Nagler 6: Title, ‘Nagler’s Secret’

There’s a lot going on Frank Nagler World.

A new audiobook, a new mystery (2022), and story ideas for Book 6.

So, start here:

While casting about for a framework for the next Frank Nagler mystery I read a news story from Boston about a man being released from jail  after 20 years because the police had fabricated evidence  and staged its discovery.

Seemed like a good place to start.

I already know that a character from book three, THE WEIGHT OF LIVING,  will return with a fascinating story to tell.

The return was foretold in the coda to book five, DRAGONY RISING.

Oh, wait – Getting ahead of myself.

Sorry to tease.

DRAGONY RISING is expected to be published in 2022. Look for details.

In the meantime, while planning for the next book in the series, I asked how that old cold case might affect Ironton N.J. Detective  Frank Nagler and his reputation as a stalwart cop and protector of his home town.

What if there was something unknown in his past?

So, there’s the title of Nagler 6: “NAGLER’S SECRET.”

Closer at hand, upcoming is the release of the Audiobook version of  A GAME CALLED DEAD,” read by Dane Petersen.

That will be the third audio version of the series,

Lee Alan read the SWAMPS OF JERSEY and Dane read THE RED HAND.
