Racing the Devil: A Jared McKean Mystery
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: February 2012
Duration: 8 hours 15 minutes
Nashville private investigator Jared McKean has a son with Down syndrome, a best friend with AIDS, an ex-wife he can't seem to fall out of love with, and a weakness for women in jeopardy—until one frames him for murder.
His DNA and fingerprints are found at the murder scene, his voice is on the victim's answering machine, and the victim was killed with a bullet from his gun. To make matters worse, his teenage nephew comes out of the closet and runs away to join a dangerous fringe of the goth subculture.
Now Jared must find a way to clear his name, hold his family together, and solve a case that could cost him his life.
"Terrell's voice on the page has the sound and pace of great mystery writers like Dashiell Hammett and Lawrence Block but does it with originality and avoids clichés. I don't know of a single current writer who has both that perfect ear for the genre and the ability to make it seem fresh and new at the same time."—Michael Orenduff, critically acclaimed and award-winning author
