based on the true story of an interracial couple's life together in crime - a page turning true crime story by Dewey B. Reynolds
https://www.amazon.com/Two-Shades-Vice-interracial-together-ebook/dp/B072HGRY2Z

Based on the true story of a 1960s interracial couple who enters a dramatically dark world of crime where they are challenged by law enforcement, the Ku Klux Klan, gangsters, and rival street hustlers.

Richard and Mildred Loving were an interracial couple, but neither one of them were criminals. During the same period of the Lovings relationship, a rare brand of interracial couple would emerge. Enter Alla Mae Briggs. She is four foot eleven and one-hundred twenty pounds of pure street hustle. Alla Mae has engaged herself in crimes such as prostitution, petty larceny, theft, and forgery. It is the early 1960s and vice is at an all-time high on the dangerous streets of Kansas City, Missouri.

Alla Mae has never worked a legitimate job in her young life and probably never will. She meets her match when a career criminal named Gordon Reynolds witnesses her skills as a masterful street hustler. Her ability to con and rob men of substantial amounts of money is the perfect recruit for his criminal stable. There might be a twenty-six year difference between their ages, but they won’t allow the wide gap to stop them from making money together. Alla Mae and Gordon realize that they’ll be facing incredible odds against a predominantly white racist society.

They’re very well aware that interracial unions are outlawed in seventeen states across America. Missouri is definitely one of the frontrunners in stopping blacks and whites from marrying or living together. Despite the ongoing threats of the anti-miscegenation laws, they move forward with their plans to make money together in vice. Gordon uses money obtained from his criminal activities to purchase two houses at the far north end of Kansas City. These houses will be used solely for the purpose of prostitution, drugs, liquor, cigarettes and a little gambling.

Gordon gives Alla Mae exclusive control over prostitution inside both bawdy houses. She utilizes her skills of recruiting experienced prostitutes to come and work for Gordon. Customers visit the houses and are given a choice between their selection of luscious prostitutes. While Alla Mae handles the prostitution end of their vice activities, Gordon and one of his closest friends set up rooms in the bawdy houses to stash the liquor, dope, cigarettes, and illicit cash. What will Gordon do when his supplies get low? He’ll do what any other smart street hustler will do. Hijacking, stealing, robbing, and bribing are his methods of obtaining more goods that his customers so desperately need and want.

In the end, Gordon Reynolds and Alla Mae Briggs learn that they have a lot more in common than just a life of crime. It was their love for one another which bridged the gap between their big age difference and the color of their skin. Based on Dewey Reynolds’ nonfiction, true crime book about his real life parents, who were a white man and a black woman, and who were two people who started out together in a life of crime, but ended up expressing their undying love for one another.

The King of Amsterdam - hard-boiled detective action from Joe Curtis
https://www.amazon.com/King-Amsterdam-Johnny-Black-Private-ebook/dp/B073SNPM13

Johnny Black thought he’d left his wild side—well, at least his wildest side—behind.  Then she Skyped back into his life.  Erika was an old flame in the Amsterdam who now runs a gentleman’s service, asks for his help because a serial killer has taken the lives of a couple of her friends.  Johnny is a former priest who has turned private investigator after a run in the tight but sinister world of international diplomacy.  Now he uses his knowledge of the dark side of human nature into solving cases that other private eyes wouldn’t take and couldn’t solve. While the money for the job is not the best, Johnny agrees to do it to help an old friend and reconnect with his past. 

But this ain’t your daddy’s Amsterdam.  Corruption is ultimately much deeper and more widespread than he could ever assume.  He enlists the aid of and old acquaintance named Ben from Johnny’s diplomatic days who helps him with the case ever assume, and it will continue to claim lives if these murders go unsolved.  An outsider to the current seedy scene in the Amsterdam, he constantly faces danger from both it as well as his own inner temptations, which almost get the better of him.

It does not take Johnny long to finger one Rolf Tulp, a pimp and dealer with a mean violent streak as someone directly involved in trafficking and capable of murdering to protect his investment. He also knows how to protect himself with plenty of goons and guns. Johnny has to break through that shield and get close to the sleaze and to the world of crime that must be the source and sanctuary of the murderer or murderers.

Standing in the way are not other criminals trying to shut down the case and let their good times roll but a hard-nosed sergeant and a corrupt mayor. Dirk Bicker is a cop who’s almost as hard-nosed as Johnny, who will not rest until he finds an answer. The mayor, known by the nickname the Worm, is also of no help. In fact, he uses his power and influence to try to get Johnny kicked out of town and the whole country. What is the mayor hiding? Who are he and the sergeant protecting? 

Finally deciding to leave past and present temptations and issues behind, Johnny Black takes on not only the violent human trafficker Rolf Tulp but a corrupt mayor and police force to solve the case.  In the process, he briefly reignites the passion between himself and Erika as well permanently reignites his passion for justice.

The King of Amsterdam is for readers who enjoy hard-hitting detective stories and would love to travel to Amsterdam, or maybe they have been there many times. Either way, they can sit back and travel and investigate with Johnny Black in this and in his future cases: Honolulu Maybe, Roman Hellfire, and Washington Capital.

Newspaper reporter Emery Rose did not believe in the idea that lost spirits existed. Still, she had heard the stories from 1956 when Audra Sullivan had taken her life in a tower atop the Hotel Galvez, when her merchant marine groom did not return from sea. Reports were that he had been aboard a ship lost in a major hurricane. Still she waited to no avail, until she made the dreadful decision to end the misery.

Unable to cross over, Audra haunts Emery's dreams, until the reporter decides to spend a night at the Galvez to either debunk the legend or help the spirit of the lost bride break her ties to earth.

In the heart-wrenching struggle, Emery becomes entangled within a force stronger than herself. The mission to save Audra becomes  a quest to free herself, with the support of  the love of her life who reappears when she needs him the most.

"Riveting and action-packed. Very plausible story lines. Good character development. Looking forward to more books from The Phoenix Series." 

This early review sums up what I was aiming for with this box set. Life is all about balance; good and evil, laughter and tears, and the whole series tries to demonstrate how a secret organization could redress the balance where the system fails to give the victims closure, or justice, and criminals walk free. The main character, The Phoenix was the anti-hero in my first two novels that preceded the series. Why did I continue to write about him? There were so many stories to choose from in the headlines that it was too good a chance to miss. The Phoenix is a vigilante killer. Well, aren't there days when you wish you could right a wrong, redress the balance?
