New SciFi Crime Noir Novella

Book two of the Capital City crime series is available. I finished this novella sometime last year after I wrote the first installment in the series. After completely re-editing the first book to make it scifi and switching it from third person to first, there was no way of getting around doing the same thing for Dream Street. Since I’ll be on the road for the better part of three months, I thought it best to get all of my loose ends tied up and published, and that included the two books in this series, which were already written and just needed polishing. I hope to be able to write while I’m traveling, but I expect my creative expenditures will be limited to plotting. If that’s the case, at least I’ll be able to hit the ground running when I get back. I hope everyone has a lovely summer.

In a future where everyone is watched, how can a killer get away with murder?

Dream Street is a black scar on the face of Capital City. The downtown alley is a deathtrap for any citizen, good or bad, who wanders too close. When one of the city’s most beloved charity workers is found murdered at the entrance to the alley, Detective Jack Rose is sent a clear message from the new boss on the Street: anyone who interferes with the operation, dies. Jack soon learns it wasn’t just a single charity worker disrupting the Street’s illegal operations, it was a whole team, and they are all marked for death.

And just because Jack’s life should never be too easy, the upcoming Mayoral election has lit a fire under the Deputy Mayor, and he wants to gut Dream Street for the good of the people, and for his campaign—even if a murderer gets away in the process.

In a race against the clock, Jack and the other detectives of Capital City’s Fourth Precinct must find a way into the heart of Dream Street to catch a killer who will not stop until all of his enemies are dead and buried.


As with the first book, Dream Street will only be available on Amazon for the first three months. If any of you has a different brand of eReader, drop me a line at newsletter@sam-best.com and we can work something out.
