‘A Game Called Dead’ named contest winner

“A Game Called Dead,” my second Frank Nagler mystery, has been named a Runner-up in Shelf  Unbound Media’s  2016 Best Indie Book contest. 

Thanks Shelf Unbound!

“A Game Called Dead,” is the sequel to “The Swamps of Jersey,” the first Frank Nagler Mystery.


Nagler is called to investigate the brutal attack on two women at the local college. It begins a tale of urban terror, much of which seems to be directed at Nagler and his associates.

DEADCOVER715 The story introduces the mysterious terrorist #ARMEGEDDON, who taunts the police from cyberspace.

The title comes from the students’ name for a video game that has taken on a real-world life.

 “The Swamps of Jersey” tells the story Ironton, N.J, Detective Frank Nagler, who must sort out the murder of a young woman, allegations of political corruption, a hint that the city’s famous serial killer may have a copycat, and the disappearance of his girlfriend. The story opens at the end of a weeklong tropical storm that wrecked the distressed city.

The third book in the series, “The Weight of Living,” will be published by Imzadi Publishing in early 2017.
