The message is given quickly – your daughter has just been arrested for the murder of her supervisor at the Children’s Service Agency. Al hires a rapidly rising criminal lawyer from Toronto on the condition that she accepts as part of the defence team his investigator, Norm, an unorthodox ex-cop from L.A. The lawyer resists but the money is too good to refuse. Such a high profile case and its incumbent publicity will establish her rep. Almost immediately, it is apparent that there are some very dark perverted forces at work in the Riverview area. When the supervisor’s wife is also murdered, the investigation takes on a new and dangerous direction. The future of Al’s daughter pivots on the ability of Norm to find
a young girl he believes may have run away to Toronto.

A wealthy Canadian has fatally shot someone and is about to be charged. He needs legal assistance, and because he is wealthy, he can afford the best. The bulk of the novel is the story the Canadian tells his two lawyers before they have to go before a judge. The inciting force is the desperate attempt by the protagonist to re-capture the happiness he shared with his wife who had been killed five months earlier. By chance, he has seen the exact image of his wife – in her twenties – in a current film. He needs to find this actress who so much resembles a younger version of his lost wife. He is desperate. He heads to Los Angeles in the belief that he can locate this mystery woman. He fails. He hires a private investigator with the proviso that they work together. Success – a few days later he meets Barbara, the image of his wife in her late twenties. A financial arrangement is struck. They spend an idyllic two days together and then Barbara is found dead. Once again he needs the detective, this time to help him find a killer as he now has become a “person of interest” to the L.A.P.D.

  1. I love the clearwater book and I would like to know if you will be writing anymore…Please do I have read them all and have already reread them

  2. Hi Al, I have read all of your Clearwater Books. I love reading about Joe, Mia, Max and everybody. I was excited to see Clearwater Magic is available through Smashword. I have a Nook, and they are too slow in getting books, so I downloaded Clearwater Magic through Smashwords. I was so dissapointed to see it’s only 127 pages. Please keeping writing all of these great books, but give us more to read in each one. 127 pages is just a tidbit, so please give us more Doc, Mia, Max, Coop and Mrs. Thornberry in each book, because they deserve more reading material. I really hope there is a follow up to Clearwater Magic soon, because I’ll be finished it by tomorrow. Thanks.

  9. I recently read the Clearwater Journals on my nook. I downloaded it after seeing it on my friend’s book list. I didn’t realize how many books are in the series. I want to read them all. Do you recommend reading them in order? I tried to write down the order of the books, but I couldn’t figure out where Clearwater Vice, Clearwater Oops! Clearwater and Gunlukleri falls in the order. I love what I’ve read so far.
