Face of the Enemy is the first novel in the New York in Wartime mystery series that focuses on a seasoned homicide detective and two young women, a nurse and a reporter. As war unfolds and transforms the city, the three New Yorkers encounter the best and worst the uneasy home front has to offer. The best includes sacrifice and true patriotism, while the worst brings racial paranoia, political intrigue, sabotage, profiteering and, of course, murder.
December, 1941. With New Yorkers painfully aware of their vulnerability after the Pearl Harbor attack, the FBI prowls the city snatching up Japanese residents. Troubles multiply for a sensitive Japanese artist when she’s accused of murder as well as espionage. Is Masako Fumi guilty? Or a victim of racial paranoia?

My Tito Amato Mysteries follow the career of an 18th-century castrato singer with a generous heart and a yearning for justice. In Tito's world, music and murder make a deadly duet as the Venetian Empire slowly expires in a blazing carnival of intrigue and pleasure. While I work on book #6--WHISPERS OF VIVALDI-- get a taste of the series on my Book Trailer page.
